I work at Aldi – my favorite store secrets and clever way to avoid the plastic bag charge

SHOPPING at Aldi has always been affordable – but now, an employee has revealed how to make it much easier.

Julia Rowland, who claims to work for the supermarket chain, opened up about her three major hacks – and one of them will save you tons of money.

Taking to TikTok, the Aldi employee started off by reminding people to always bring a quarter because it's the only way to grant you access to a shopping cart.


Once inside, as you pack your cart, you'll want to make sure your food makes it back home intact.

For that, if you're purchasing grapes, hang them from the back of the shopping car seat.

It'll elevate them and prevent them from getting squished with other heavier items.


If you don't have a child sitting on the shopping cart seat, make sure to lift up the plastic to cover up the leg holes.

This way, you can put more fragile items on the seat and they won't fall out of your cart.


If you forgot to bring reusable bags and don't want to get charged for using plastic or paper ones, you can simply grab a box!

"As an Aldi employee, we don't mind at all," Rowland wrote.

This way, you can bring all of your items into your car and home easily without spending a single dime.

Following her video, many people took to the comment section to say how they've always appreciated the boxes.

One woman wrote: "Love that you used the box hack!"

However, a few other employees asked people to actually unload their boxes when paying for their products.

"Don't just sit the box full of stuff on the belt when you check out," one woman wrote. "Take the stuff out first."

And a second said: "I genuinely hate the box hack as a cashier.

"People pack the most things in the smallest boxes and won’t unload them to skip the bagging counter."

And a third even revealed her gardening hack: "My family always gets the boxes to put our stuff in and then we deconstruct them and use them as a weed barrier in our garden."

Cardboard is an effective weed killer because it creates a barrier, not letting them grow out of the flower bed.
