Last Updated on February 18, 2022
Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi weekly 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 is gardening supplies (that are friendly for indoor gardening during the winter), assorted frozen foods, kitchen products, various items for around the house, school or office supplies, self care products, makeup, clothing, tools, and toys and accessories for kids.
Remember that Aldi may still be stealth releasing products due to supply chain snarls. Likewise, some Aldi Finds may be delayed arriving in stores because of shipping issues retailers around the world are facing.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Gardenline Dual-Head Plant Grow Light, $34.99. This is the first time we’ve seen Aldi sell a grow light, although Aldi did sell a hydroponic garden system that included lighting in the spring of 2021. This grow light does not come with anything but the light. It features full-spectrum lights for all stages of growth, nine dimming levels, and an Auto ON/OFF timer and includes an interchangeable solid base or desk clip and 360° flexible gooseneck. It’s for use with indoor plants, flowers, and vegetables. Full spectrum lights include red, blue, and red/blue for seeding, vegetative growth, and flowering/budding. Read our full review here.
