FUN MONDAY - Shopping
Most of my grocery shopping I do in this supermarket. Aldi is a German supermarket chain, established in most of the European countries. The prices are cheaper and the quality is good, they don't have famous branded articles but their own once.
For long time it was considered as a supermarket for the poors at least here in Belgium. No posh lady would ever shop there officially. But I met them at Aldi and they weren't very happy about it. I even know one who admitted to buy her sparkling water here because it's half price and then she put it in Perrier bottles for her husband, who swore that Perrier tastes different than other sparkling waters ! Since a couple of years Aldi has another clientele. Everybody goes there now, the poshs have also realized that laundry can't get more white with expensive washing powders, unless you want to get blind.
Unfortunately I deleted the picture of the Aldi shop and my trolley so I took this one on Sunday. Sundays all shops and supermarkets are closed that's why you don't see any people.
Things I don't find at Aldi's I buy at Carrefour, which is a French chain. The day I went shopping the personal had been on strike the days before, because the Frenchs want to close down in some Belgian cities which would cost a lot of working places. As you can see it was rather empty in there and nothing fresh to buy.
For my cats I go to Tom & Co. They have everything a cat heart wants and of course for all other animals too. At least here I have picture of my shopping bag.
Usually I go grocery shopping once a week except of course when I need something special or especially fresh. For my cats I do it once a month.
Now I am curious to see your shopping habits.
