We hosted a neigborhood summer party with an ALDI Burger Bar this week, so the boys and I went ALDI party shopping. With a guest list of 12 people, we had a budget of $100, and we were able to get a lot of great party foods at ALDI. I had created a menu with the help of the ALDI Summer Catalog, and shopping at ALDI was both easy and quick. The smiling employees, the affordable prices and the high-quality products ensures that ALDI is my family’s first place for party shopping.

We were planning on getting a Gardenline Flextub for our party drinks, but they had been so popular that there were no more left at our local ALDI store. Since we had some money left in our budget, I let the boys choose one of the cool warter playthings for the party instead. After some careful considerations and debating, they finally decided that the WHAM-O Slip and Slide was perfect for the Waterpark themed backyard party.

ALDI WHAM-O Slip 'N Slide

WhamO Slip and Slide $12.99

Tax $1.72

Total spent on party foods at ALDI $99.93

I went to my two regular food stores to see what the prices were there, and the savings by shopping for our party at ALDI were quite impressive.  I did not include the slip and slide, the cutlery and the napkins in this comparison due to not finding comparable items.

If I had bought all of the above products at our local superstore, I would have spent $33 more for all of the above groceries.

If I had bought the above items at our local grocery store, I would have spent $39 more.
