Saving Money and Eating Fabulously: Tips for Shopping at Aldi
If you know me, then you would know I am an “Aldi girl!” I love saving money and eating fabulous food. I love packing my groceries so they are perfect when I get home, and I love no shopping carts hitting my car.
Additionally, Aldi is a popular grocery store chain known for its low prices and wide selection of products. The store prides itself on offering high-quality goods at a fraction of the cost of other retailers. Aldi stores are typically smaller than traditional supermarkets, which helps keep prices low.
I have some suggestions on the best approach to shopping at Aldi.
- Make a list and stick to it. This will help you avoid impulse purchases and stay within your budget.
- Shop on Wednesdays or Thursdays. These are the days when new products are typically restocked, so you’ll have the best selection to choose from.
- Check out Aldi’s Special Buys section. This is where you’ll find limited-time deals on various products, from kitchen appliances to outdoor gear.
- Take your own bags. Aldi charges for bags, so bring your own reusable ones to save money.
- Compare prices. Aldi’s prices are already low, but it’s still a good idea to compare them to other retailers to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
- Take advantage of Aldi’s double guarantee. If you’re unsatisfied with a product, Aldi will refund your money and give you a replacement item.
- Don’t overlook Aldi’s private-label brands. They’re often just as good as national brands and are usually cheaper.
- Look for clearance items. Aldi marks down products nearing their expiration date so that you can save even more money.
- Try Aldi’s store-brand organic products. They’re often cheaper than national brands but still meet organic standards.
- Take advantage of Aldi’s online grocery ordering and curbside pickup options. This can save you time and energy.

- Check Aldi’s weekly ad for deals and discounts on Valentine’s Day gifts, such as flowers, chocolates, wine, and ingredients for a romantic dinner at home.
- Look out for special promotions and offers on Valentine’s Day-themed items.
- Plan your shopping trip around the store’s sale schedule to make the most of their discounts.

A Brief History of Valentine’s Day
Did you know that the first recorded Valentine’s Day love letter was written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London?
By the 18th century, lovers had commonly exchanged small tokens of affection, such as flowers, chocolates, and cards, on Valentine’s Day. I only found out that fact when I was hunting for the history of Valentine’s Day!
