Sometimes Discount is the Same

We use A LOT of butter.  I don’t know how we go through so much, but every night I lay out a stick so that in the morning, it’s soft.  I butter toast, butter bread, butter popcorn, season food.  Often, when I’m doing a lot of baking, I’ll lay out 2 or even 3 sticks at night.

Consequently, butter is something that I do not purchase organically.  It is just TOO expensive when you consider that a pound of organic butter is about $5.  In fact, we only purchase butter, if it can be helped, on sale and if it’s less than $2 per pound.  Then we buy as much of it as we can afford and then freeze it.  About once a week, I pull two pounds out of the freezer.

The other day, Kroger had butter on sale for $2.29 per pound.  Gregg called me and said that the Aldi in Lexington had butter for $1.89 per pound as a regular, non-sale price.  Aldi is a super discount grocery store.  I told Gregg I didn’t necessarily know about getting butter from there.  He stopped and bought one pound just for me to check it out.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the package and discovered that the sticks seemed identical to those from Kroger.

Upon further inspection, I found out that not only did they look the same – they were the same – even packaged in the same plant.

Needless to say, we no longer wait for $2.69 per pound butter to go on sale — we go ahead and just get it at Aldi.  But I do watch sales, and whenever organic butter falls below $3 per pound, I get as much as I can afford.
