A few weeks ago we launched an Aldi Meal Plan where you could make 20 slow cooker “dump” meals for under $150.00. The response was amazing and within a day, I was already getting emails begging for a second plan! I am SO excited to provide another Aldi meal plan for you, this time you will make 20 meals at Aldi for $150 and every one of them are Slow Cooker Meals and can be prepped ahead of time!
My “touch each ingredient once” system for putting meals together has gotten RAVE reviews. I spent hours deconstructing each recipe to create 5 charts designed to make preparation as easy as possible.
It is HOT during the summer and we don’t really want to use the oven, SO we use our slow cooker a lot! We thought this would be super easy for you all, this way you can start dinner in the morning and go outside and enjoy your kids this summer without having to stress over dinner!
Keep in mind that prices vary per store, so yours may be a little bit higher or lower depending on the item. Additionally, meat items like the pork loin, whole chicken, ground beef etc. vary in weight and might not correspond exactly to what we estimated it will cost. However – the serving sizes are a little larger than the last meal plan, so most recipes will likely feed more like 6 people.
We priced it out, did our shopping and came in spending $147.63! You don’t have to get this all in one trip if that doesn’t work for your family. Many of these recipes you can also make ahead and freeze for a quick meal later on, we have noted that in the printable pack available below.
If you used it on my original dump meal plan, you know just how much time this saves!
Just because these recipes are easy to put together doesn’t mean that they aren’t awesome – because they are! Check out the recipes that you will be making:
If you are wondering about the green bag holders I used in the videos, you can get those here.
And here’s the shopping list needed to create all these meals:
