The Frugality Is Free family is thrilled to be hosting our third holiday party with lots of great holiday goodies from ALDI. Today was shopping day, and I had carefully planned out a very detailed shopping list with holiday party food. Since we do most of our party shopping at ALDI due to the low prices, I almost know the prices by heart, which is a big help.

ALDI soda

One thing about holiday shopping at ALDI is that you need to be prepared to improvise, as the items in the ALDI holiday catalog come in limited supplies, and the store might just be out. I was hoping to pick up several bottles of Nature’s Nectar Sparkling Juice, some Chocoeur Chocolate Coins and mini eclairs, holiday items that always have success at our party, but our store was out. Instead, I decided to pick up two packages of the Belmont Petite Cheese Cake Samplers, and we picked up some Andes chocolate as well. One of the kids coming to our party is allergic to peanuts, and she has gluten allergy as well, so I was thrilled to see that the Andes chocolate was both peanut and gluten free.

  1. […] Out of the 15 grown ups with children, we had 8 moms show up with 15 kids plus our own four kids. Thanks to ALDI , there were plenty of food, drinks and special treats for everyone, and we even included tableware in our $100 party budget. […]
