Here’s Why You Don’t Want to Buy Produce at BJs Anymore

Aldi or BJ's Wholesale club? Which one has cheaper produce? When I started really couponing , I'm talking about couponing where I only spent $30 a week on food I always found Aldi's produce prices to be cheaper.

Let's Look today at the produce prices at BJs Wholesale club compared to Aldi.

My couponing journey started in 2012 when I had a 1 and 3 year old. We were too deep in debt and our salaries were barely making ends meet.

I constantly watched the sales flyers for groceries to compare what store had the best deal. When I started my first blog I did so many comparisons and pricebooks.

My life was feeding babies, cleaning, and deal hunting.

Since acquiring the BJs blog 4 years ago now I've shifted my shopping to wholesale. I primarily shop BJ's and Tops.

I find I don't enjoy shopping at Aldi as much as I did in college. I recently took a stroll in Aldi and thought it would be a good time to do a recent price comparison.

Should we be buying our produce at Aldi over BJs?! Let's find out.

Things to Keep in Mind

BJ's Wholesale Club is a wholesale club. You have to PAY to shop there. You can easily get a $25/year membership or take advantage of a FREE three month trial membership.

Most items you will find in a larger size. Today I see more bulk items hitting the shelves at all grocery retailers.

This article is only comparing produce.

Were you surprised by the overall winner being Aldi? Keep in mind produce prices will change as items are in season. During the spring/summer/fall months you will find great prices on produce. In the past I have always found Aldi to be a better deal on produce items.

Always check your produce carefully before purchasing.
