On Wednesdays we shop at Aldi.
I wanted to blog about something really on-brand for me, and if you follow me on social media you know I’m an Aldi Queen. I grew up going to Aldi in the ‘90s with my grandparents and it was a totally different beast—juice barrels and dry packaged donuts as far as the eye could see. These days Aldi is a lot sleeker and more organized, and they have definitely stepped up their product selection. One of my favorite things about Aldi is Aldi Finds, which is just a rotating selection of seasonal items. I thought this week I would put together a list of the best current Aldi finds for my neglected blog.
By the way, my store re-stocks on Wednesdays. Some do on Sundays. Aldi is kind enough to share what’s new in their ads a week ahead of time, so if there is something you really want it’s easiest to plan that way. Sometimes half of the fun is going in and seeing what you can find. Here are my favorite Aldi finds from this week.
Huntington Home Painted Candle, $7
I went for the candles today. And groceries, but mostly the candles. Aldi has amazing candles at such a great price. I honestly hoped these would be a little bigger, but they’re still great. There are four colors/scents. I got the orange and brown ones, Pumpkin Praline and Cedar Oakwood.
Crofton Cheese Grater, $7
I also got a cheese grater. Nothing super exciting, but I’m usually satisfied with the value-to-price ratio from the Crofton products at Aldi.
2″ Potted Succulent, $4
I didn’t see these at my Aldi, sadly. The pots come in four colors (green, purple, white or black), but I especially wanted this black one. I love anything with a celestial pattern and little succulents are perfect for decorating the bathroom and kitchen.
Huntington Home Animal Storage Basket, $30
I wanted to get one of these adorable fox storage baskets to keep Atlas’s toys in, but they were already gone at my Aldi by 9:30 AM. Bummer. There were some white rabbit ones left, but I didn’t love those as much. $30
Whole & Simple Protein Bowls, $3
I try not to do frozen lunches too often, but hey. I can only make so many homemade meals these days, guys. Super pleasantly surprised with the flavors they’ve had of these. I got this one and a cilantro lime one today. I make them in the oven—it takes 40 minutes but it tastes so much better than microwaving.
What’s your favorite Aldi find ever? Do you know of a secret Aldi that has all the best goods? Do you want me to post what I’m looking forward to next Wednesday? Let’s talk, people.
