Whenever we do a shop at Aldi, I end up getting all the food whilst my other half lingers around all of the special buys. They always manage to have something we absolutely definitely need ..ok want.
I read the weekly leaflet to find out if there is anything I fancy and then I try to get there on the first day of the promotion to make sure I get it.. Because the problem is that sometimes the deals are so good they fly out which can lead to huge disappointment.
In the last few months we have bought a carpet washer ( for approximately £30 less than we could have bought it elsewhere ) am ironing board with a built in extension plug ( a surprise bonus ) and I bought THE most comfortable pair of trainers just after New Years. I wore them for a 6 hour Danceathon and ahem nearly everybody around me was moaning about sore feet and I was all bouncy and comfy in my £14.99 shoes ( which scanned through at £9.99 ) woop. Plus they are bright pink and look rather cool. Oh and we bought a king size duvet..and their foodie special buys too. Ok we may buy their special buys a lot.
We have also been lucky enough to have been sent some of the more recently special buys to try out:
I loved the selection on offer for the Baking Special Buys:
The digital measuring jug is especially useful and I use it ALL the time:
We have also been reviewing some of the hiking products which are in store right now including these fab jackets priced at £29.99:
The Trekking Jacket is both warm and waterproof, thanks to its 3 layer fabric and membrane construction. In styles for both men and women and fit to fight off the strongest of storms, it has a fully adjustable hood and a storm flap. Not only is this jacket waterproof but windproof too. We have had such glorious weather lately that we haven’t had much of a chance to try them out, other than a brief wet and windy school run but we live in Wales so that will change soon I’m sure.
In store this week they have running gear, heart monitors as well as polarised sunglasses amongst all their usual goodies. Go check them out and find out more about the upcoming special buys here.
