ALDI is a great store for almost everyone.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or your family, Aldi can offer huge savings compared to other retailers.
Foodie Marina DiAntonio often produces content on her TikTok channel about what special meals she eats during the day and what she buys while shopping.
Recently, her goal was to stay under a $50 budget to support herself and her husband, Nick, by shopping at Aldi.
This time, however, she was disappointed because the store didn’t have a few items she wanted.
Despite this, she was able to keep her budget within the store to about $30.
list of items
Here’s the collection of items Marina picked up at a recent Aldi run.
- dozen eggs
- Big cucumber
- Bag of green beans
- Container of blue cheese
- Two containers of feta cheese
- Frozen bag of corn
- skim milk
- Bag of baby carrots
- Bag of spring onions
- bag of coriander
- Bag of mini peppers
- Container of sprinkles
- Container with mushrooms
- bag of tomatoes
- carton of strawberries
- Two bunches of bananas
In all, this list cost her $30.30.
But unfortunately Aldi didn’t have everything she was looking for.
For example, Aldi’s chicken breast and almond milk were sold out when she walked into the store, according to Marina.
Also, Marina went to Walmart for parsley and Jif peanut butter to add another $9 to her grocery bill for the week.
Some meals she made
In the past week, Marina has prepared some meals and snacks with the purchased products.
For example, one day she ate eggs for breakfast and had leftover blue cheese pasta for lunch.
And another day, she had a protein smoothie (post-workout) and some fruit later in the day.
Savings opportunities at Aldi
Aldi has many offers for those looking to save money.
When you’re looking for the best deals at Aldi, experts say Wednesdays are the best days to travel.
This is because the Aldi Finds sales section is usually restocked on Tuesday evenings or Wednesday mornings.
But it’s not just the deals on the shelves to look out for if you’re looking to save money.
You can get additional savings by using cashback and couponing apps that accept Aldi receipts.
And if you’re a frequent Aldi shopper, be sure to download the Aldi app so you don’t miss out on all the app-exclusive benefits.
