A recent GOBankingRates survey found that Americans spend an average of $302 per month on groceries. Of course, there are plenty of ways to save money at the supermarket — from using coupons to taking advantage of sales or joining store loyalty programs. One of the simplest ways to cut the cost of groceries is to shop at the store with the lowest prices.
To find out which store is better for your budget, GOBankingRates compared prices at Kroger vs. Aldi. Kroger is one of the world’s largest food retailers. Despite its size, Kroger prices have fallen as the supermarket chain has tried to stay competitive with Walmart. Meanwhile, Aldi is a no-frills grocery chain that carries a select assortment of products, 90 percent of which are exclusive store brands. As a result, Aldi prices are up to 50 percent lower on frequently purchased items, the retailer claims.
