Did you notice there are no Meat Specials starting this Wednesday? I think there’s only one kind of meat everyone is going to be buying this week, and that’s a big, beautiful bird! ALDI has you covered. From 11/19 – 11/22, you can buy a frozen Whole Butterball Turkey for only $0.99/lb. Also advertised are a a bunch of different hams, but you’re going to have to look elsewhere for ham advice, because I could care less about the stuff! Ha!

So what fun goodies are we going to see in the ALDI Finds aisle? More to get you ready for Christmas!

  • Present More For Less features different toys for gift giving, including some biggies, like a doll house and outdoor playhouse.
  • Light Up The Room or light up the house with assorted lights and decorations for indoor and outdoors.
  • Set Out To Save has me scratching my head. There are 4 items: Flameless candles, stepstool, totes, and a travel mug. I don’t know how these relate, but should be cool nonetheless.
  • If you haven’t gotten your cozy items in the past few weeks, there will be more Dreamy Deals coming. More ladies, mens, and kids sleepwear and socks.
  • Finally, put the finishing touches on your holiday home with these cute Christmas Items. My fave are those PILLOWS!

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! 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!

I’m also on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.…phew!

ALDI Nerd Confession Time: I put my Christmas Tree up already! I usually wait for Thanksgiving, but I was just too excited!

    • Celery – $0.69
    • SimplyNature Organic Spring Mix, 16 oz – $3.79
    • Michigan Yellow Onions, 3 lbs – $0.69
    • Sweet Potatoes, 3 lbs – $0.99

    • Butterball Whole Turkey, 10-22 lbs (frozen) – $0.99/lb (limit 2; valid 11/19-11/22)
  • Huntington Home Holiday Pillow ($4.99) – These 17″ square pillows are totally my style! Going to grab a few to throw on my couches this Christmas season! (I’m currently set on blankets, but they also have matching throws (50″ x 60″) this week for $4.99 also!)
  • Source Liquid Hand Soap ($0.75) – I think I’m a teensy bit obsessed with hand soap, and at these prices, I can totally indulge! Winter scents out now: Candy Cane, Cranberry, and Glazed Pear.
  • Benton’s Gingerbread House ($6.99) – This kit has everything you need to make a sweet little Gingerbread House! For $7 a pop, I can get one for each of the kids and not break the bank!
  • Benton’s Lunch Buddies Holiday Fruit Snacks, 28 ct ($3.99) and Benton’s Snowman Grahams Snack Packs, 6 ct ($1.99) – I love making the kid’s lunches a little extra special with holiday themed snacks. These make it super easy to do also. The Graham Packs boast whole grains on the front, and the fruit snacks are naturally flavored.
  • Mama Cozzi’s 16″ Extreme Bacon Deli Pizza ($6.49) – Two words. Ron. Swanson.
  • Happy Farms Preferred Gourmet Cheese Spread ($2.69) – I thought FOR SURE that I had written a review on this, but apparently I didn’t! I must have made a post in The ALDI Nerd Facebook Group, back in it’s infancy. Any way, this stuff is FAB! It’s so fluffy and cheddar-y (I got the Sharp Cheddar variety, you see). Now I find out there is also a Peppercorn Parmesan and Garlic & Herb one to try! Hooray!
  • Clancy’s Dipped Peppermint Pretzel Stars ($1.99) – Never had them, but these are right up my alley. Just ran out of a bag similar to these from Costco. Now I don’t have to make an extra trip! These would be great to give to a bus driver, teacher, instructor!
  • Clancy’s Dark Drizzled Kettlecorn ($1.79) – Seriously ALDI? I hope you have mumus and yoga pants on sale for January, because I don’t think my jeans are gonna fit after December! Ha! Yeah, so these look delish too and would be another great item to gift!
  • Baker’s Corner Layered Baking Jar Mix ($4.99) – Comes in 4 varieties: Chocolate Chip, Gingerbread, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, and Triple Chocolate Chip. Going to get some of these for gift also!
  • Benton’s Candy Cane Cremes ($1.99) – Think Pepperminty Oreo. Totally yummy. Wish they came in Double Stuffed!
  • Happy Farms Deli Style Cheese Ball, 10 oz ($2.49) – Great to serve at a party, or eat on your own (I have one I’m working on in my fridge now!) Haven’t had the Port Wine flavor yet, but I’m all about the Sharp Cheddar.
  • Specially Selected Mini Cream Puffs or Eclairs ($5.29)We served these up last year on New Year’s Eve and they were a hit! Just set on the counter to thaw and you have the perfect bite-sized dessert to serve your guests. Or take a few out at a time for a treat for yourself!
  • SimplyNature Organic Apple Walnut Granola ($3.49) and SimplyNature Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, 32 oz ($2.99) – Staples in the ALDI Nerd Home. Plain for me, and Vanilla for the kids, with a sprinkle of this awesome granola on top!
  • NeverAny! Breakfast Chicken Sausage, 8 oz ($2.99)These little guys are SO GOOD and I don’t feel bad about eating a few because they are much lower in fat than traditional pork sausage…bonus!!
