    I have used coupons since a teenager. When I started shopping at Aldi I realized the products
    were much cheaper & better quality than using a coupon. It turns out I was saving more money
    & less time spent clicking coupons to match my shopping list. I am convinced that the Switch &
    Save was for me. A no brainer.

  4. Gwenith Robbins

    I do 90% or more of my grocery shopping ar Aldi. I buy white vinegar and baking soda for the majority of my spring cleaning. I am allergic to many chemicals so I make my own cleaners. I save a ton of funny at Aldi
