Pizza Night with Aldi

Pizza Night with Aldi

I try my best to plan out our meals for the week, but life can often throw your curve balls.  If I have a migraine or other illness, I definitely need a dinner that is a quick fix.  Or if Noah’s event schedule changes, we may find ourselves needing to make something quick or we may even find ourselves having a dinner for two.  In other cases, we may have last second company and need to make something quick for extra people.  Whatever the reason, I always try to have several easy dinner night options on hand.

In the past I’ve told you how much I love Aldi and all the great deals they have to offer on some of my favorite grocery items.  During my most recent trip, I picked up a deli pizza.  Aldi has a number of core range and special buy pizza’s from their store brand Mama Cozi. [Read more…]

My Favorite ALDI Products #aldiraves


Today we’re taking an inside look at my latest trip to ALDI.  I bought a lot of the items I’d typically buy on a trip to the market, including milk, cheese, meat, can goods, baking ingredients, and snacks.  The grand total for my entire trip was $85!

That probably doesn’t sound like a lot of money to spend on groceries, but if you look below, you’ll see just how much groceries I was able to get for this amount at ALDI.
