*** Add this week’s grocery list to your Instacart. ***


  1. You’ll need to check your pantry for staples not included in this Instacart list. See needed pantry staples below.
  2. The list feature doesn’t allow me to add more than one of an item, or to change the weight of items. Before adding the list to your cart, change the following:
    1. Change the quantity of canned diced tomatoes to three.
    2. Change the weight on your bone-in chicken thighs to 5 lbs, your drumsticks to 3 lbs, and your zucchini to 1.25 lbs.
    3. Change the quantity of Polska kielbasa to two.
    4. Change the mangoes quantity to two, mushrooms quantity to three, and Roma tomatoes quantity to two.
  3. Click “add” on any items you want to place in your cart; omit any items you don’t want or already have.
  4. Add anything else you need for the week to your cart, and check out!

Add your list to Instacart is a newer feature I’m testing out, so please use at your own risk and always double check your cart against the recipes. It’s a work in progress! Note: Instacart prices are higher than in store, so your total will be higher than shown in the above grocery list.

** Pantry staples to check for before shopping: Olive oil, butter, smoked paprika, paprika, oregano, basil, parsley, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, seasoned salt, sea salt, black pepper

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 up, 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 10/23-10/29 in Sunday ad markets, and 10/26-11/1 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices are from my local store in the Chicago suburbs. Prices and produce deals *can vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 10/30/22.

I can't open the weekly meal plans. It clicks to the first page then freezes no matter what I do. Please send me a corrected link. Thank you

You would have had to get to the bottom of this meal plan post in order to add this comment, so I'm not sure what you mean? If you mean the printable version, maybe try the alternative PDF or rtf formats, if the native Word one isn't working for you?
