Good Morning Fellow Nerds!

Hope everyone has been having a sunny, relaxing weekend! I’m again, spending the morning enjoying an ice-cold glass of Barissimo Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate, and eating leftover dinner from last night, Fit & Active Turkey Breast Tenderloin. Odd combo I know, but that’s #reallife, am I right? 🙂

There are so many ALDI Finds this week that I want to get. It’s mostly stuff for your home, but there are a few food items sprinkled in there. Check them out below!

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: This week I’m excited about:
    • California Strawberries – $1.19/lb
    • California Plums or Nectarines – $0.89/lb
    • Mangoes – $0.49 each
    • Mandarins 3 lb bag – $2.69
  • Meat Specials: This week I’m totally grabbing some:
    • Fresh Family Pack Chicken Breasts – $1.69/lb (starts Wednesday)
    • SimplyNature Organic Grass-Fed 80% Lean Ground Beef Patties 2 lbs (frozen) – $9.99
  • Crofton Jumbo Storage Containers ($4.99) – These look like an awesome solution to organizing dry goods in the pantry. You can get a 42 cup container or a twin pack 21 cup containers. They seal, stack, and would be great to keeping flour, sugar, cereals, oats, and similar items fresher for longer. To give you a size comparison – a 5lb bag of flour is 20 cups.
  • Easy Home Ultra Hiphold 1.25 Bushel Laundry Basket ($4.99) – Now that my kiddos are putting away there own laundry. I need a couple of these to add to my basket collection.  They come in black and white and will fit snugly against your hip when carrying.
  • Easy Home 3-Tier Hanging Clothes Dryer ($4.99) – This hanging clothes dryer offers 12 sq ft of drying space and fits standard shower rods. I’m looking forward to having a new space to dry my delicates and even dry swimsuits in between swims.
  • Easy Home Spray Mop ($12.99)– I currently own a Swiffer Wet Jet, and while it has done well for me over the years, I’m tired of being required to by Swiffer specific floor cleaner. This Spray Mop from ALDI includes a resuable/washable microfiber mop pad and a refillable bottle so I’m able to fill it with my own cleaner! I love that the mop head goes in the washing machine, so then I’m able reduce the amount of mop pads that I have been buying.
  • Auto XS Trunk Organizer with Insulated Cooler  ($8.99) – I am looking at this product and thinking this would be excellent for family vacations and day trips to the beach/park. This insulated, zip top cooler, measures 16x10x21 and has Velcro on the bottom to hold it in place so it’s not sliding around the car! It comes in cute colors (including polka dots!) and folds-up nicely when not in use.
  • Easy Home Motion Lamp ($9.99) – I’m not sure if I will get this, only because some of my children are little and these kinds of lamps can get hot, but check this out!!! This is the ALDI version of the good ol’ Lava Lamp! There are assorted styles including the traditional “lava-style” lamp and also Glitter Lamps. These would be awesome for a dorm room, or an older-child. I don’t know personally how hot these ones get, I only know ones from years ago get hot so you don’t want little fingers touching them. For $9.99, that is a great price!
  • Medion LED Light Bulb Speaker ($16.99) – Have you heard of these before? It’s an LED light bulb that lights up with over 1,000 color combinations, is a Bluetooth speaker, and is all controlled from an app on your phone! You just replace this bulb with the one in any of your lamps!
  • Breakfast Best Blueberry Waffles ($1.49) – My kids love the Traditional flavored waffles, now we get to switch it up with some Blueberry ones! Yum!
  • Belmont Frozen Greek Yogurt ($3.49) – This is one of my new favorite cold treats ALDI has come out with this year. It comes in White Chocolate Blackberry and Blueberry Cheesecake…be careful…this stuff is dangerous!!
