Good Evening Nerds!

Can you believe it’s time for school supplies already? August is creeping up on us and ALDI is prepared to get everyone ready to go back to school! I know we have already gotten the supply lists for the upcoming year, so I guess I better get shopping! When do your kiddos head back?

If you haven’t already, be sure to “like” The ALDI Nerd on Facebook. Once we reach 2,500 likes, I’m going to host a GIVEAWAY to celebrate! So share the page, invite your ALDI-loving friends, or those you want to convert to the ALDI Way of Life!

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: This week I’m excited about:
    • California Strawberries – $1.19/lb
    • Cantaloupe – $0.99
    • Blueberries – $1.19/pint
  • Meat Specials: This week I’m totally grabbing some:
    • Fresh Family Pack Drumsticks – $0.69/lb
    • Fresh Boneless Pork Butt Roast – $1.69/lb
    • Fresh USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steak – $4.99/lb
  • Adventuridge Insulated Lunch Bag ($3.99) – I bought one of these for my daughter last year, and it held up so well! These feature a heat sealed lining, zipper closure, durable, easy care fabric, and come in a variety of styles and patterns. We will be using my daughter’s again  this year because it still looks great! I ended up getting 2 for my son because his other non-ALDI lunchboxes did not hold up so well last year.
  • SimplyNature Applesauce Cups ($1.49) – This are the only cinnamon applesauce cups that I can find that don’t have added sugar to them. Comes in two flavors (Cinnamon and Strawberry Banana) and I will definitely be stocking up on these for school lunches.
  • Clancy’s Cinnamon Apple Straws ($1.99)- This is the Veggie Straw’s better looking older sister. These are a favorite snack of ours in the ALDI Nerd household!
  • Fusia Crunchy Rice Rolls 8 ct ($1.29) – I went shopping today and these were out EARLY! I picked up 8 packages! We eat these on their own or dipped in nut butter. Delicioso!
  • Carlini Toasted Sesame Oil 16.9 oz ($5.99) –  If you like to do any sort of Asian Cooking then you definitely want to grab a bottle of this. The 16 oz will last you a long time, as most recipes only call for a couple tablespoons here and there. While you don’t use much, this definitely PACKS in the FLAVOR! I don’t know how to explain it, except it makes my Asian cuisine taste more authentic. It’s not an ingredient you want to leave out because you don’t have it. It just won’t taste the same.
  • Happy Farms Preferred Smoked Deli Slices 8 oz ($2.49) – This is another one I got early! Yum yum yum! This comes in Cheddar and Gouda (I got the Gouda) and the smokiness is perfect, giving my Gouda a meaty flavor to it.
