Market Friday - Actifit Report: February 7 2020

in actifit •  5 months ago  (edited)

Hi friends! Thank God it’s Friday! What a week. I was on a proverbial treadmill — cranked up to 7 — from the moment I woke up Monday morning. I’ve sucked at being a Steemian all week.

Which also means exercise was hard to come by. But every day I try to do something to move my carcass! Even if it’s late night and I’m just jogging in place in front of the TV like today.

But ... on to the topic of the day — Market Friday! This tag is hosted by the lovely, venerable, talented @dswigle! You must check out her posts if you have not yet done so.

You’re not going to believe this, but my Market Friday post is about Aldi. These stores are first of all my very favorite place to shop, and second of all they are popping up everywhere. I have three in my vicinity, and I go to all of them. The pictures here are from a recent visit to one of the newest ones which is so cute!

I’m just amazed that they have so much fresh, local and organic stuff!

In case you’re not familiar with Aldi, they are a grocery chain that keeps their costs down by purchasing off-brand stuff and making you bag your own groceries. You also return your own cart so they don’t have to pay someone to round them up.


They always have an awesome variety. And lots of great seasonal stuff too.

I just think its a brilliant business model. It is completely designed for efficiency so that people who are looking to save money on food and don't mind not being waited on have an option to cut their costs.

The way they get you to return your cart is that you put a quarter in a little slot in order to release a cart from the corral. Then when you're done shopping, you return your cart and get your quarter back. Simple yet brilliant!

And they have a policy for bags that I think should be universal: you must bring your own bags (preferably re-usable), or buy them there. I always bring my own bags!

Thank you for visiting!

Aldi kind of reminds me of what we call Grocery Outlet Bargain Markets. They don't charge for the carts though, and they do provide bags if you didn't bring your own at no charge as long as you are outside of Bellingham city limits. Good job with your 10074 @actifit steps! I too, was very glad it was Friday. I am looking now at a 4 day weekend! Yippe!! Have a good night!

Hooray for four-day weekends! Those are the absolute best. I only get them at Thanksgiving!

😊 Have an awesome day!

Looks like a great store. Plastic bags are not allowed in stores here. You have to bring your own bag or pay 15 cents for a paper bag...I often see folks carrying out loose items in their arms.

That is absolutely how it should be. Most plastic bags have a life of exactly one usage, and then they are around forever and ever and ever. This is my year to really focus on reducing my own carbon footprint and doing more for the planet.

Power on my friend... congratulations on the @actifit workout such a very good example!!
Have a good weekend!!!

Thanks so much, @silvertop. Have a fantastic weekend!
