Starting today, you can now use a credit card to shop at ALDI, so does that mean you'll change up how you shop in your neighborhood?

Previously, ALDI only allowed cash and debit cards, presumedly to keep costs down.

But that all changes today according to ALDI's website.

ALDI has a cult following of bloggers and meal planners online who pride themselves in knowing a budget when they see one. Headlines like "7 Dinners for Less than $50", "25 Meals for under $150" and "A 2-Week ALDIĀ Meal Plan" all boast about making the most of ALDI's low-cost stock.

We follow along because we're suckers for a meal plan!

Don't toss that car quarter though. No changes have been announced for the cart renting system!
