Aldi vs. Weekly Loss Leaders: The Iron Chef Moms Challenge

March 13th, 2007 at 12:06 pm

Join me in following a friendly competition involving Amy from The Aldi Queen and Meredith from Like Merchant Ships.



For the course of the week-long competition, Amy will prepare dinner meals with food purchased exclusively at Aldi and Meredith will prepare dinner meals with food purchased exclusively with grocery store loss leaders.

To quote Meredith:

We'll each post our dinner menu, including shopping tips and a breakdown of its cost. At the end of the week, we'll total up and see which method came out ahead. Here are the rules we've agreed to play by:

Amy will purchase everything from Aldi. My groceries will come exclusively from next week's sale flyers. No freezer or pantry stockpile allowed! I'll also be keeping a log of how much time/gas store-hopping costs me.

Each night's menu will serve four people and include the main dish and sides. We'll calculate the cost per unit for each ingredient, except for "negligible" amounts of staples--less than 1/2 cup.

There will be a wrap-up at the end of the week and you, as readers, can feel free to critique our strategies, or offer up some of your own strategies.


Sounds like fun! Monday night results are already up. Be sure to check it out!
