  1. I enjoy your articles. I am wondering if you might have any idea how to share suggestions with the “powers that be” at Aldi’s. One thing I am always frustrated about in the ads or online is the lack of information…. For example measurements/sizes of things. This applies more to the Aldi Finds whether it is a rug or a gazebo or a flower. Also the lack of nutrition information when looking at items online for delivery or just making a shopping list.
