  • L’oven Fresh Honey Wheat Bread ($0.99) – Now you can get an already inexpensive, delicious bread for even LESS! Regular price on these is $1.49 (an amazing price in itself) and L’oven Fresh Breads don’t have that pesky high-fructose corn syrup in it like other bargain brands do!

The other week, there were Cinnamon and Strawberry Banana varieties available in-stores…I’m stocking up for the school year!
  • Crane Ladies’ 6-Pair Cushion Socks ($4.99) – I bought the Crane Ladies’ socks last time they were in-stores, and they have been working out great so far…only 5 bucks for 6 pairs!

  • Lunch Buddies PB&J Delights ($5.49) – I had a reader over in The ALDI Nerd Facebook Group looking for these, and now they are back! I’ve never had them, but excited to give them a try. This could make my lunch packing this year a whole lot easier!
  • Benton’s Mini Bear Grahams Snack Packs 12 ct ($3.99) – My kids love the chocolate ones that ALDI regularly carries, now we will be trying these special flavors out: Strawberry Banana and Apple Cinnamon. These are also naturally flavored…bonus!
  • Mama Cozzi’s Mini Pizza Crusts ($2.49) – Each kit contains 3 crusts, and 3 sauce packets. I have 3 children. I think the universe is telling me to buy these.
  • Whole & Simple Shrimp & Grains Single Serve Meal -($3.49) – The last time these were available they sold out quickly! I am IN LOVE with the Shrimp & Grains with Asparagus and will definitely be trying the Shrimp Tabouli with Quinoa. Nom nom nom.
