Aldi Plants - I Saved $17 - Link Up At The Aldi Savings Linky

I was very excited about getting to Aldi this week, and for once it was not about the produce prices. I wanted to pick up the $1.99 plants, because my husband brought home a new-to-us flower stand the other day. I made sure that every pot had at least two stems in, so that I can separate them into two pots. 

The South Florida weather is very tricky and it can go from 80 degrees to 60 overnight, but my tomato plants are growing nicely already. I had planted pepper plants, lettuce and more, but our neighbors rabbit was let loose and enjoyed a very nice salad. Guess who finally caught it? Yes, that would be me! There was no way I was going to let the rabbit destroy my entire vegetable garden, so I caught it, brought it back and helped fix the cage, so I would get no new visitors.

I would love to hear how you did on your grocery shopping this week. You can link up below, and you can also link up at the Weekly Savings Linky at Frugality Is Free, where I post all of my shopping for the week.

Savings are calculated compared to the lowest price at my regular grocery stores. Take a look at the Aldi price list and price comparison list with Publix, Target, Winn-Dixie and Walmart.


  1. You always do such a wonderful job and find some great stuff! I can't to go to Aldi tomorrow and get some fruit with the deal going on up here.

  2. What a pretty plant stand! I think I went a little bit overboard on the apples this week. LOL.
