Frozen Chicken Filets

The chicken is juicy, flavorful, and crisp, making it a family favorite. A 24oz bag costs $8.79, depending on your location, and it cooks quickly to add to salads, pasta, or sandwiches, Ramhold added.



At my nearby Aldi, a dozen eggs cost $1.09, a dozen cage-free eggs cost $2.75, and a dozen organic cage-free eggs cost $3.95. You can also find free range and pasture-raised meat at low prices at Aldi.


Samoa Cookie Knockoffs

"These chocolate, caramel, and coconut cookies are very popular, but you can only get them at certain times of the year. During the 2023 cookie season, each box cost $5."


High-Quality, Fair-Trade Chocolate

That Moser and Roth's chocolate bars cost about half as much or less as similar brands at stores like Publix, Kroger, or Target. This is great if you want good chocolate without spending a lot of money on it.


Canned Goods

Schuering loves shopping at Aldi for staple canned goods such as beans, fruit and tomatoes for “[w]ell under $1 per can.” You can’t beat prices like that.



Cheeses can add so much to a meal, whether you’re laying it on thick for a homemade mac ‘n’ cheese, laying out some tasty cheeses for a charcuterie or cheese plate or mixing it into a tasty omelet.


Fresh Herbs

Aside from planting your own herbs, buying them at Aldi may be your best bet, Schuering said. “Most grocery stores seem to sell infuriatingly small clamshells of fresh herbs for over $3 a piece.


Drink Mixes

If you don’t want to pay big prices for tasty drinks, Schuering said, “The Aldi brand of drink mixes are less than half as much as Crystal Light.


Vegan Items

Vegan-friendly staples are almost always cheaper at Aldi, according to Jake Hill, CEO of DebtHammer. “These include shredded Vegan cheese, non-dairy desserts, plant-based meat substitutes, and many more items.
