How do I select the best deals? It's simple. Shopping at ALDI, we already know the quality is great. Therefore, I choose the best deals based upon price matching at other stores. These are the items that will save you the most money this week in comparison with normal retail value of the national brands.

The rest of the Ad for the Week Starting 10/28 and 10/31

National deals begin 10/31. Regional (In-Store) deals begin 10/28 and are bold.
However, some stores start their national deals the same day as the in-store.
To benefit from both ads, go shopping the 31st- the 3rd.
In-Store savings may vary by region.

Items to start hoarding for Thanksgiving are green. ;)

ALDI Recipe: Wine Mix-Ups

Many people enjoy wine with their dinner, but what if you just can't handle the taste or what if you want to make something nice for a crowd, but you don't have much money? Good news: It doesn't hurt to mix that wine with something to make a fun sparkling beverage for a crowd! With the holidays coming up, try mixing things up now to see what you like. Here are a few ideas to get your brain going...

First, choose your wine...then match it with a sparkling juice. (ALDI's sparkling juices taste even better than National brand sparkling juices.) I would also like to mention ALDI wines taste great and are very cheap! They even have a sweet red, that actually says "Sweet Red" on the bottle, so it should be easy to find. ALDI has many nice tasting wines for 2.99 - 6.99 a bottle! Next, choose a fruit for garnish, or mint leaves.

1. Sparkling Cider: Mix your favorite white wine, with apple juice, Add cinnamon schnapps and a cinnamon stick for a holiday feel! (Festive!)

2. Petite Pink: Mix red wine with sparkling cranberry and lemon juice, and garnish with mint leaves.
(A favorite of mine.)

3. French Blueberry: Mix white wine, with sparkling white grape juice, juice from half a lemon, and add blueberries to make it pretty. (Yum!)

4. Chamberry: Champagne + Cranberry Juice + 1 tsp. sugar. Add cranberries.

You can even throw a shot of gin in these for an extra punch. Gin is usually the best hard alcohol to go with in fruity drinks because it tastes more fruity than other hard alcohols.

You can also make little fruit kabobs and stick them in the drinks! Just another idea to get you thinking outside the box. Your plain old glass of wine, doesn't have to be so plain and boring. Especially when entertaining. Mix things up a bit. Come up with your own combinations and have fun with it.

Do you have a favorite combination? Leave your comment here!
