What’s up Nerds??

Before I get started with all the goodies this week…I want to give a big shout out to Patricia White who is the winner of the “2,500 Likes Giveaway”! She was chosen at random to win a $25 ALDI Gift Card!! Congratulations, Patricia!

There’s a whole lotta ALDI Finds this week! What exactly will we be seeing?

  • These decorations are so good, it’s SCARY GOOD SAVINGS! Inflatables, yard stakes, lanterns, wreaths, webs, and more! Let’s get spooky!
  • Don’t go making any Business Deals until you’ve popped in to ALDI to furnish your home office. You can pick up a new office chair, printer, paper shredder, laminator, and other office needs.
  • I am always dishing out dinner, but ALDI is Dishing Out Deals to help you make your dinner! Slow cookers, skillets, knives, cutting boards, and even a convection oven are featured this week!
  • Baby, baby, baby, we are going to see some of the Best Baby Buys for a limited time, including a Color Changing LED Showerhead?! If that doesn’t make bath time fun, I don’t know WHAT will!
  • Fall in to Stylized Savings ladies with riding boots, socks, camis, umbrellas and my fave…new shopping bags!!
  • Don’t let the clutter overwhelm you! Simplify and Save with an assortment of home organization items like baskets, boxes, racks, and shelves.

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: This week I’m picking up:

    • California Red Grapes – $0.99/lb
    • Michigan Acorn, Butternut, or Spaghetti Squash – $0.99 each
    • Michigan Pumpkins – $2.49
    • Washington Honeycrisp Apples, 2 lb bag – $1.99
  • Meat Specials: I’m totally excited about:
    • SimplyNature Fresh Organic Family Pack Grass Fed 85/15 Ground Beef – Did ya see this? $4.49 a freakin pound!!! That is SERIOUSLY an amazing price! I see this for typically $5.29/lb every day at ALDI (still a great price compared to other places). Get this deal starting Wednesday, October 11!
  • Huntington Home Halloween Flameless Candle Lantern ($5.99) – I love the ambiance of candles, but with little ones in the house, I have to be careful about when and where I burn them…usually in a place out of reach and out of reach from random toys/objects that could possibly be flying through the air at any given time. This lantern from Huntington Home comes in three super-cute & spooky cutout designs and has colored glass windows. Each set includes a flickering, battery operated candle (includes 2 AA batteries), that RUNS ON A TIMER. This is amazing I won’t even have to remember to turn on my lantern, it will just automatically start glowing as night begins to fall….oooOOOooooOOOoooo!
  • Pembrook 13″ Advanced Thermal Laminator ($19.99) – While I won’t be buying this particular laminator (I bought this Easy Home Laminator back in March), I would highly recommend picking one up because having one has come in handy many times. I’ve used it to preserve school awards, drawings, the lunch menu (which comes out only twice a school year!), calendars, bookmarks, homemade party decorations, and so much more. It is also great for making activity sheets for the kids. Print out letter/number tracing sheets or other activity worksheets from online, and laminate them. Your kiddos can reuse them multiple times using a dry erase marker!
  • Nuby Bath Toys ($3.99) – Assorted colors and styles available! Choose from Bath Squirters, Stacking Cups, or what I absolutely need…a Bath Rinse Cup to help rinse the shampoo of the kiddo’s heads and keep it out of their eyes!
  • Foldable Shopping Bag ($1.29) – Being an avid ALDI shopper, I’m definitely a sucker for reusable shopping bags! These measure approximately 15″ x 17″ and are made from durable fabric in fun, funky patterns! When not in use, the bags folds into itself for easy peasy storage!
  • Dannon Danimals Orange Scream Smoothies ($1.99) – When it’s Halloween Season we always pick up this flavor of Danimal Smoothies for the kids! It comes in a 6 pack, and I bet will be lower price than any of your local stores! (My local Kroger is selling their 6 packs for $3.29 and my local Meijer at $2.99).
  • Happy Farms Preferred Specialty Shreds ($2.99) – If I wasn’t already an ALDI Nerd, I think I’d be known as the Cheese Nerd, cause I love me some fromage that’s for sure! These shreads are available in Gouda and Swiss & Gruyere, which actually was a 1st place winner at the World Dairy Competition! Blue ribbon cheese is something I gotta try!

  1. I bought the shopping bags yesterday, my store had everything for todays ad out already. Now I wish I had picked up more for Christmas gift extras. Do you know where you can do a return? They don’t seem to have any customer service? We didn’t like the Tikka Masala and I bought 2 jars of it.
