ALDI Baking Supplies - I Saved $4

I  have been doing a lot of baking with my boys, which meant that we were low on baking supplies. This of course meant a trip to ALDI, but I encountered two problems. First of all, ALDI had no cocoa! I don't know why this always happens when I run out, but I think I need to learn to pick up the ALDI cocoa powder, when I see it in stock, and not when I need it.

Second, the sugar has now changed to 4 lbs instead of 5 lbs, and the price is the same. Thankfully, I discovered this before I went to check out, because an ALDI reader brought this to my attention a few weeks ago. Back then my ALDI store was still selling 5 lb bags of sugar, but no more. So, if you are in need of sugar, make sure to pick it up at Target this week for $2.75 for 5 lbs. The 4 lbs sugar is $2.88 at my South Florida ALDI store, which takes it off my bargain list.

To make up for the two baking supplies issues, I was excited to see that my ALDI had eggs at $1.19 this week. If I could have fit more under the stroller, I would have picked up four packages of eggs. Space was limited though, but thankfully all eggs made it home safely.

How did you do at ALDI this week? Is your ALDI now selling 4 lbs sugar or 5 lbs sugar, and is the price the same?

  1. Oh my goodness that is some expensive sugar! Ours have always been 4lb bags, but they are like $2.29? I think. They've gone up recently, but not $4 oh my!
