Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme includes grilling gear, supplies and decor for the garden and yard, kitchen accessories, clothing, and some Earth Day-themed products such as a recycling bin and organic sheets. There is too much to even begin to list most of it here, so be sure to check the ad itself and/or stop by your local Aldi.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
Gardenline Tumbling Composter, $39.99. Aldi has sold stationary composters before, but I’ve never seen the store sell a tumbling composter. This one is 18.5 gallons, which seems a bit on the small side considering that I’ve been using a 6.5 cubic foot (about 48 gallons) Suncast tumbling composter for several years. My Suncast is falling apart, though, so I’ll be purchasing the Aldi composter to give it a try. It comes with a chamber-locking mechanism, a sliding door, and a two-year warranty, and it should make finished compost in four to six weeks.
