After the good reviews I've read on here we decided to bite the bullet and give Aldi a try.
My normal weekly shop is between £70-£80 and my Aldi one was £35. I wasn't impressed with the fruit, I thought it was expensive compared to Asda, 4 nectarines were £1.59 compared to £1 in Asda, the bananas were more expensive in Aldi as well. Also got kids yoghurts in Asda as I didn't like their selection.
I still had to go to Asda where I spent £20 but its still worked out cheaper.

Thats a good saving, I want to try Aldi but we don't have one near us!
well done. i really must make more effort to do this now im off work, but i do the same and still end up in asda. not sure how easy doing both shops with 2 kids in tow will be. i usually order on line for ease.

m-l we have one right on our doorstep so I've got no excuse not to use it when we are trying to pay off debts.
MC - It is a pain going to both shops but once I get used to what I can get in Aldi then it should be easier.

You've made a good saving despite having to go to Asda as well. It's a bit of a trek to get to the nearest Aldi to me.

I did start to use Aldi but I agree it is a pita to go there and then to Tesco for the other bits too. I do tend to still do it though.

I thought I was shopping at Aldi but it was Lidl!
The tomotoes are lush and just 49p a packet - 80p in Tesco
They didnt have much I needed in today though!

I need to do a shop today, was planning on going to Tesco but I might try lidl (aldi is miles from us) after reading this!

Weekender, I always find I can never do a full shop in lidl, where as with aldi I can pretty much.

I used to split the shop too. Part Aldi Part tesco but then I just changed what I bought so it's all Aldi. It hink this is a great step in the right direction. Worth the time and effort for that saving x
