Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: This week I’m excited about:
    • California Green Grapes – $0.89/lb
    • Large Mangoes – $0.79 each
    • Navel Oranges 3lb bag – $1.99
    • Tomatoes on the Vine 24 oz – $1.29
  • Meat Specials: This week I’m excited about:

    • Fresh Family Pack Chicken Drumsticks – $0.69/lb (starts Wednesday, August 16)
    • Backyard Grill Fresh Bacon Cheddar Seasoned Beef Burgers – $3.99/lb (starts Wednesday, August 16)
  • Happy Farms String or Spiral Cheese or Fit & Active Light String 10 oz ($2.29) – These fast, healthy, portable snacks are $0.50 less per package this week!
  • Simms Snack Sticks ($2.99) – Regularly $3.49! We all love to grab these for a quick low-carb snack! Comes in beef or turkey.
  • LunchMate Smoked Turkey or Smoked Ham 16 oz ($2.99) – Usually you’ll pay more for packages of lunch meat half the size of these!
  • Fit & Active Rice Snacks ($1.49) – The kids love to snack on these! Comes in Cheddar Cheese and Caramel, and this week, you can snag a bag for $0.80 less than the normal price of $2.29!
  • Countryside Creamery Spreadable Butter With Olive Oil and Sea Salt ($2.29) – I have always loved spreadable butter (not faux butter/margarine), but never wanted to buy it because it was more expensive than stick butter. ALDI sells it regularly for $2.29 for a 15 oz tub (elsewhere will cost you $3 and up), and for a limited time this Olive Oil & Sea Salt variety will be available to try!
  • Happy Farms Preferred Hot Gouda Cheese ($3.49) – I was able to snag some Ghost Pepper Cheese early! If you’ve never heard of a ghost pepper, well it’s a SUPER HOT little chili from India that is supposed to knock your socks off. I haven’t been brave enough to try more than a nibble yet, but I’ll keep you posted!
  • Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Snacks ($2.49) – Another one I was able to snag early! These aren’t too far off in price to other private label pizza snacks. Get the review later this week.
  • Little Journey Moist Wipes Bundles 216 ct ($3.49) – I’m soooo close to being done with wiping bums but I still buy these because they are great for everything! Sticky fingers, quick car clean ups, summer time baths…ha! 🙂 These work great for a great price at 1.6 cents per wipe ($0.02/wipe is the max I’ll pay!)

ALDI Finds

ALDI Finds are special products that ALDI carries for a limited time or while supplies last.
