It’s SUNDAY! Are ya’ll ready for this? (Yes, I just totally went Jock Jams on you!)

This week there are FIVE different categories of ALDI Finds! What exactly will we be seeing?

  • Hunt no further for Outdoor Savings! Hunting season will be soon upon us, and ALDI is decking their magical middle aisle with pop-up blinds, trail cameras, insulated bottles, and assorted outdoor wear to keep you cozy while waiting for that 12 point buck!
  • There are going to be too many cooks in the kitchen when they see all these great Kitchen Deals! Panini presses, kitchen mats, multi-cookers, frying pans, and more to make meal prep a breeze.
  • Dream on, dream away…I think I’m gonna have to have hubby stay….AWAY…from all the Dream Garage items this week! (Just kidding of course!) If your garage is feeling less than dreamy, this wide assortment of shelving, tools, and storage, may be exactly what you need to get organized.
  • The maples are already starting to drop leaves in the yard, and if you Love Your Lawn you’ll want to get some of these tools to keep it so fresh and so clean clean.
  • And last but not, least, boost your kiddo’s Brain Power with these fun books and learning activities!

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 are getting so close!!) 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!

  • Lily & Dan Children’s Insulated Rain Boots ($11.99) – I bought the L&D non-insulated rain boots a few months back. My kiddo wears them ALL THE TIME and they are holding up great! I want to see how insulated these actually are in person, and see if they’d make a good boot for the winter time!
  • Crofton Meatloaf Pan ($6.99) – Love me some meatloaf, but don’t love the big puddle o’grease that collects in my loaf pan when I bake it. This pan measures 11.4″ x 5.7″ x 3.1″, is nonstick, and comes with an insert to drain the fat away from your meatloaf and prevent overcooking. Heck yeah!
  • Gardenline Leaf Collector ($4.99) – While I LOVE all the AMAZING trees in our yard…wow do they drop a TON of leaves! We are raking here all fall at the ALDI Nerd home! I’m going to grab some of these leaf collectors, which are essentially giant claws you put on your hands to scoop up leaves. Heck they even might get the kids more interested in cleaning up the yard this year!
  • Italian INVASION! – So not one product, but notice a LOT of the foodie type ALDI Finds below are a wonderful assortment of new meats, cheese, pastas, sauces, and other Italian favorites. I’m not sure which ones I’m buying quite yet, but know we will be getting our “mangia” on next week.

    1. I think it depends on where you live. If you live in a market with a Sunday ad (like mine) you will probably see them today. Some markets have a Wednesday ad which you’ll see the boots in stores by Wednesday. Now the meat specials always start on the date listed.
