Buy It & Try It 

Liquid Egg Whites
Store I Purchase At: Aldi
Typical Price: $3-$5
Where In The Store: Seasoning section
Tips:
1. Every time I go grocery shopping this is something that I'm throwing in my cart! Great to add to whole eggs for breakfast or as a replacement for whole eggs in baking!
2. You can pretty much get liquid egg whites at any grocery store these days but I stick with Aldi because the flavor/product is consistent and the pricing is always the best when compared to the competition

Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunks
Store I Purchase At: Aldi
Typical Price: $3-$5
Where In The Store:Organic or baking aisle
Tips:
1. If you're vegan or have any other allergies, this brand is a really great and delicious option! Free of pretty much every allergy you could think of yet doesn't compromise the delicious taste of chocolate we all love!
2. They have everything from chocolate minis, chunks, bars, cookies, etc and most of their products can be found in the organic section at Jewel!

Stevia
Store I Purchase At: Aldi
Typical Price: $2-$4 depending on size packet you get!
Where In The Store: Baking aisle
Tips:
1. If you're looking for a sugar substitute that is natural, stevia is the route to go! Definitely my favorite alternative and I love that it actually comes from a plant and is not made with artificial ingredients
2. You can buy individual packets of it, which I buy for my coffee, but then you can also buy a jumbo bag for baking, which I usually also purchase!
3. Many times the package of stevia will say that it can be substituted 1:1 compared to sugar but I will say if you google it--the one thing everyone says is not to follow that. Stevia is many times sweeter than sugar so it's best to do about a tbsp for every 1/2-1 cup of sugar and taste test and add as you go. If you add too much stevia you'll find your baked goods to almost have a bitter after taste (trust me I've made the mistake a time or two…or 7)
