bavarian soft pretzels

All the kids here really enjoy the frozen soft pretzels, so we might be picking up a box of those to enjoy during winter break.

And these German breads are nicely dense and chewy, for those of you looking for an authentic experience.

As always, both advertised and unadvertised ALDI prices can vary by store and by region. Here are more of the top ALDI Finds for the week of 12/21/22. (You may also Find some on 12/18/22 in Sunday ad markets, or if your store tends to put products out early.)

tree storage  bag

Our main non-food themes this week are apparently organization and coziness; plan ahead to get your holiday items stored away nicely in the new year.

undated planner

The Premium planners in stores this week are available in blue, green, purple, or cream, and $6.99 gets you an undated 6″x8.5″ 12-month planner sporting a faux leather cover and loop closure. Above is last year’s photo, but this year’s edition is similar in design.

auto safety kit

Given the winter weather this week, the auto safety kit seems like it might be a good idea!
