ALDI Finds: From Lobster Roll Dip to a Baby Shark Suitcase
It’s a somewhat ironic week for sales on travel items, but why not plan ahead! These licensed kids’ rolling suitcases are sure to be a hit with your little one, at $16.99 each. Also for the kids, Look & Find travel book sets, $9.99.
The grown folk will have to make do with these $18.99 Skylite weekender tote bags or duffels. (I wasn’t personally a huge fan of the prints on these, which is totally fine — keeps me from impulse buying, right?) You’ll also find Skylite three piece packing cubes or hanging cosmetic bags ($6.99), or Huntington Home twist memory foam travel pillows ($8.99).
Here are a few more of my favorite ALDI Finds and sale items from the new week’s ad, starting either 3/8/20 or 3/11/20. (Note: Even in Sunday markets, many of the new non-food Finds don’t release until Wednesday.) These are filled out with a few new non-advertised Finds that I’ve spotted at my own store recently.
ALDI Food Finds this week
Let’s kick things off in the frozen foods section this week, where 24 oz bags of Season’s Choice country style French fries run $1.99. Fancier potato aficionados, rejoice in Season’s Choice potatoes, green beans in rosemary, or garden medley 11 oz bags at $1.79. Other Finds of the freezer:
- Mama Cozzi’s garlic breadsticks, $1.79
- Specially Selected lobster mac & cheese or shrimp & lobster bake, $5.99
- Specially Selected seafood paella or jambalaya, $3.99
- Fremont Fish Market 16 oz breaded flounder or Parmesan tilapia, $5.49
- Fremont Fish Market 17 oz crab cakes value pack, $3.99
Oh, and Poke bowls are back! Dang it, because they’re so pricey at $5.99, but so darn good, lol. (Add a little avocado and chopped green onion to bulk these up and balance out the fish.) I spotted these in the freezer section at one of my stores, and in the refrigerated section in the other, so check both places.
Stock your freezer for the future with two pound packs of Fremont Fish Market wild caught pollock fillets, because $4.99 is a great price. Since it’s another firm, mild white fish: You can substitute it for the flounder in this easy fish + asparagus packets recipe (but might need to cook a little longer if the fillets are thicker), or can substitute it for the tilapia in these easy spice rubbed fish tacos.
On the seafood diet? I see more food for you, such as this $3.29 Park Street Deli lobster roll dip. And, 32 oz Fremont Fish Market herring fillets in wine sauce are $6.49 in this week’s ad.

Got anything less fishy, you may well ask? Well… a little. These $1.79 Benton’s cookie melts look pretty dangerous, don’t you think? They’re also advertising Pillsbury Trolls sugar cookie dough for $2.49, which is not at all disturbing.
On the less sweet side, Park Street Deli teriyaki or Korean BBQ chicken stir fry kits are $7.49, while Earthly Grains ready to serve basmati or jasmine rice is $1.49. Drink up 48 Barissimo coffee favorites K-Cups, $13.99, or 18 Benner tea single serve cups, $5.99.
Valley Fresh 100% natural chicken breast in broth 10 oz cans are $1.99 this week, while some regions are featuring family packs of fresh chicken tenderloins on sale. Find flat cut corned beef on sale for St. Patrick’s Day ($2.99/lb in my ad), as well as cabbage, carrots, and red potatoes. Strawberries, grapes, and mandarins round out the produce in many areas of the country this week.
ALDI non-Food Finds this week
Besides travel, we have a couple other major non-food Finds categories this week. Women’s apparel features everything from two packs of camis ($7.99) or leggings ($9.99), to front knot tops, pullovers, or pants ($9.99), to six packs of sport socks or three packs of no muffin top panties ($6.99.
Men can choose from six pairs of sport socks ($6.99) or four packs boxer briefs ($9.99). And, both men and women can pick up hiking boots for $19.99 a pair this week.
Let’s call this next category “kitchen & laundry room organization ‘n stuff.” I actually already have Easy Home fridge liners in my produce drawers from last year’s sale, and they do the job nicely — but do tend to bunch up at the back of the drawer if your kids, like mine, tend to shove stuff in there all willy-nilly. $3.99 for a pack of three this week.
Other Finds in this category include:
- Easy Home over the cabinet baskets, $7.99
- Easy Home wire cabinet organizers, $3.99
- Easy Home kitchen sink organizers, $3.99
- Easy Home kitchen drawer organizers, $4.99
- Easy Home kitchen cabinet organizers, $4.99
- Welby step stool with handle or stand assist, $19.99
- Easy Home non slip ironing mat, $4.99
- Easy Home flexi basket, $3.69
- Easy Home 2 pack mesh wash or bra laundry bags, $2.99
- Easy Home steam iron, $12.99
And to haul everything home to stock that organized kitchen, try a stair climbing multi-use tote, $29.99. Other aids to your mobility include a Welby adjustable rollator, $49.99, or an offset or folding cane, $8.99.
Now, organize your tools-n-stuff with Workzone accessory drawers, $12.99. Also look for 5 tier heavy duty shelving for $39.99, a foldable hand truck for $22.99, and two packs of foldable saw horses, $19.99.
Another week of course brings us another new batch of $3.99 Huntington Home 3 wick candle scents. (For the curious, apparently “Easter basket” is on the floral side.) If this has you feeling spring-ish: Also look for stuffs to feed the birds, from the feeders themselves to a 20 lb bag of $6.99 wild bird food.
Gardenline is also back in the plant business this week (ranging from $3.99-$14.99), with berry bushes, hydrangeas, mixed spring bulbs, ornamental shrubs, and shade or ornamental trees. My ALDI forsythia from years ago are doing great, by the way, and make a lovely border for my garage.
