ALDI: My Trip to Corporate Headquarters and Exciting News!

Last week I told you that I was headed to Chicago for a trip to ALDI’s test kitchen for a holiday event with several other bloggers from across the country. Personally, I love to shop at ALDI. Since their low prices are so much cheaper than my local grocery store I know I am getting incredible deals on my groceries without worrying about coupons. Especially since we changed our diet and have cut out most processed foods, it was important to find a way to save money on our groceries as there aren’t generally coupons available for the kinds of foods we buy.

I’ve included a couple highlights from my trip below along with exciting news! [Read more...]

Time 2 $ave Cookout 2013

cookout 2013

Recently, I was contacted by ALDI about hosting a summer cookout. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to invite all the girls that help out on the blog and their family’s over for a cookout.  Between trying to coordinate my schedule and everyone else’s along with the over abundance of rain I ended up having to pick a date on short notice.  As in, I invited everyone on Monday and the party was on Thursday. Not much time to prepare since I was gone all day Monday and Tuesday. In fact, I didn’t even make it to ALDI until Wednesday night. So, I decided to keep everything super simple. I told everyone just to show up, I would take care of everything if they would just bring drinks for their family. [Read more...]

Since we started eating healthier this year, a large part of our grocery budget goes to fresh fruits and veggies.  To keep our grocery budget under control I typically make an Aldi run since they have such great prices on produce.  Since we had a list a mile long of projects we needed to tackle in our back yard I didn’t want to spend my afternoon running errands.  We had to go to Walmart to pick up light bulbs and a couple other items so I decided to price match the produce in this weeks Aldi’s ad.  I was surprised to see just how much money I saved.
