Back when we were kids, any grocery store that had a big candy aisle and a sugary array of breakfast cereals earned our stamps of approval. But in this era of organic everything and very little free time, the perks we look for in a grocery store have changed.
Number one on our list—healthy options for the whole family. Coming in second—a grocer that offers us more than just produce and packaged goods so we can shop, save, and be on our way without store hopping. Now that we're the parents rather than the kids in the equation, efficient shopping trips are more important than ever. In fact, we love a good grocery store so much that when we find one we love we can’t keep the secret to ourselves. That's why we've partnered up with ALDI—the national grocery store chain that just added an amazing array of infant and toddler products called Little Journey to their already stellar lineup—to show you there's so much more to ALDI stores than just great food at an incredible value.
If you've never heard of ALDI, we're about to rock your grocery store world! A few reasons we love ALDI:
- A double money back guarantee—if you aren’t satisfied with an ALDI-exclusive product they'll not only replace it but also, refund you.
- ALDI just launched Little Journey—a high-quality, affordable line that includes infant and toddler formula, snacks, diapers, and wipes.
- ALDI makes shopping eco-friendly by requiring shoppers to bring a reusable bag or pay for plastic.
- Thanks to customer feedback, ALDI made a big move to get rid of added MSG, certified synthetic colors, and partially hydrogenated oils from ALDI-exclusive food brands. Feel-good food is easy to find with clearly marked labels on the front of packages.
Affordable, High-Quality Buys for Baby
ALDI is best known for giving its shoppers access to products at the same quality level as national brands but for much lower prices. This is evident in the baby aisle! The store's new Little Journey line has everything you need to keep your kids healthy and comfortable. For snack time, ALDI offers Little Journey re-sealable organic snack pouches, snack puffs, and real fruit and yogurt bites, all at nearly 50* percent less than national brands. The store also offers a wide range of formulas that are approved by the FDA and recommended by pediatricians. Whether you're looking for infant formula, soy formula, or a formula for sensitives tummies, ALDI has an option for your baby or toddler.
The Little Journey line also includes a full collection of hypoallergenic wipes and diapers. From newborn diapers to training pants, the Little Journey line offers the same comfort and leak protection of national brands at half* the price.

If you have gluten sensitivity it can be tough to find tasty snacks that are safe to eat. Turns out, ALDI shelves are packed with gluten-free finds. Their liveGfree line offers everything from grab-and-go lunch options to baking mixes and snacks and some of our favorite lifestyle bloggers rave about the selection.
Each week ALDI offers deals on goods for your home, car, and garden. ALDI Finds are only in stores for a limited time, so it’s always a treat to wander in and see what's up for grabs. In addition to deals on products for your home, you can often find great buys on clothing, tech accessories, and entertaining must-haves like the five-piece cheese board above.
ALDI bread, brownie, cake, and cornbread mixes have a cult following among bloggers. Their ultra affordable mixes (most are under $3*) taste great and make prepping for parties or dinner easy. Plus, much is said online about the store's high-quality, low-cost baking essentials such as flour, sugar, and baking powder.

Affordable Wine and Spirits
If you're a fan of the under $10 wine selection at other grocery stores, ALDI choices will be your new go-to's. The store offers plenty of delicious wines for $5* or less (yes, you read that correctly). Plus, you can pick up specialty drinks such as sparkling Moscato (perfect for parties) or one of their over 15 award-winning wines. While reading up on their sips selection, we found bloggers and journalists aplenty touting the affordable wine at ALDI as a must try!
