ALDI Shopping Guide

ALDI Shopping Guide

If you want to eat healthy but would like to also stay on a budget this little shopping guide is for you. I have complied a list of my favorite staples from Aldi that you can print and take a long with you for your next grocery haul. Use it as your grocery list and put a little check by the things you need for the week and also add your other items that may not be listed.

Eating a nutritious diet or saying money should not be a choice we have to chose between. Shopping at Aldi helps to save money without compromising nutrition. Aldi has a great produce section that even offers a growing variety of affordable organics.  I did not go into detail in my list of what all to buy in the produce section because the sky is the limit here but some regulars on my list include organic gala apples, pears, bananas, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, avocados, organic salad mixes and a variety of berries.

Below is a list of my Aldi favorites. * A printable PDF is available at the bottom of the list.
