$35 Cheap Aldi Meal Plan You Must Try + Free Printables

Do you know how to meal plan? It is easy to create a cheap Aldi meal plan with the low prices found at this store. Have you heard of Aldi, a popular discount grocery store? Most people that are into saving money have at least visited Aldi once or twice.

But if you are looking to save money, this Aldi meal plan is definitely something you want to check out.

If you are new to Aldi it is a popular discount grocery chain that started in Europe and eventually made it’s a way to the states. It is owned by Trader Joe’s so most of the food is of high quality.

Aldi’s low prices come at a cost, but after you get used to Aldi’s little quirks such as renting your grocery cart for $0.25 and bringing your own grocery bags, you will fall in love with the savings.

My Aldi’s Challenge

My challenge for this post -it was really just a personal challenge- was to buy at least seven dinners, so dinners for one week, and keep my cost under $35.

Do you think I was able to do it? (I know the suspense is killing you!)

If you answered yes, because of Aldi’s low prices, you are correct.

This post will show you how to create a simple meal plan from Aldi for under $35.

You will also find some of the meals are on the larger side so depending on the size of your family, you may end up with leftovers. I have a family of four with kids ages currently seven and five and this was plenty of food for all of us. My husband and I even got lunch leftovers a few of the days.

I will include a printable menu plan and printable grocery list at the end of the post so read through to pick up your goodies and get ready to save!
