Large Family $198 Aldi Grocery Haul + Weekly Meal Plan (GREAT deal on chicken!)

Large Family $198 Aldi Grocery Haul + Weekly Meal Plan (GREAT deal on chicken!)

Large Family Groceries

In this week’s large family grocery haul I spent more than the past few weeks (you can see my $118.01 Large Family Aldi Grocery Haul here, the $150 Large Family Aldi Grocery Haul here, and the Family of Nine Aldi One Week Grocery Haul + Large Family Meal Plan { Haul only $165 = $18.33 per person!) here.). This Aldi haul came to $198. However, I snagged what I believe is the BEST deal I’ve ever gotten on chicken breast. Plus I picked up extra fruits and snacks for two large picnics we had with friends over the weekend. Overall this was a fantastic grocery haul and savings!

The AMAZING Deals This Week

 Aldi Chicken Deal

I think the most amazing deal this week was the boneless/skinless chicken breasts that were only $1.49/lb. I ended up getting about 24 lbs. I have never found boneless/skinless chicken breast this cheap. Naturally, I felt like I might hyperventilate.  

 Cantaloupe Deal

Canataloupe was only $1.39/each

Sweet Onion Deal 

Sweet Onions were $0.69 pr bag

Green Tea Deal 

Arizona Green Tea was only $0.49/can! I resisted this deal even though I have always loved this tea. I was getting towards the end of my cash-based grocery budget for the week. However it’s a great deal to look out for if you also like this tea.  

Eggs where still $0.59/dozen. I picked up yet another 10 dozen this week.

???Will These Aldi Prices Last???

Aldi Eggs

One viewer on YouTube shared that the Aldi I’m currently shopping at has its prices marked so low because they have some overstocks at this new location. This very well could be. I have heard from other moms who shop at Aldi locations all over the country, and they say their eggs are also $0.59-$0.89/dozen at this time, and milk is anywhere from $0.98-$2.00/gallon. I’ve also heard from moms who say their location Aldi stinks and never has any good deals.

I’m not sure if my new Aldi location will end up offering these amazing savings and deals long term. Of course I’m very hopeful that they will. We’ll walk it out together and I’ll let you know how it works out. Who knows, it could just be a temporary blessing 🙂 I’m starting to plan my next Once a Month Grocery Shopping haul, and I’m excited to mix in this new Aldi into the mix!

I don’t have my versions of these recipes currently published as of this posting. However I’ve done a quick Pinterest search to link you to variations below:

  • Monday/TuesdayLarge Family Style Chicken Fried Rice (I call what I make “Stir-Fry,” however it’s more of a Stir-Fry and Fried Rice Hybrid. I just filmed a vlog of my creation. Hopefully I can get that published in the next week or so.)
