If you live near an Aldi and have yet to enter the doors of the German discount grocer, consider this your cue to head over immediately and enjoy some major savings on your next grocery bill. If you’re an Aldi regular (or superfan!) you probably already know all about the tasty snack steals, seasonal meal deals, and ingenious storage finds lurking throughout the store. But there’s one other thing I recommend you snag on your next trip — some double-duty decor.

While you’re there, don’t forget about perusing the lovely flower and gardening section. Just last week, Aldi dropped this beautiful hyacinth in a pinched glass vase (for only $3.79!), and this week, amidst the bleakness of winter, they have a second dose of spring waiting for you in the plant section with tulips in a glass vase

The sleek, cylindrical glass vase and three tulip bulbs are a pre-spring steal, priced at only $7.99. I chose the red and yellow combination tulips, and I opted for flowers that were on the cusp of blooming to maximize the enjoyment of bloom time. With various colors — pink, red, white, and yellow — to choose from, you’re sure to find a color that appeals to your taste. I couldn’t wait to get them home to display on my dining room table.

After a few weeks when your flowers have bloomed and begun to wilt, feel free to discard them, but then make sure to keep the stunning glass vase to use this spring and beyond. Fill it with fresh cut flowers, bright oranges or apples, colorful jelly beans, or with whole coffee beans and place a candle for a lovely aroma and ambiance in your kitchen or as a dining table centerpiece. You could also use it as a chic storage vessel for craft supplies, toiletries, or kitchen utensils. 

However you choose to reuse it, just make sure to hurry to your local Aldi — because fanatics know that seasonal finds like this won’t last long in the store.
