It’s not hard for Aldi shoppers to find more than a few items to splurge on every month. This January, shoppers may wonder which item, or items, should definitely be on their shopping list.

To uncover the answer, GOBankingRates spoke to a shopping expert and an Aldi representative. Each shared what’s worth buying this month. The next time you head out on an Aldi run, consider adding these must-haves into your grocery budget.

Runner-up: Ambiano LED Ultrasonic Humidifier With Aroma Diffuser

Starting January 3, shoppers can pick up the Ambiano LED Ultrasonic Humidifier with Aroma Diffuser at their local Aldi store.

Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst at, told GOBankingRates this humidifier is a must-have during the winter months thanks to its $14.99 price tag.

“Humidifiers can get expensive and this one is definitely going to be suitable for smaller spaces, so consider using it next to the bed or in your office to get the most benefits,” she recommended. “With winter being so dry, if you don’t have a humidifier on hand, you’re missing out.”

Runner-up: Park Street Deli Sweet Snack Selects

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to eat healthier, this pick is for you. Park Street Deli Sweet Snack Selects is an Aldi-exclusive that won the “On-The-Go Snack” category at 2023 Product of the Year USA.
