What are you going to make with yours?
Here are a few more of my favorite ALDI Finds and sale items from the new week’s ad, starting either 2/9/20 or 2/12/20. (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
Big 5 lb Priano frozen lasagnas are back in stores this week, at $9.99 apiece. My one-sentence review on these: I feel they are a little too saucy and a little too sweet; the kids feel they’re awesome.
Continuing down the freezer section, what else is back this week? Season’s Choice frozen avocado chunks: 10 oz for $2.99. High marks for convenience on these, but lower marks for affordability — if you picked up any of the avocados that have been on sale over the last couple of weeks, chop ’em up and freeze ’em! (Just out of curiosity, I removed the pit and skin from an ALDI avocado I had lying around and weighed the flesh of that one avocado at 8 oz.)
Freeze on freezing on with Bremer chicken melts or Angus cheeseburger flatbread sandwiches, $4.99 a box. More frozen Finds that strike my fancy?

More Food Finds this week include Specially Selected cauliflower or basil gnocchi, $2.99, Mama Cozzi’s meatball deli calzone for $1.99, and a Specially Selected brioche baguette at $3.49. Ooh! And cheese. (Yes, I really like cheese, lol…) 7 oz Specially Selected Edam, Gouda, or smoked Gouda for $2.99 — or Specially Selected 10 oz aged reserve white cheddar, $2.49.

(Strawberries are just $1.29 in my local ad, which will make Middle School Guy very happy over here.)
ALDI non-Food Finds this week

I was wondering about the Easy Home divided laundry baskets in this week’s ad ($7.99), but they appear to be regular laundry baskets with a divider piece that just hooks into the middle.
