Living on a budget is important for Michigan residents. We have to budget for our homes, vehicles, medical costs, home emergencies, clothes, raising kids and groceries. The cheapest grocery store in America has 103 locations in Michigan.

I did the grocery shopping recently for our family and didn't care for it at all. I don't mind the shopping part of it, I really didn't like the cost! It's been a minute since I have done the shopping and was shocked at how much groceries cost. My wife has suggested that they are expensive but I didn't get it until I saw it in person.

The good news is, the cheapest grocery store chain in the U.S. has 103 locations in Michigan. We shop here occasionally and need to do it more often. Their meat and fresh fruit and vegetables are really good.


Where should you go to get the cheapest groceries in Michigan?

U.S. News & World Report has declared Aldi the cheapest grocery store in America. Anytime we've shopped at Aldi we've saved a ton of money. Although you have to bag your own groceries, it's no different then going thru the Uscan at Meijer of Kroger. There's more room to bag your groceries at Aldi.

Why is Aldi the cheapest?

Shopping is about value. What can I get for the best price. I am going to buy Aldi's strawberries at $3.99 per pound vs a competing groceries store price of $6.99 per pound. That's just common sense. The study continues.

Value for money: 90% of survey respondents said ALDI offers value for your money.
Locations: 2,300 stores across 39 states

ALDI is a discount grocery store with German roots dating back to 1961. Over the past 50+ years, however, the company opened more than 2,000 stores across 39 U.S. states. It aims to offer a no-frills shopping experience with hand-selected, high-quality products and low prices.
