Funny thing my mother actually mentioned Aldis to me a couple days ago. I told her I couldn't find one around but she's confident she passed one on her travels. I've looked at my area and how far I am able to go (15-20 mins away tops.) Its still not showing one for my area. But I will look again, she said its like Costco, if so then they should hold a good amount of food products I would hope.
It is like Costco, but on a grocery store scale. Easy to get in and out if time is a factor. They have mostly their own "store brands", but lately Aldi is carrying more and more brand names, too. The prices are unbelievably low. It is the first stop on my grocery days. I go once, sometimes twice, a month.

As far as the mint plant, I understand all of your comments, I really do. I agree with them. However it will be on just me to care for the plants and with cooking these meals, thinking about changing my major, a new job I am about to take over. I just don't want to bother with it until I know I am able. I would love to have a garden of my own, but currently not able. You can always assume that if I have the time and resources, I will have a big one.
I think they are talking a one-pot project with the mint. Just a flower pot, like any other houseplant.
