¡Hola Nerds!

It’s been another busy week filled with the usual #momstuff! Homework, sports, cleaning, school events, sickness (back to school germies woo-hoo lol), and I’m pooped, but never too pooped to bring you some ALDI AWESOMENESS!

Are you curious what we are going to see this week?

  • Like I said, the Back to School Germies are back in full swing, so you are going to want to check out these Squeaky Clean Deals. Brooms, mops, vacuums, and other cleaning supplies are in stores to help avoid the plague and stay healthy!
  • We saw some grown-up bathroom items the other week, now it’s time for the kids! Keep them organized with all the items in the Kid’s Bed & Bath section this week.
  • Don’t crash in to me…but Fall into Savings! Fun, fall-themed decor to get you in the spirit, whether you’re having an insanely hot September or not!
  • Pump up the volume in the kitchen and Cook up the Savings! This week we are seeing some cast iron cookware at ALDI along with some griddles and soup mug!

Also new: ALDI is now accepting Contactless Payment! This includes Samsung Pay, Android Pay, and Apple Pay!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out an ALDI Nerd Special Feature: 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! We have reached over 2,500 fans, so as promised,  I’ll be hosting a giveaway! Stay tuned this week for details on how to enter!

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!

¡Vamos!

    • Kirkwood Fresh Whole Chicken – $0.95/lb
  • Huntington Home TimberWick Wooden Wick Candle ($5.99) – I can only hope these candles smell as beautiful as they look! These have a natural wooden wick which gives off the sound of a crackling fire when it burns and provides a warm glow, according to the ALDI website. They come in 4 scents (Fireside, Pumpkin Butter, Vanilla Bean, and Cinnamon Chai) and sound absolutely delightful.
  • Happy Farms Preferred Cheddar, 7 oz  ($3.49) – Straight up? I’m ALWAYS down for trying unique flavored cheeses! This week you’ll find, Golden Maple, Salted Caramel, and Apple Cinnamon. Oh my! Which one will I choose?
  • Bakehouse Creations Cookie Dough ($2.49) – Another must try for me. I’m especially looking forward to getting a pack of the Apple Oatmeal cookies, but there’s also a Pumpkin Cream Cheese variety for all my gourd loving Nerds.
  • SimplyNature Organic Chili Mix ($0.99) – Available in in Mild, Spicy, and White Chicken, chili happens a lot here in the ALDI Nerd household when the temps start to drop. I’ll be grabbing a Mild and White Chicken to start.
  • Stonemill Slow Cooker Seasoning Packet ($0.79) – This week you’ll be able to snag seasonings for BBQ Pulled Pork, Hearty Beef Stew, and Savory Pot Roast. Do I dust off my slow cooker, or try to make these bad boys in my Instant Pot?
  • Chef’s Cupboard Family Size Tomato Soup, 26 oz  ($1.19) – Nothing new and exciting, but wanted to point out that my die-hard Campbell’s Tomato Soup loving husband, admits he likes these and says these Chef Cupboard ones are “pretty good”.
  • Sesame Street 100% Juice Boxes, 8 ct ( $1.89) – So I can’t get away with packing these in the big kid’s lunchboxes, but my youngest loves these! They are the perfect size for toddlers/preschoolers at only 4.23oz per juice box and they come in yummy flavors with their favorite characters on them! (Berry with Bert & Ernie, Apple with Big Bird, and Fruit Punch with Elmo).
  • Source Radiance Ultra Dish Liquid and Liquid Hand Soap – ALDI soaps are a staple in our bathroom! For a limited time you can get dish liquid for $1.89 or 7.5 oz pump hand soaps for $0.75 in fun fall scents (Apple Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spice!)
