The creation of the ALDI meal plan really started when my husband and I were in $40,000 of debt and we were running at a $1,000 deficit each month. Something needed to change . The fastest way to cut down our deficit and see immediate results was at the grocery store. I started shopping deals, clipping coupons, and taking advantage of stock-up sales.
But then, ALDI.
With ALDI, it's like everything is always on sale! I started wondering Why is Aldi so cheap? Once I became an ALDI convert and was saving big bucks, I still needed to save time.
My husband and I created our first ALDI Meal Plan just for us. We were trying to cut bills, time, and stress for ourselves. However, it didn't take us long to realize that these meal plans could help more people than just us. It also gave us drive to improve them, make them easier to understand and come up with more and more awesome recipes that actually taste good in a crockpot.
A Freezer Cooking Dump Recipes Plan is the only way I know of to make 20 dinners in under 3 hours for $165. Yup. You read that right.
I can't imagine anything that will reduce your grocery bill, time, or stress more than that.

In it's simplest terms, Meal planning is figuring out what you're going make for meals in advance. You make all of these decisions at once so they aren't looming over you on Wednesday at 4:30pm when the crazy dinner scramble hits. Here is an in-depth
Here is an in-depth explanation of the how and why to meal plan that is worth your time, but let me give it to you in broad strokes:
Freezer cooking is making meals or putting recipes together with the purpose of freezing for later. You make them to cook at a different time. Go ahead. Thank “you of the past” for doing all the work beforehand.
The Crockpot (or slow cooker) is freezer cooking's best friend. They can make magic together. But here's the thing – with Freezer cooking, you can't just make and freeze any ole' recipe. The freezer can do strange things to certain ingredients. Not only that, not every recipe works in a crockpot. The crockpot can destroy a meal if it wasn't made with slow cooking in mind.
Believe me, I found out the hard way.
But Freezer Cooking and using the crockpot are both so darn convenient, that I just had to make them work in my favor.
