Go big or go home with ALDI Finds this week — plus, bathroom accessories!
It’s a small yet mighty ALDI ad this week, so let’s see what’s what. First off, be sure to take a look for this Visage facial cleanser in the special buys for $9.99 — that’s a crazy good price for something like this. If you pick one up, let us know how it works; I’m curious! You can also pick up a Visage hair straightening brush for $14.99. (I’ve heard that these in general don’t work as well as a flatiron, but this isn’t a bad price point to test that out for yourself.)
Here are a few more of my favorite ALDI Finds and sale items from the new week’s ad starting either 8/18/19 or 8/21/19 (although, even in Sunday markets, many of the new non-food Finds don’t release until Wednesday).
ALDI Food Finds this week include 80 oz jars of pickles
Well. That’s a lot of pickles. Look for these club-sized 80 oz jars of Great Gherkins whole Kosher Dill pickles at $3.79, which I spotted near the registers at my local store today. Also near the registers at my store, Specially Selected balsamic glaze is back at $3.29.
More food Finds…
Last week I told you about the Samsons red grapes on sale at my ALDI, but this week in my region it’s back to green grapes at $.85/lb. (Yes, I bought a bag today!) Also on the produce front, look for cantaloupe, avocados, and mini cucumbers to be on sale in many areas of the country. I will note, though, that the avocados didn’t look great at my store today — which reminds me of this recent story about restaurants serving phony squash-based guacamole as avocado prices have been rising. Did you see that one?!
ALDI is still pushing lunchbox sales this week, including 9 oz Lunch Mate deli style lunch meats at $1.99 each, 16 oz Friendly Farms Moo Tubes for $1.39, 20 single serve Clancy’s snacks for $4.99, and Baker’s Treat 5 pack mini muffins for $1.99.
On the meatier front, the Chicago area has bone-in chicken thighs at $.79/lb, organic grass fed strip steak at $9.99/lb, and whole Atlantic salmon sides on sale for $6.79/lb. These sales can vary by region, so check your local ad.
ALDI non-food Finds: Family packs & bathroom accessories
ALDI isn’t just going big with pickles this week; look for family packs of paper products in the Aisle of Shame. Note though that these are decent but not super great prices. The Willow TP at $14.99 for 18 mega rolls, for instance, works out to about $.21 per single roll equivalent, which is over my own buy price. (A 30 second search on Amazon turns up a family pack of Cottonelle for about $.16 per single roll equivalent at today’s pricing…) I also spotted 8 giant roll Boulder paper towels ( = 12 single rolls) for $7.19, 300 packs of Boulder paper plates for $5.99, and four packs of 75 ct Willow facial tissue with lotion for $4.49.
Where you can save money, though, is on little boys’ hair cuts! We’ve saved countless dollars over the years cutting the boys’ hairs with clippers using a similar haircut kit, and this Visage 20-piece number cut haircut kit is running a few bucks cheaper than the non-sale price of the name brand.
Other bathroom accessories this week include:
- Easy Home toilet tissue roll dispenser with shelf, $6.99
- Huntington Home memory foam bath mats, $9.99 for large or $5.99 for small
- Easy Home double-sided magnifying mirror, $14.99

- Easy Home hair care or vanity organizers, $9.99
- Easy Home 2 pack moisture absorbers, $4.99
- SOHL shower caddy with tension pole or 3 shelf bathroom space saver shelf, $14.99
And for your last gasp of outdoor fun this year…
I found 8″ garden mums in my store today at $2.99, but availability will vary by growing region. Also look for Huntington Home outdoor vinyl tablecloths, just $2.99 each.
