Things to know about these meal plans

A couple of notes

  1. I try not to repeat main dish recipes more often than once a month, but you will see favorite easy recipes again in these weekly ALDI meal plans as the same meats and produce items come up again on sale. Part of the fun of meal planning lies in mixing old stand-bys with something new each week.
  2. If one or more of these recipes isn’t to your taste, or if you have other ingredients to use, adapt the recipes in this ALDI meal plan to your family’s preferences. Or, just use the ideas here to supplement your own meal planning! See: Pantry staples to stock up on and how to modify a meal plan for your family.

** ad markets & dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 1/2-1/8 in Sunday ad markets, and 1/5-1/11 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices are from my local store in the Chicago suburbs, but non-advertised prices and produce deals *may vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 1/9/22.

Saturday 8th of January 2022

Not sure what is going on, but it seems like this isn't matching up with whats on sale in Wisconsin, or at least NE Wisconsin. The only thing that was the same price was the beans. Nothing was on sale on the list. Did Aldi start doing different sales for different areas now instead of same nationwide?


Saturday 8th of January 2022

Everyday prices will vary regionally, and they’ll run different produce and meats of the week on sale in different markets. Usually it kind of evens out.
