Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week 5/14 – 5/20

Save money on groceries this week at ALDI!

 

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: I will definitely be getting Vidalia Onions, Mini Sweet Peppers, Tomatoes and Avocados! I’m thinking I will need to grill up some onions and peppers in my grill basket. If you don’t have a grill basket, ALDI has them on sale this week for $3.99. Mangoes are a great price too, but no Mango lovers in the ALDI Nerd household.
  • Cattlemen’s Ranch Black Angus Patties I bought these last week to try and they were great! I want to get get the grill out and try them with the Specially Selected Pretzel Hamburger Buns!
  • Stonemill 4-in-1 BBQ Seasonings – Yeah I have a ton of spices, but these 4-in-1s make it so easy to whip up a delicious dinner! They come in Burger, Chicken, Seafood, and Steak varieties and each one has 4 separate spice blends per container.
  • Burman’s Regional BBQ Sauce – With spare ribs being on sale this week for $1.79/lb it’s a great reason to pick up some unique sauce for it. Choose from Texas, Carolina, Kansas City, or Memphis Style. Or get a bottle of each and have a sauce tasting with friends! It would also be great to throw a Hormel Always Tender Fresh Boneless Pork Butt Roast ($1.79/lb starting Wednesday!!) in the slow cooker or Instant Pot to sample one of these sauces! Pulled pork sandwiches on Brioche Buns ya’ll!!
  • Clancy’s Party Mix – We buy the Cheddar Party Mix all the time here. For a limited time, you can get this awesome munchie in Bold or Honey Nut Flavor.
  • Cafe Valley 7-Up Cake – This won’t make it in to my cart, but I know a LOT of people have a thing for 7-Up Cake and wanted to point out that it is available.
  • Belmont Frozen Greek Yogurt – Flavors like White Chocolate Blackberry and Blueberry Cheesecake sound so delightful, I can’t NOT get one.
  • Benner Premium Iced Tea 6 pack – I love this tea! I always get the unsweetened, so I can’t vouch for the sweet stuff. This is great on it’s own, or I like to mix with some lemonade and get my Arnold Palmer on.
  • LaCroix Sparkling Flavored Water 12 pack – This is an EXCELLENT price for LaCroix! Twelve 12-oz cans for only $3.99 (plus deposit where applicable)!!! While I love this, I also love the ALDI version PurAqua Belle Vie Sparkling Water.
  • 10″ Hanging Baskets – Starting Wednesday, you can get these for only $5.99!! Pretty amazing and will definitely be picking some up!!
  • Clancy’s Roasted Sweet Corn Popcorn – Never had this, but looks like something I need to try!
  • Baker’s Corner Giant Marshmallows – Bonfires are right around the corner! Be sure to grab some of these for your S’more fest!
  • liveGfree Gluten Free Baked Chewy Bars – These are a staple in The ALDI Nerd Household. Love these delicious bars for on-the-go snacks and very (major) allergen friendly!

Stuff I'm Totally Buying This Week: May 14-20 www.thealdinerd.com

 

 

1 thought on “Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week 5/14 – 5/20”

  1. My new favorite snack is Aldi’s Chipotle Peanuts. I’ve already got a 6 can stock on hand, and if/when I want to tone it down a bit, I mix in the lightly salted peanuts. Both products (in my store now) are $1.99 per pound. Love your column, and Aldi. I’m a frequent flyer there, and use so much of the products, meats, produce, baby stuff. Love everything there, and the staff is on point.
