Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks: This week, ALL the Produce Picks are HOT!

    • Michigan Pumpkins – $2.49
    • Baby Peeled Carrots – $0.49/lb
    • California Peaches – $0.99/lb
    • Baby Bella Mushrooms, 8 oz – $0.89

    • Michigan Gala Apples, 3 lb bag – $1.49
  • Meat Specials: I’m totally excited about:
    • Fresh Family Pack Chicken Breasts – $1.69/lb (valid through 10/18 – 10-22)
  • Friendly Farms Coffee Creamer, 32 oz ($2.19)– Seasonal flavor alert: Frosted Sugar Cookie and Marshmallow Hot Chocolate. Do you really need any more reasons to buy?
  • Crofton Silicone Bakeware ($2.99) – Choose from a 9″ round, 9″x5″ loaf, 9″ square or 12 cup muffin pan. You can throw these bad boys in the dishwasher too. (My favorite kind of dish!)
  • Little Salad Bar Soup, 16 oz ($2.29) – I love little tubs of refrigerated soups like these! SO much better than canned, in my opinion. Get yours in Broccoli Cheese, Low-Fat Chicken Tortilla, or Loaded Potato.
  • SimplyNature Organic Seasonal Pasta Sauce, 24 oz ($2.99) – I usually stick with Marinara, but this week I’ll be venturing in to the world of Eggplant & Rosemary and Smoky Charred Tomato, Carrot & Onion.
  • Aunt Maple’s Pancake Mix, 16 oz ($2.49) – Bye bye boring old pancakes! Hello Pumpkin Spice and Banana Chocolate! Haven’t had a chance to look at the ingredients list yet, but a peek at the box says this mix can be used for WAFFLES and has natural flavors,  and no artificial preservatives or colors Hooray!!
  • Clancy’s Roasted Sweet Corn Popcorn, 7 oz ($1.79) – It’s BACK! This was such a hit last time, and my ALDI had it out early so I got THREE BAGS!
  • Specially Selected Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans, 9.5 oz ($2.99) – Two of my favorite things…together! This would make the perfect little secret mom treat, or a good gift for a teacher or other special person in your life!
  • Choceur Pumpkin Spice Pretzels, 7 oz ($1.79) – I’ve been a huge fan of these gluten-free pretzels for awhile now, it will be weird switching back to the gluten-filled ones! This pumpkin spice coating looks like something I can’t pass up though!
  • Mama Cozzi’s Toasted Ravioli, 16 oz ($2.99)I will be honest…if I remember correctly the last time I bought these, looking at the ingredients…these are SO not good for you….but man are they delicious! Dip in marinara as a special treat with a friend who won’t let you consumer the whole package.
  • SimplyNature Organic Seedtastic Bread ($3.99) – This is a delicious hearty bread that I love! If you’re not in to fluffy white bread, you’re going to love this too.
  • SimplyNature Organic Coconut Oil, 14 oz ($3.99) – The regular price of this is great ($4.49) but at $3.99, this is even better!
  • SimplyNature Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, 32 oz ($2.99) – A staple in our home. I eat plain, kids eat vanilla, and we love topping it with SimplyNature Apple Walnut Granola Cereal.

3 thoughts on “Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week 10/15 – 10/21”

  1. I just so happened to stroll into Aldi today and purchased the grapefruit seltzer water and googled it to see if anyone knew how much cheaper it is compared to Le Croix and stumbled upon your website… You have a new fan! I’m obsessed! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! It’s so helpful! Your site makes me even more excited to go back to Aldi! I just started a new job and Aldi is within walking distance. I will have to go back tomorrow and look for the candles you posted!

  2. Oh! I found bottles of kombucha tea at Aldi last week! I was amazed that Aldi had it. I bought a bottle at Target ($3.99) for nearly a dollar more than I did at Aldi ($2.99). People have gotten hip to the Aldi game because I went back to Aldi today and it was sold out!
