I don’t know about you, but living in New York, I have become a loyal Trader Joe’s shopper, mainly because prices tend to be less steep than competitors. We, of course, have other more expensive grocery options like Whole Foods, Gristedes, and Union Market in Manhattan that carry a multitude of brands, but finding an alternate affordable option like TJ’s definitely requires a little bit of work (read: one lengthy subway ride, several bus stops, and some walking later). I traveled to Aldi Grocry Store in Harlem to see if their prices on every day items could give Trader Joe’s a run for their money (literally), and made a surprising discovery when calculating what I was spending, ounce for ounce.
