This week, I’m hosting the Eat at Home Challenge on my blog and on Facebook. I’ll be doing a live video every morning around 7 a.m. CT on Facebook making my dinner in the slow cooker.
(I’d love for you to join me in this challenge! You can read more about it here. You can sign up for the Facebook Group here.)
Since I’m following the Slow Cooker Menu Plan from Eat at Home for this challenge, I bought ingredients to make those meals + get our food for the rest of the meals this week. I decided to only shop at ALDI this week for the groceries to see if I could get everything for the Slow Cooker Menu Plan at ALDI.
I had to make one or two substitutions, but I was able to get everything we needed! We still need to stop by Kroger to get eggs and some more milk, but otherwise, we should be good for the week!
(In case you are wondering why on earth I did two different transactions… well, that was because I realized I didn’t have a quarter when I got to ALDI. Which meant that I couldn’t get a cart. I was going to go in and get a quarter from the cashier, but there was a long line at checkout. So I just decided to get a box and fill it up and check out when it was almost too heavy for me to carry and then do a second transaction. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that as the most comfortable or efficient way to do things, but hey, it worked! ;))
Watch my live video for details on what I bought, why I bought it, the prices I paid, plus some real-life commentary on ALDI!

I love Aldi too, so glad we finally got one here. Lol about the quarter! I learned the hard way and now KEEP an “Aldi quarter” in my cup holder in the car. Now I need to learn to never, ever go in that store again with just a bag thinking I won’t need a basket…
Why u not get eggs and milk at aldi? 1.19 milk and 29 cent eggs
We just got an Aldi’s and I’m in love! They are currently having a price war with the local grocery store (HEB) and strawberries and blueberries were down to $.25 and avocados at $.10 at both stores!
Whoa! Those are incredible prices!! -Meg, MSM Team
I love shopping Aldi every week! I’m also a fan of the multi-grain Crispy Oats… well, my daughter more so. Their frozen chicken breasts have been a lot cheaper than anywhere else, so I’ve been stocking up my freezer!
