This Week at Aldi: The Aldi Weekly Ad for May 18, 2022

Last Updated on May 28, 2022


This Week at Aldi

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 patio accessories, lawn and garden supplies, plants, outdoor recreation, toys, apparel and accessories, assorted kitchen products, electronics, school and office supplies, and miscellaneous items for around the home.

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:

Belavi Outdoor Gas Fire Pit


  • Belavi Outdoor Gas Fire Pit, $169.99. This includes a burner lid, lava rocks, and cover. A propane tank is not included. It measures 28″ x 28″ x 24″ and features a control panel with pulse ignition and adjustable dancing flame with powerful 50,000 BTU heat output that delivers a clean, smokeless fire. This consists of a durable steel tabletop and decorative sling fabric base panels, and a matching lid included converts the unit into a side table. It’s fueled by a standard 20-lb. propane tank (not included). This is the second year we’ve seen Aldi sell this. The grocer offered it in 2021 but called it the Belavi Outdoor Gas Fire Table rather than a fire pit. You can read about it here.

Aldi Finds (Special Buy) Highlights:

Other patio accessories include:

  • Belavi Propane Patio Heater, $149.99. Electric ignition. Propane tank not included. Steel construction for a sleek style that complements your patio décor. Powerful 46,000 BTUs of heat to warm your friends on a brisk evening. Wheels included to attach to one side of the base for ease of movement.

Including a steel burner, works with a 20-lb. propane tank, stored internally (not included). Measures 32″ x 32″ x 88″. Considering that this is arriving in stores in May when weather is warming up in the U.S., this appears to have been a victim of supply chain snarls. Read more about the patio heater here.

  1. Has anyone managed to find the Easy Home Adjustable Height 2-Shelf Kit? I’ve been going every couple of days to check, and it hasn’t arrived, but also is not listed on Aldi’s delay page. I’ve been looking for a shelf just like this for so long, so I don’t want to give up, but am tired of making pointless trips to Aldi since we can’t call to inquire. If it’s come and gone, I’d like to know it’s time to give up. 🙂
