If you’ve never shopped at Aldi, it's basically heavily discounted groceries. With the cost of groceries rising at a scary rate, we need an Aldi more than ever.

Both Aldi and Trader Joe's started off as the same store. Back in the 1960s the two brothers Karl and Theo split the company in two: Aldi Sud and Aldi Nord. Since then both businesses have expanded globally with Aldi Sud operating Aldi stores in the U.S. Aldi Nord owns the Trader Joe’s chain. Crazy right?
