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...]

You can get great deals at ALDI stores and save quite a bit of money. There are several ways that ALDI is able to do this.
Earlier this summer I had the privilege of touring an ALDI grocery store in Cincinnati, Ohio with the ALDI PR team. As you can imagine, it was very interesting to walk through the store and hear how and why their prices are often as much as 50% lower than other grocery stores. Here are a few operational efficiencies that allow ALDI to keep costs to their consumers low while providing quality products: [Read more...]
Hurry into your local Kmart to snag a super hot deal on Glade products.
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...]
Spruced Up Cake Mix: Double Chocolate Cake
Kasey here, recently we hosted a cook out at our house for the Time 2 $ave team and their family’s. It was so great to spend time with everyone, and our kids had a blast playing in the backyard together. I made a chocolate cake for dessert and posted the pic on facebook. Immediately my wall blew up with comments requesting the recipe. Who knew a chocolate cake could garner such a response. It was so simple to make! I followed my blogger friend, Hoosier Homemade’s advice and spruced up an ALDI cake mix. She always adds four eggs (even if the mix calls for less) and replaces the water with buttermilk. Although I generally prefer homemade cakes I thought I would try her suggestion since I was on such a tight time frame. Oh. My. Word. It was so moist and delicious! I added homemade icing, and garnished with one of the premium milk chocolate bars from ALDI. I think it turned out beautifully. Amazed at how easy it was to grate the chocolate bar using a cheese grater! I’ve included my recipe below for my spruced up cake mix double chocolate cake recipe!
I made another cake yesterday to take to church however it didn’t turn out nearly as pretty. It’s really important to give the cake time to completely cool before drizzling the icing. Then, make sure to allow the icing to cool before adding the chocolate shavings. I didn’t have time for either Saturday morning and by the time we got to church my cake looked like a hot mess! The chocolate shavings melted everywhere. Oh well,lesson learned! [Read more...]
