ALDI + Instacart FTW

aldi on Instacart

So, remember I told you way back when that I had tried ALDI on Instacart when it became available in my area, and promised to review the service for you posthaste? Wellll… better late than never, because the code for $20 off your first order of $35 plus free delivery is still valid until end-May!

  • *** See what I thought, what to look out for, the $20 off $35 code, and a couple of tips in my ALDI Instacart review.

(And I have to admit, it was kind of handy to have groceries delivered to my door…)

But back to this week’s ALDI meal plan…

Let’s get ready to make six complete dinners for a family of four, just $60.00 out the door! Hope you find the free ALDI meal plans useful.

Things to know about the ALDI 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 come up 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, you can 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 and dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 4/8-4/14 in Sunday ad markets, and 4/11-4/17 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices were collected on 4/11/18 at 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 4/15/18.

Thank you so much for these meal plans! Since using them we have cut our grocery bill in half and it’s especially helpful that they are healthy meals. THANK YOU!!

I made the chicken fajita rice bowls last night (not going in the right order, but why not? :)) and they were terrific! This could be a lifesaver for me, as I struggle with meal planning. I love the printable menus/grocery list, and I love shopping at Aldi--a win all the way around. :)

Awesome! So glad you enjoyed them -- and there's no law, do any order you like. ;)
