Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: 
    • Large Seedless Watermelon – $2.69
    • California Strawberries – $1.19/lb
    • California Red Grapes – $0.89/lb
    • Michigan Blueberries – $1.99/pint
    • Cantaloupe – $0.99
    • SimplyNature Organic Spring Mix 16 oz – $3.49
  • Meat Specials: 
    • Parkview Cheddar Bratwursts 19 oz – $1.99
    • Fresh Pork Butt Roast – $1.49/lb
    • Fresh Chicken Drumsticks – $0.69/lb
  • Crofton Insulated Pump Pot ($14.99) – We’ve had a sprinkling of chilly days up here in the Mitten State and I can tell that fall is a coming. I totally want this for portable hot beverages for upcoming soccer games! Heck I think I may just want this to keep a pot of coffee with me at all times, ha!
  • Ambiano Electric Digital Pressure Cooker ($39.99) – I want this SO BAD! Most of you already know about my obsession with my Instant Pot, so this probably won’t make it in to my cart, because I can’t justify having TWO pressure cookers (SAD!!!). I wanted to point this out though, because this is an EXCELLENT price for a 6 quart pressure cooker…much lower than the name brand. My advice is to give it a try, because cooking under pressure is amazing! ALDI is great at standing behind their products, so if it doesn’t live up to what it says, save your receipt and take it back to the store. If any fellow nerds try it out, I’d love to hear about it!
  • Happy Farms Preferred Cracker Cuts 10 oz ($3.29) – I have passion for cheese and these cracker cuts come ready to go and in flavors I love (white and yellow extra sharp and gouda!)
  • Mama Cozzi’s Breadsticks ($3.69) – This looks like heaven! Found in the cooler section, these come in Italian or Cheesy variety. Bake them up and serve them with the included garlic butter (I think?) dipping sauce and marinara!
  • PB Crave Peanut Butter 16 oz ($4.99) – Even though we have 600 open jars of peanut butter at home, I just HAD to pick up one of these on my last shopping trip (they were out early yeah!) Comes in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Banana flavors. I’ll report back my findings!
  • Barissimo Organic Cold Brew Coffee Jar 9.5 oz ($1.99) – Barissimo Cold Brew is BACK and in this ready-to-drink, ORGANIC format! I’m totally trying this out because I love Barissimo Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate SO MUCH!
  • PurAqua Purified Drinking Water ($1.99) – Stock up price on bottled water! Only $0.08 per 16.9 oz bottle! (Deal goes through 9/5/17)
  • Belmont Super Premium Ice Cream Pints ($1.79) – Think “Ben & Jerry’s” type ice cream. Delicious flavors like Brookie Dough, Thank You Cherry Much! and Make Fudge Not War, will be easy on your wallet this week at only $1.79!!! (Deal goes through 9/5/17)
  • Broken Clouds Pinot Noir ($12.99) – Voted 2017 Product of the Year! Grab a bottle to boo-hoo/woo-hoo the kids going back to school!
  • 8″ Garden Mums ($2.99)– Comes in assorted colors, and a great way to dress up your porch for fall…great price at only $2.99!

  1. i bought the pressure cooker already own a Cuisinart Six quart. For the price I had to buy it. Will let you know how it goes…

  2. I bought the pressure cooker last time it was available and I love it! Be aware that it doesn’t have a slow-cooker function, though, like your Instant Pot does, so it’s “just” a pressure cooker, rice cooker, etc. Love mine, use it all the time.
