ALDI Finds week of 5/11/22: Plant your garden, enjoy some cheesecake

ALDI Finds for the week of 5/11/22 include spring plants, gluten free cheesecake, elote style corn, and more. Check them out below, and let me know what you want to Find this week.

aldi spring perennials in pots

Let’s start with garden and outdoor items in our ALDI Finds roundup today, because it’s going to be 90 degrees here in Chicago, and I’m feeling like planting. Assorted spring perennials (shown above) will run you $6.49 each this week…

san marzano tomato plant from aldi

And, 6″ veggie and herb plants are now up to $3.29 apiece. The tomatoes, peppers, and herbs I got from ALDI last year did quite well throughout the summer, and I’m planning to pick up more this year. Other outdoor Finds of the week include:

  • Summer premium patio planter, $12.99
  • Range Master barbecue caddy, $14.99
  • Gardenline flexible downspout extender, $7.99
  • Belavi 4’x6′ landscape turf rug, $29.99
  • Belavi wooden potting bench, $69.99
  • Gardenline tomato cage (the basic wire ones this time), $2.99
  • Gardenline walk-in greenhouse, $49.99
  • Gardenline garden clogs, $9.99
  • Gardenline pop-up garden bag, $12.99
  • Gardenline 4-pack plant supports, $4.99
  • Belavi seat pad, $9.99
  • Belavi garden bench cushion, $19.99
  • Belavi chair cushion, $19.99
  • Ferrex 20V cordless pole saw, $79.99

An added note: The veggie and herb plants were super limited in variety at my store this year, but MUCH larger than the little ones Home Depot was selling for… $4.78. So, get what you can at ALDI and then supplement elsewhere.

belavi chair cushions

There are such pretty floral outdoor chair pad and cushion options in this ad, if your patio needs a refresh.

hanging baskets

Also on the patio front: While hanging baskets were actually listed in last week’s ad at $7.99, my stores had only a few sad, dead, & unwatered ones in stock. They did, however, just restock with new beautiful baskets this week, so keep looking for those.

Note that both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. Now, let’s talk about the rest of the top ALDI Finds for the week of 5/11/22, as well as some new seasonal Finds for spring and summer 2022. You’ll also Find some on 5/8/22 in Sunday ad markets, or if your store tends to put products out early.

Top ALDI Finds of the week

96 pack coffee cups at aldi

ALDI has 96 ct Barissimo bulk Donut Store coffee cups on sale for $24.89 this week, which works out to $.26 per cup.

This is a decent price, but if you miss the sale or want more varieties, you can generally get similar per-cup bulk pricing on Amazon brand coffee cups or on Maxwell House K-Cups (plus free shipping) with subscribe & save. Hey, we’re “almost” all ALDI around here — I do love ALDI, but we sometimes do have other good options. 🙂

legume rice

I also saw this interesting looking organic/gluten free legume rice on a cart to be shelved at my store yesterday. It didn’t yet have a shelf tag, so since it’s not in the ad, I’m not sure if this is a weekly Find or a new seasonal product.

Here are fifteen more top food Finds (and a couple corn-y food Finds), plus thirty more non-Food Finds, all for the week of 5/11/22. Then, a few more seasonal Finds for you!

What’s Up with ALDI Finds

shipping delays at aldi

What’s up with ALDI Finds? Well, these are limited time special buy items that are available in stores only while supplies last. So if you spot something you like, be sure to pick it up while you can.

Before shopping for new Finds this week, you might wish to visit the ALDI Finds product delays page. Because of ongoing shipping delays and materials shortages affecting ALDI and many other retailers, certain advertised products may not be available in all locations.

Finding the Finds

Where do you Find all of this week’s special buys?

  • Check out the “ALDI Finds” and current weekly ad tabs (or mobile menu choices) on the ALDI site to window shop from home.
  • If you’re planning an in-store shopping trip, use their online ad to help determine what you’ll grab and purchase if you do see it in the store.

Products mentioned in this post were either spotted in store or are from the ad starting 5/8/22 in Sunday ad markets, 5/11/22 in Wednesday ad markets. What caught your eye among this week’s ALDI Finds?
