ALDI Chicken and Egg Sale



This week ALDI has a great sale on chicken and egg, and I'll probably return to stock up on eggs later on this week, in preparation of the kids being out of school. With a family of six, egg sandwiches fr the family uses up half a dozen of eggs and almost an entire loaf of bread.

I had my two little ones with me in the store today, which always leaves me frazzled, but I managed to get out of the store with what I needed.

#ALDI Thanksgiving Deals - Great Prices on Specialty Foods

I spent a lot more than usual at ALDI today, but I am still thankful to get thanksgiving shopping done at ALDI, because it is so easy to get in and out, and I don't have to bother with organizing coupons. Instead of worrying about the total at checkout, I could simply put all of my family's holiday favorites in the grocery cart and still be way under what I would have been, if I had shopped elsewhere. The best part is that ALDI has become really good at expanding their luxury items such as cheese and crackers, which means that we can still pick up a bunch of specialty food without spending big bucks.

#ALDI Thanksgiving Deals - Great Prices on Luury

As an extra bonus I found two beautiful blue serving platters on clearance at $2 each. The regular price was $7.99, and I've been looking at them for a while. At $2 clearance it was the perfect price, and the color is perfect for our beachy color theme throughout the house.

ALDI November Deals - Great Prices on Apples and Pears

Today is a great week at ALDI for our family, because we go through a lot of fruit, and ALDI has apples and pears on sale. So we doubled up, and we might just go back on Tuesday for more.

#ALDI #Halloween #Clearance #Deals

With four kids in the family, including three big, fast growing boys, finding clearance deals on food is a great way to help stay on budget. Right now ALDI has a lot of Halloween/fall clearance going on, most of it at 50 percent off.

I found everything from fall decor, to Halloween decorations, pumpkin flavored foods, chocolate covered pretzels, sprinkles and Halloween candy and snacks.

Our kids get lunch at school, but I always have a snack of some sort waiting for them in the morning. I find individually wrapped snacks on sale and clearance, or bag them in small snack bags myself. It's amazing how fast my stock of snacks can run on low. Sometimes they choose which snacks they get, other times I surprise them.

This morning I surprised the with Bats and Webs potato snacks from ALDI.

These were Halloween clearance at ALDI for $0.59 per 3.5 oz bag, and it looks like there's enough in one bag for 2-3 days of snacks.




Did you find any great clearance deals at ALDI lately?

ALDI Shopping = Stress Saver - Chicken Sale + Apple Price Drop & More



When there isn't enough hours in the week, I am so thankful for ALDI. It has just been crazy around here, and with four kids there just isn't much time in the day to do grocery planning, circular browsing and coupon clipping.
