What I Get At Aldi

I am just now jumping onto the Aldi train, but let me tell you I sure am glad I did!

I had been seeing my friends’ posts about it and I was always a little skeptical. To be honest, it seemed like one of the “cheap” grocery stores and I wasn’t sure it would have good, quality stuff.

Boy, was I wrong.

Since the girls have started school, I make one day a week my grocery shopping day. I plan out all of our meals on Sunday and usually do my grocery shopping on Wednesday.

My Aldi obsession all started with this lady. I found this meal plan and made almost everything on it.

I started with the Italian Beef. Then, the Snap Crackle Pop Chicken and then the leftover Italian Beef & Black Bean quesadillas.

Since then, I have moved the majority of my shopping over there and here’s some of my favorite things I have discovered there:


  • Seedtastic is my everyday bread, I have one in the fridge and one in the freezer at all times.

  • Baguette
  • Plain Bagels
  • Brownies (I used to make the Raspberry Brownie Bites for Valentine’s Day)


  • Grapefruit
  • Apples
  • Oranges (Cuties)
  • Kiwi
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Strawberries (Which were LOCAL, btw! Plant City strawberries! What?)
  • Caesar salad mix
  • Tomatoes
