Healthy and Frugal Aldi Haul and Menu Plan For The Week

This week my husband won’t be eating at home at all because of his work schedule so I did an Aldi run for the week. I have eggs, milk and meat at home so this was mostly a produce trip. 

Here is what I purchased! 


3 yogurts are missing from this picture as my kids were so excited I bought yogurt that they had one each after dinner. I don’t buy that item often as we treat it nutritionally the same as ice cream. One of these buddies has 17g of sugar. 4g is the equivalent of a teaspoon and 3 teaspoons is one tablespoon so here you have about a tablespoon and a half of sugar in an item many people believe is a health food. It’s a dessert in this house. But on occasion and at request I’ll buy them. I believe firmly that always being a “no” Mom creates a forbidden fruit mindset for children later in life. 

Here is a breakdown of everything I bought price wise! 

12 whole milk yogurts $.33 each -$3.96

Multi peppers 3 pk $1.69 each- $3.38

Green peppers – $1.29

(Peppers were all great prices)

Fresh asparagus- $1.49

Sweet corn – $1.49

Beverage stakes $1.99 each – $3.98

(My husbands love language is sitting with him as he uses a fire pit so I thought these would be perfect for our summer activities)

Kiwis 2lbs – $1.99

(Great price)

Bananas $.29 lb  4.95 lbs – $1.44

Peaches – $1.98

Unsweetened applesauce – $1.89

Ketchup – $.89

( We are hosting a BBQ so this is for that. They did not have yellow mustard like I wanted. )

White vinager – $.79

Sunflower kernels – $1.99

Whole coffee beans – $4.79


(Great price for fair trade certified organic coffee. )

Dark chocolate bars $1.99 each – $3.98

(A treat for me, for several weeks, since I am dairy free and can’t indulge in yogurt. )

Lance peanut butter crackers – $.99

Saltines – $1.19

Oyster crackers $.79

(Both on hand for any sickness as we are depleted. )

Total $38.30 before tax.
