Being away at the weekend mean't I missed my Sunday yellow sticker shop.

We went to Aldi for a change on Monday morning. I really don't enjoy shopping and paying full price, but I have to say I am really impressed with Aldi, it is extremely good value.

We spent £49.78, which is a really big shop in one go for us, we did get lots for our money though.






At the start of the month I also had to stock up on toilet rolls and our favourite butter which was on offer.

So it is only the 7th of the month and I have spent £65.68.

But have plenty to keep us going for a while, the freezer and the cupboards are still well stocked.

  1. I have tried my best shopping in Aldi but for some reason it doesn't seem to agree with me. I don't really know why. I have another family member who swears by doing their shopping there. When I have tried before I don't seem to spend any different than at my regular supermarket and have never managed to get everything on my list which was very frustrating. You seem to have got a lot for your money and don't worry that you have spent a lot so far this early in the month as the food is going to last you a long time. X

    1. They don't really sell the well known brands there, I love Morrison's but I don't mind going there once in a while, I will make it last.

    2. I'm the same with Aldi, so many people think it's the best thing ever but I have really struggled to find everything I want and didn't find much that was cheaper than I can buy it elsewhere. I nip in occasionally for the odd thing but for the amount I save it's not worth it for me. I do feel like the odd one out when I say that though!

    3. I thought it was good but I wouldn't say it's the best thing ever, I do prefer Morrison's.

  2. I haven't tried Aldi, but shopped just the once at Lidl and it was a waste of money as I didn't like any of the weekly shop. The nearest Aldi is in a very awkward to get to area, whether on foot or by car, and is always absolutely heaving by all accounts, so I'd be more likely to go to Morrisons on the other end of the bus stop. You seem to have done rather well. Have you shopped there much before?

    1. It is always heaving your right, , Aldi is very similar to Lidl I don't go very often at all, Morrison's has always been my favourite.

  3. We don't have a local Aldi, I have to drive 28 miles for our nearest one so not cost effective. I shop occasionally at Lidl as the long life milk is cheaper in there.

    1. No that isn't cost effective, due to where we use to live we had to drive 24 miles to the nearest supermarket.

  4. I am always surprised by how much you get for your money at these supermarkets, we always come home with loads. Don't shop much in the main supermarkets anymore.

  5. I shop at Aldi sometimes, they don't have everything I need. Usually spend around the £30 mark. Their nuts are an ok price.

    1. Your right they don't have everything we often need, we shop around and always seek the best prices, that's why I know longer like to do a big shop in one place. Back to yellow stickers next week.
