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 Sunday.
This week’s theme is outdoor play, Mexican or Tex-Mex food highlights, camping gear, auto accessories, patio furniture and accessories, houseplants, bird feeding supplies, kitchen products, bathroom accessories, electronics, cleaning appliances, candles, school supplies, apparel, and home goods or dorm room gear.
Aldi is still stealth releasing some products, placing them on shelves without advertising them. This is most likely because of continuing supply chain snarls. Also, keep in mind that if you don’t see an advertised product in your local store, don’t assume your store won’t get it; it may simply be delayed.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Bee Happy Swurfboard, $49.99. This is the first time we’ve seen Aldi sell anything like this, and it looks like a lot of fun. This includes a carry bag, tree straps, carabiners, rope, and handles. It’s made from 100% oakwood and can hold up to 200 lbs. Aldi states this is for ages 8+. Read more about the swing here.

We bought the countertop compost bin which is a different design that the one you reference in the link above. It does not have a latching, hinged lid so the lid must be totally lifted off (usually with wet hands because we’re cooking or washing dishes) to put scraps in. My county sells a latching, hinged countertop compost bin for $10 and I wish I’d bought that.
It didn’t come with a second charcoal filter and the entire filter and the perforated plastic circle that holds the filter into place kept falling off the lid into the bucket, so we had to tape it into place.
I’d give it a B or B-. It does look good on the counter and holds a lot but it the bag inside gets too full it breaks when you lift it out.
Maybe you own this countertop compost bin from Aldi? https://www.aldireviewer.com/crofton-countertop-compost-bin/
For what it’s worth, I don’t use filters or bags in my countertop bin. If you’re regularly emptying the bin into your larger outdoor bin, you shouldn’t have problems with bugs or odors. After emptying the bin, I just squirt some dish soap in and give it a good rinsing.
