First-time Aldi shoppers, you’ll need to bring a quarter (not 25 cents, but a quarter) for the refundable deposit on your cart and bring your own grocery bags. They take cash or debit card, but not credit card. Find an Aldi near you.

If it helps you appreciate Aldi a little more, read Wikipedia’s article about them and learn that Aldi is owned by the parent company that owns Trader Joe’s. Don’t forget Aldi’s double guarantee too, where you will get a replacement product AND a refund if you are not 100% satisfied.

Your turn: What else will you pick up this week at Aldi?

  1. They have really nice baking pans and utensils for great prices this week. The pans are nice sturdy ones for 2.99. I picked up extra for future shower gifts. And the utensils were only 1.99 and also nice quality.

  2. Thanks for the tip, Deb! I saw the baking pans and utensils in the ad, but wasn't sure what quality they would be. I bought some pillows there a couple weeks back and have been very pleased. They are very cushy for only being $4.99, and that was queen size pillows!

    That's a great idea to buy some items for future gifts.

  3. Would you be willing to share your recipe that you mentioned last week for mushroom-flavored white sauce in place of cream of mushroom soup? Thanks!

  4. Leigh – I'll tell you what I do, but I'm not one to follow a recipe so these quantities are not exact. I saute a bunch of mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of butter (I totally eyeball the quantity of mushrooms. I sometimes buy sliced and use those or sometimes I chop them into pieces). After the mushrooms are cooked I add in 2 tablespoons flour (I use whole wheat flour, but white works just fine). Cook it for a few minutes over medium-low heat stirring constantly so that it doesn't burn. Then mix in about 2 cups of liquid. Depending on what I am making I use milk or broth (chicken or beef) or a combination. If you really want a creamy looking sauce, then use milk or 1/2 milk and 1/2 broth.

    BTW – I have also started to add a few sweet onions in with the mushrooms with I saute them. Yum!

  5. Leigh- here is the recipe I use for homemade cream of chicken soup.
