The holidays are approaching at lightning speed…can you feel it?? Sometimes I feel like my brain (and body) are being pulled in a million different directions. The last thing I want to worry about is what I’m serving up for dinner. ALDI has got me covered though with some amazing finds this week!

What will we be seeing?

  • Baby it’s cold outside, so get Comfy & Cozy at night with these bedroom finds: Pillows, air mattresses, bedding sets, sheet sets, and more!
  • Are you, or do you have a world traveler in your life? Grab them some On-the-Go Goodies! Featured this week are assorted luggage for adults and children, travel pillows, and travel accessories.
  • Sweatpants, socks, and underwear, OH MY! Everyday Essentials will keep YOUR essentials covered and cozy!
  • What is it they say? A place for everything and everything in its place? You can do just that with this week’s Perfectly Placed Deals.  Get it together with assorted organizers, shelving, and lighting for any room in the house.
  • Give your home a little taste of fall with Savings That Sparkle. My faves? I’m getting a Mason Jar Candle and a Cinnamon Broom!
  • A lot of the holiday season is spent in the kitchen, so make sure you grab some of these Cooking Essentials and be whipping, roasting, and basting in style!

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

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks:

    • California Red Grapes – $0.99/lb
    • Pomegranates – $0.69
    • Cabbage – $0.79
    • Sweet Potatoes, 3 lb bag – $0.99
    • Wisconsin Cranberries, 12 oz – $0.89
  • Meat Specials:
  • Royal Class or Serra Men’s or Ladies’ Fleece Lined Sweatshirt ($12.99) and Royal Class or Serra Men’s or Ladies’ Sweat/Lounge Pants ($9.99)Is it just me, or is it hard to find a good old fashioned sweatsuit these days? Let’s just say my current lounge wear needs some serious updating. My stuff is so old, I need something that won’t be totally embarrassing to be seen in if a neighbor pops over to borrow a cup of milk. I think these sweatshirts and lounge pants are going to fit the bill! They come in basic black and baby blue and are going to keep me comfy and cozy while momming all winter long!
  • Lily & Dan 6 Pack Socks ($3.99-$4.99) – Are your kids feet growing like crazy? I just went and bought new shoes for the boy. He was wearing a 13.5 toddler in the Spring and when we went shoe shopping the other week, he was fitting in to a 2.5-3 Kids! Time to update the socks now too! Available in Boys, Girls, and Toddler.
  • Huntington Home 12.5 oz Mason Jar Candle ($4.99) – My TimberWick Wood Wick Candle is almost gone! Oh no!! Luckily, we will be seeing these mason jar candles this week in stores in yummy fall scents like Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cider Donut, and Autumn Warmth.  I love the looks of these, and I can’t wait to smell the smells…
  • Huntington Home 36″ Cinnamon Broom ($3.49) – I love this simple looking home decor item, and not only does it look cool, it is supposed to give off a nice cinnamon aroma in the room you hang it in…score!!!
  • Crofton Digital Meat Thermometer ($9.99) – I have been unlucky in the meat thermometer department. I usually buy those little stick ones with the tiny screen and they break in no time. This one looks sturdier and will definitely be on my shopping list.
  • Friendly Farms Delightfully Pure Creamer, 16 oz ($1.79)Add all the deliciousness to your morning cuppa without all the hard to pronounce ingredients! New flavors available this week: Hazelnut and Pumpkin Spice!
  • Barissimo Coffee, 12 oz ($3.79)Barissimo is all I drink now! And this week, we are going to see Caramel Macchiato and Crème Brulee….oooh la la!! Buy this for yourself, or for a holiday gift! (Would be great for teacher or secret santa pal!)
  • Baker’s Corner Scone Mix ($1.99) – Scones are my guilty little pleasure that I pick up at the bakery when the kids are in school because mama doesn’t always like to share, ha! These mixes come in Pumpkin or Cranberry Orange and I think I may even add a small handful of chocolate morsels to kick them up a notch!
  • Clancy’s Holiday Pretzel Tubs, 24 oz ($3.49) – Good old Clancy’s Pretzels you know and love in fun holiday shapes! Grab a tub for lunches, school parties, or family holiday get-togethers.
  • Mama Cozzi’s Philly Cheesesteak Deli Pizza ($8.49) – Have you ever had an ALDI Take & Bake Pizza before? If not, you gotta give them a try! ALDI will carry your usual suspects every day (cheese, pepperoni, etc) but now and then they have a fancy one in the mix like this amazing breakfast pizza. This week: Philly Cheesesteak? Yes, please!
  • Season’s Choice Broccoli or Cauliflower Bake, 24 oz ($3.69) – Veggies…hot gooey cheese…sounds like my kids are eating their vegetables this week!
  • Specially Selected Flatbread ($3.99) – I’m a stay-at-home mom, and usually end up cooking nothing too super adventurous for the simple fact that I’m tired of hearing, “I don’t wanna eat that, Mom!!!” This gem is going to be just. for. me! Pear Blue Cheese and Goat Cheese & Plum Sauce Flatbreads are going to be my mommy-only indulgence!
  • Happy Farms Preferred Cranberry White Cheddar, 8 oz ($2.99) – Perfect for setting out on a cheese platter at party, or snacking on yourself. This is so delicious and unique!
  • Priano Shredded Parmesan Cheese, 5 oz ($1.99) – We regularly buy this in the ALDI Nerd household. This is great for making Chicken Caesar Salads. Get for a healthy lunch/easy dinner:
    • This Priano Shredded Parm
    • 3 pack of Romaine
    • LunchMate precooked chicken
    • Tuscan Garden Caesar Croutons,
    • Bottle of Tuscan Garden Caesar Dressing (which is only $0.89 a bottle now!!!)
  • Mama Cozzi’s Texas Toast ($1.59) – Seriously amazing…I swear this is made by the “name brand company”. I bought the Garlic variety the other week and sampled it by itself (yum!) and used it to make Jeffrey’s French Onion Chicken in my Instant Pot. Holy WOW!
