Shopping at ALDI – Two Week Haul and Menu Plan

How to plan and shop for two weeks of meals at Aldi via

It is time for another two-week grocery haul and menu plan! This time I decided to do most of my shopping at Aldi. Sometimes I can get amazing deals at the grocery store with sales and coupons, but I just didn’t have the time or energy to put all that together for two weeks at once! Aldi was a great choice and I am really excited about what I was able to find! You will see in my grocery haul below that I made a quick trip at my regular grocery store for chicken, bacon and ground turkey.

I’m using the slow cooker several times during the next two weeks – I love coming home from a long day and having supper all ready for me! However…last week I put a beautiful beef roast in the slow cooker and headed to work. All day long I dreamed of the delicious BBQ beef sandwiches we would be enjoying for supper. I got home around 6:30 and was HORRIFIED to find that the power had blipped off and back on around 10 AM. My beautiful beef roast was disgustingly room temperature and perfectly raw. I nearly cried. Has that ever happened to you? I am wondering if I should plug my slow cooker into a surge protector next time?!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m on an incredibly tight budget this pay period and this is just what I needed.


  2. GAH!!! That crock pot story has me super bummed for you! That’s the point of a crock pot dinner – to have dinner ready when you come in. What a disappointment! I don’t know if a surge protector would work? Who knows. But loving your 2 week menu concept. I’m thinking of adapting something similar post-baby. Do a 2 week menu and then just do it over and over again for a few months until life settles down… same grocery store, same grocery list.


  3. Hi Whitney –

    My name is Jennifer…and I tried contacting you my email (here on your blog). I was just wondering if you received the email? I had someone, yesterday, say they did not receive (a work) email….so I thought I would check.

    Just curious –



  4. Oh NO!!! I totally would have cried. That did happen to me once, but I caught it an hour later. So sorry :(.


  5. I went to Aldis the other day and picked up some great produce and milk at a wonderful price. I may stop by there every now and then to get the bargains. And I have to say again how pretty your dessert looked on Instagram. I love old glass ware and it makes me happy to see a young lady who likes it too!!


    1. Aww, thanks friend! I love those dishes too! It’s a good idea to find out what day they get a new truck of produce and shop that morning. Sometimes it’s feast or famine with produce at Aldi, and knowing the truck day makes a difference.
