Who is The ALDI Nerd?

My name is Diane and I’m a stay-at-home mom to three awesome kiddos.  I used to stop in and shop at ALDI occasionally, but it wasn’t feasible to do all the time with it being far from my home. A couple of years ago, we relocated and our new home is much closer to an ALDI. Since then, my love for this German market really began to grow.

I started off sharing with my mom friends about new products that I tried or an amazing price I’d find on something. After a while, I decided to start a small Facebook group (about 15 or so members) for those friends who wanted to stay in the ALDI loop. We would plan “field trips” and meet at our local store and shop together. I’d show them stuff like my favorite products or how to use the carts.

The group had been around for about 6 months, when I was talking with a friend and she asked, “Have you ever thought of starting a blog?”

And the rest, they say, is history!

My mission is to bring you the latest deals, honest product reviews, and recipes you can make using ALDI items. I want YOU to love ALDI as much as I do, and discover what a hidden gem it is!

Thanks for reading!
