Pembrook Kitchen Calendars are Coming to Aldi

Pembrook Kitchen Calendar

This post is an open thread

Planners and calendars have a bit of a cult following at Aldi.

At different times, the grocer sells several varieties of planners and calendars, including some basic hardback planners that are “date agnostic” and allow you to write in dates so you can use the planner any time of year. I picked up a few of these planners earlier this year and use them to chart weekly tasks and accomplishments.

Aldi also sometimes sells spiral-bound planners that feature specific themes such as parenting, wellness, and affirmation, or even student planners. Many Aldi fans like these planners because they feature page spreads that display the full months and allow for some longer-term planning.

On a different but related note, Aldi also sells some quality, durable wall calendars usually around the New Year. I’ve used them in the past and liked them.

The most recent type of calendar/planner to show up at Aldi offers a unique twist and is specially designed for use in the kitchen.

What We Know:

Pembrook Kitchen Calendar

The Pembrook Kitchen Calendar costs $4.99 at the time of publication.

This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi won’t ship it to you after it sells out at your local store. The Aldi ad states it may not be available in all locations. Since we are into the third month of the year and this calendar starts in January, it’s likely that this kitchen calendar has been affected by shipping delays and product shortages affecting all retailers.

From what we can tell looking at photos of the calendars in the weekly Aldi ad, these appear to have a hole on top so they can be hung on a wall in your kitchen.

Here’s more information about the calendar, according to Aldi:

  • Available in 4 designs: Black, Gray and White, Flora, or Kitchen Utensils
  • Features a weekly overview on each page with writing room to plan out your schedule
  • Measures 11.75″ W x 8.25″ H
  • Features perforated to-do lists on each page
  • Includes a bonus kitchen tip noted on each page

The calendars have space to write a weekly shopping list. In addition, the space allotted for each day looks like it can be used to write out schedules and appointments, or it might be a good spot for writing daily menu plans. Weekly kitchen tips include how to reheat pizza in a skillet or how to get a “squeaky clean” cutting board. The various designs available are attractive and interactive, and these calendars certainly caught our eye.

What We Don’t Know:

We have not yet used one of these kitchen calendars, so we don’t know for sure how helpful they are or how durable they are. Our goal with open thread posts is to provide a space for readers to share about their experiences with a product.

  1. I bought one of these last year and although I love the layout, and the fact that it’s compact and user friendly, the seam on the top split after several uses. I still used it and was pretty satisfied with it overall 🙂 It does really help with meal planning. When I didn’t see them offered at Aldi this year, I went in search of one at another store. I did find one that isn’t dated, which is cool, but it’s smaller and doesn’t have as much writing area. I’ll probably try to grab one at Aldi and save the other one. I’ll just give the kids the older, unused pages to draw on!

  2. Last year I bought 2 and they both fell apart. I won’t be purchasing one this year.
