Swapping new rugs in your home can immediately change the whole room's atmosphere but can come with a hefty price tag — unless you stop by Aldi. 

This summer, they are offering four different boho-style patterns on large 5-foot by 7-foot rugs from Huntington Home that can be used either indoors or outdoors, making them perfect for those who like to change up the decor regularly. The best part? They are only $39.99.

Grab a boho-style hallway carpet to match the area rugs available at Aldi this summer. These Huntington Home rugs are suitable for indoor or outdoor use, like their larger counterparts, and have the same four pattern options. 

At only $14.99, these long rugs are easily affordable as an add-on purchase to ensure your home always has matching rugs, even if you change spaces. 

Food chopper

Do you ever wonder why, in the year 2024, we can have artificial intelligence read a book for us but not chop vegetables? Chopping food for meal prep is time-consuming and annoying, but Crofton Food Choppers can cut (pun intended) that time down to nearly nothing. 

They cost $9.99 and can hold just over five cups of food, which can be chopped in four different sizes and include a cleaning tool. This is a must-have for any kitchen. 

Get a protection plan on all your appliances

Did you know if your air conditioner stops working, your homeowner’s insurance won’t cover it? Same with plumbing, electrical issues, appliances, and more.

Whether or not you’re a new homeowner, a home warranty from Choice Home Warranty could pick up the slack where insurance falls short and protect you against surprise expenses. If a covered system in your home breaks, you can call their hotline 24/7 to get it repaired.

For a limited time, you can get your first month free with a Single Payment home warranty plan.

Everybody knows drinks taste better in fancy cups, and Aldi offers Crofton brand acrylic glasses that provide a high-end aesthetic combined with durable and practical functionality for $5.99. 

The drinkware comes in four packs and features intricate designs reminiscent of crystal but made from acrylic, so they are dishwasher safe and less likely to shatter. They hold 9.5 ounces and will instantly glam up any social gathering. 

Kitchen towels

Now is a great time to toss those grungy old dishcloths and towels and grab some new sets by Huntington Home. They are available in three colors and feature a basic grid design that is easy to match with various decors.

The kitchen and the dish towels have coordinated color schemes that allow for a mix-and-match approach that keeps the aesthetic fresh and fun. Snatch these for just $3.99. 

Solar fire bowl

Looking for a soft, magical glow that flickers like a firelight without any of the associated dangers of an open flame? Look no further than the Belavi solar-powered fire bowl. This clever product comes in two metallic finishes that house a simulated flame lasting up to six hours and recharge in the sun. 

They are also weather-resistant, making them ideal for indoor or outdoor use. They are sized just under 10 inches and are available for $16.99 each. 

High-velocity fan

Summer is usually a terrible time to find out you need a new fan, but not this summer! Ambiano High-Velocity Fans are a 20-inch blast of refreshing air pumped out by brushless motors, making them much quieter than expected. They feature a compact design and adjustable tilt and are available in a black or silver finish for $39.99. 

Globe string lights

Lighting is a subtle yet powerful ambiance enhancer, and swapping out different string lights can make a whole room feel brand-new again. Casalux Globe String Lights are available in traditional clear glass or a multi-colored option, but both are safe for indoor and outdoor use.

Up to three sets of lights can be connected to cover any size space that would benefit from new lighting options, and each set is just $9.99. 

Paella pan

Paella pans might seem like a niche category of cookware, and many can be put off by the high price point of a single pan unlikely to receive daily use — but Crofton is a go-to solution for those who want to expand their cookware without a large monetary commitment. 

For just $9.99, you can start experimenting with your own paella creations in a top-of-the-line cookware piece with a combination of features that can compete with the most expensive alternatives.

These paella pans are coated with a superior ceramic alternative to Teflon that doesn't release harmful toxins, makes for an even better nonstick surface, and is rapidly becoming the preferred standard.
