Aldi Grocery Haul + {Not Lazy} Menu Monday

I make myself shop at Aldi about once a month. I’d much rather stroll the calm and aesthetically pleasing aisles of my favorite grocery store (Ingles), but I find Aldi’s low prices on produce and canned goods too good to resist. My grocery budget is set at $75/week – watch the video below to see what I bought and to find out if stayed in my budget!


I’m really trying to not be lazy with my weeknight meals – and menu planning always helps with that. Last week I planned some new recipes and things that we don’t usually eat, and I was so pleased with the way our suppers tasted! I sat down with my Pinterest recipes and my cookbooks again this week and worked to plan a menu that I’ll be excited to fix.

  1. I love these videos Whitney. We do have an Aldi’s here and I need to take advantage of them more. Like you, I am just more comfortable in my own favorite grocery store. When hubby retires I am going to have to really re think my grocery shopping as we will not have as much expendable income.


  2. My sister shops at Aldi and loves it. We don’t have one in Mississippi, but I always enjoy seeing your grocery hauls regardless. Great deal on the canned veggies and blocks of cheese. I also love that you picked up fruit snacks 🙂 I love those things. Thanks to you – I’m getting better at knowing the sales rotations at my favorite stores so that I can buy staples only when they go on sale.


    1. Ha, thanks – I was kind of embarrassed to admit that we eat fruit snacks with no children in the house. 🙂 I’m so proud of your sale cycle knowledge! One reason I shop at Aldi at the end of the month is that grocery stores don’t put as much on sale that week. The first 3 weeks of the month are much better for sales.
