I don’t know about where you are, but it’s frickin’ freezing here Mr. Bigglesworth!! *cry* Today was the first REALLY cold day we had of the season up here in Michigan, and every year I swear I’m going to move somewhere warmer. And I know it’s only going to get colder, darker, and snowier…eeep! At least I’ll have all these ALDI goodies to keep me cozy!

What’s on the menu this week?

  • Thanksgiving Prep is going to be a breeze (hopefully a warm one, ha!) with the fun stuff in Prepped & Plated, Host More For Less, and Sprinkle On The Savings. Tons of cookware, bakeware, serveware, tables, chairs, place settings…the list goes on. One that pops out at me? A batter dispenser for those holiday morning pancakes…nom nom!
  • More cozy goodness in Bundles of Bargains. Boots, tights, gloves, and jackets for men, women, and children!

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!

Stuff I’m Totally Buying This Week:

  • Produce Picks:

    • Wisconsin Russet Potatoes, 10 lbs – $1.29
    • Michigan Yellow Onions, 3 lb – $0.69
    • SimplyNature Organic Spring Mix, 16 oz – $3.79
    • Wisconsin Ocean Spray Cranberries, 12 oz – $0.89
    • Celery – $0.69
  • Meat Specials:
    • Butterball Whole Turkey, 10-22 lb (frozen) – $0.99 (limit 2, while supplies last, regularly $1.29/lb)
    • Honeysuckle White Bone-In Turkey Breast (frozen) – $1.39/lb
    • Honeysuckle White Fresh Whole Turkey – $1.19/lb  (starts Wednesday, November 15)
  • liveGfree Gluten Free Cornbread Mix ($2.29)I was just actually getting ready to write a blog post on this stuff (coming soon!) The perfect side for a big pot of chili. Also available in Cheddar Biscuit.
  • Happy Farms Preferred Cranberry White Cheddar Cheese, 8 oz ($2.99) – A very unique, delicious cheese, but not “too out there” a la caramel apple cheddar.
  • Specially Selected Panino Tray, 18 oz ($11.99) – I recently had these at a party and my were they delish! Impress your guests with these ready made rolls of meat and cheese goodness.
  • Southern Grove California Golden Raisins, 15 oz ($2.79) – No different than the name-brand golden raisins…except the price! This is a great value! I like these much better than regular raisins, especially in Oatmeal Cookies and Instant Pot Oatmeal.
  • Baker’s Corner Morsels ($1.79) – Do you ever have trouble finding chocolate chips without allergens? Baker’s Corner Milk Chocolate Chips are yummy and are not made in peanut/tree nut facilities like other brands. (Please always check package for allergens before purchasing, as this information could change any time).
  • Countryside Creamery Butter Quarters, 16 oz  ($2.29) – Not the best price I have seen on butter at ALDI, but better than their everyday price of $2.99. This price is valid November 15-18 and there’s a limit of 6 packages.
  • Crofton 4-Cup Batter Dispenser or 5 Cup Flour Sifter ($4.99) – I’m a naughty baker and never sift my flour when the recipe calls for it, however, this batter dispenser is looking like something I need to add to my Christmas list.  It looks like I can throw it in the dishwasher and use it to dispense pancakes and muffins…score!
  • Easy Home 6″ Folding Table With Wheels ($34.99) – 5 ft Easy Home Tables I don’t need ANOTHER table, but we bought one of the earlier this year, and so far has been serving us well!
  • Ambiano 3.5 Quart Casserole Slow Cooker ($19.99) – This slow cooker is so pretty. I’m usually the one to bring some sort of casserole to Thanksgiving (green bean or otherwise) and this would be great for that all while keeping it nice and hot.
  • Mama Cozzi’s Stuffed Crust Pizza ($5.89) – It is my mission in life, to try anything and everything stuffed with cheese. This is no exception. Going to grab one of these for an easy dinner this week.
