#John Hamilton on Nov 03, 2015 :
I have my receipt from ALDI right here. (I live in Alton, Illinois, which is a suburb of St. Louis.) A gallon of whole milk cost me $1.80, and a 10lb bag of Russet potatoes cost me $3.03 (or $0.30 per lb). You really have inflated prices for milk and potatoes on here. Meanwhile, I paid $1.27 per pound for onions at Walmart last week, so now I feel like I got gypped! Anyways, I only have these three items to directly compare to your numbers, and you were wrong on all three. I do not trust your numbers now.
