In Response to Re: ANOTHER PRICE HIKE ON THE WAY???????????????????:
I watch for close-outs after each type of holiday, i.e. Valentines etc. Half price or even 75% off are great deals. I noticed that Chocolate Chips are cheaper at a store called Aldi's. One of the companies makes it under the Aldi's name, like Nestle. I'm going to check walmart and stock up a little. They say, since the gas hike, everything is going up. It costs more to deliver food and anything else. I'll do the best I can. I love Chocolate.

DiAnne, Aldi is owned by the same family that owns Trader Joe's. Most of the House brands at Trader Joe's I would imagine to be pretty much the same at Aldi's. The company is based in Germany. (By the way try their chocolate very good.) They have a great policy, try any of their products, if you do not like it they will refund your money and give you another product.
They also carry name brand items at times. They will carry name brand items until they can have it manufactured for them and sell it as a private labeled item.
Aldi is one of the reasons I do not rely on coupons for a lot of items. You do have to watch some of their items, if produce is on sale at another store it is often less expensive to purchase produce at a regular grocery store.
