Good Sunday to you fellow Nerds!

It’s that time again, where I blog in to the wee hours of the night, to let you in on all the fun stuff ALDI is going to have this week! (I’m not complaining…I love it!!)

So ALDI Nerd, what ARE we going to see in the ALDI Finds this week?

  • Out with the old, and Refresh Your Home in to something new! Check out all the paints and tools to turn trash in to treasures!
  • When you’re all done with your home Pinterest projects, be sure to go Decorate & Save. Lots of home goods available this week, like photo frames, wall clocks, candles, shelving, and other decorative accents to put the finishing touches on all your rooms.
  • Let’s get ORGANIZED with Fridge & Pantry Finds! There are some super-cute mug/bowl sets, that I may just have to pick up too.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out an ALDI Nerd Special Feature from the other week: ALDI vs Kroger vs Meijer: Price Tag SHOWDOWN! I highlight 50 grocery items I commonly purchase at ALDI and compare equivalent items from Meijer and Kroger to see which store’s prices REIGN SUPREME!

Don’t forget to follow The ALDI Nerd on Facebook too! Once we reach 2,500 fans (we just hit 2,000!!!) I’ll be hosting a giveaway! You can also unite with fellow ALDI Nerds on The ALDI Nerd Facebook Group. Brag about your latest finds, great/not-so-great products you’ve tried, and make new ALDI loving friends!

The show must go on!
