Aldi is one of my favorite places to buy groceries. Not only are the prices great but the quality of food is just as good if not better than most high dollar brand names. If you’ve never shopped at Aldi and you’re looking for how to save money on groceries, you may want to make it a priority to swing by your local store. Before you do your shopping though, you’ll want to know what the best things to buy at Aldi area. That way, when you are in store, you know what you should make a point to grab.


What to buy at Aldi - New to shopping Aldi? Make sure you grab the very best things to buy at Aldi! They're cheaper, taste amazing and your family (and grocery budget) are sure to love them!

I really have to watch myself when I go into an Aldi. Since I prefer to keep a stockpile to help save money in the long run, I make my Aldi trips around once every three months. It’s very easy for me to spend several hundred dollars on an Aldi run even if the prices are so great. Luckily, I’ve shopped at Aldi long enough that I know what the best things to buy at Aldi are and what not to bother with so I don’t end up wasting money.


Best Things to Buy at Aldi

When I set out to do this post, I wanted to list enough of the best things to buy at Aldi in my list to make your trip worth it. What you’ll need to understand about Aldi is that I’ve really only run into a couple of situations where it was not a good buy. You won’t notice any meat on the list. It isn’t because their meat is bad, but more that I can typically find it cheaper elsewhere. Bread is another item that does not make my list of best things to buy at Aldi. Again, I can buy it cheaper elsewhere. Actually, bread is one of the things I stopped buying and started making homemade since it’s cheaper to do that, but the price in other stores is cheaper elsewhere.


What to Buy at Aldi


Finally, before I get down to the actual list of best things to buy at Aldi, I do want to mention regional differences. Your state and its laws may be different than those of Texas. Where my prices may make an item one of the best things to buy at Aldi, yours may not. Always double check your local store and it’s prices before assuming it is priced low. If you make the assumption and the product is priced higher, you could throw your entire grocery budget off.

Aldi Shopping List


1. Organic Beans

Organic beans can run you quite a bit at other stores, but both organic canned beans and organic dry beans top my list of things to buy at Aldi. My own store has organic black beans and organic kidney beans for just $0.85 per can!

2. Gluten Free Bread

I recently had to start a gluten free diet and let me tell you; gluten free bread is crazy expensive! Around here it’s roughly $9.99 for a 12 oz loaf! Eventually I’ll move into making it myself, but for now I can grab a 12 oz loaf at Aldi for $3.99!

3. Gluten Free Bagels

Following along with the gluten free bread, one of the top things to buy at Aldi on my list are their gluten free bagels. I love a bagel with cream cheese for lunch and had really been missing them. At $3.99 per pack, they’re a steal at Aldi.

4. Gluten Free Spinach Wraps

Since I’ve gone gluten free, one of the foods I miss the most is tortillas. Lucky for me, Aldi’s gluten free spinach wraps are a pretty decent substitute. They taste great and they work well for soft tacos and burritos at a great price.

5. Milk

My family has made the switch to raw milk, but if your family goes through milk like mine does, you’ll know how expensive it can get. Aldi’s milk is a GREAT price. It varies from week to week but my store is usually around $1.49 per gallon.

6. Eggs

Like milk, eggs are usually extraordinarily cheap at Aldi they are at the tip top of the best things to buy at Aldi. Usually they’re priced right around $0.75 per dozen at my store making them well worth your time to check out.

7. Butter

Real butter is super expensive at most stores. At Aldi though, it’s a lot cheaper. In fact, my Aldi’s regular price is the sale price elsewhere. Plus, the butter quality is amazing!

8. Block and Shredded Cheese

Block and cheddar cheese can be $3.00 or more per package, but at Aldi, you’ll pay less than $2.00 each making it a must grab item at Aldi.

9. 1,000 sheet toilet paper

If you like Scott 1000 bathroom tissue, head to Aldi for their 1,000 sheet tp. It’s almost exactly the same as the more expensive Scott brand.

10. Organic Tortilla Chips

I love taco salad as a quick and easy lunch, but I still crave that crunch from a taco shell. Not only are Aldi’s Organic Tortilla chips with sea salt a great price but they’re also gluten free!
