Oh my god, where to fucking start. Aldi, I heart you.  You do what it says on the box and provide me with good quality essentials at a reasonable cost. I was a convert way before it was accepted to …

    Made my day… AGAIN

  2. I’m a ‘secret’ addict too, esp when there is an aldi 5 min up the road from us…i think they should have a 10 items or less aisle though that would be cool because i feel much obliged to let people in before me if they only have a few items which is fine for one or two but one could get carried away with letting 5 or more people who have less than me & well I never get through if i keep doing that

  3. Oh I love this and I so relate! Some days I just don’t go in as I know I won’t ‘save’ money at all but rather buy a whole heap of wonderful things!

    What do you mean the crumpets are Crap? They are the best! Just like English ones that you can make super crunchy in the toaster! Love!

  5. Fortunately my neighbourhood is too posh to have an Aldi in it (yes, there is an entire protest group set up to stop Aldi in its expansionist tracks) so don’t have this problem. I did have that mind reading thing when I needed pillows last year. Sent husband and he too got seduced by the centre aisle.

        Thank you !!

  8. I love Aldi even more when they reduce the specials. They hide them everywhere so you have to hunt, and you never know if you are going to find cheap face cream next to a cut-price chain saw or dry ice machine. Genius!

    It’s hard when all you go to Aldi for is the next brochure and end up spending $100!

    I have just had a friend send me this link as they truely believed I wrote it!! I am a marketing mans dream and Aldi is my heroine!! My wife sent me to get “salad stuff” a little while ago and I came home with an electric guitar AND amp which is still yet to come out of its box. I wonder if Aldi items boxed will be worth more money in the future like the Star Wars figures! Anyway great article and can’t wait for the next one. Also I must add that I completely forgot to purchase the for mentioned “salad stuff” and had to make another trip.

    Why doesn’t Aldi provide shopping baskets. I brought 2 of their $5.00 baskets 1 for both my mother and I. My mother walks assisted with a walker and puts the baskets from other shops on the walker. First day I took her to Aldi we were both confronted by the checkout person that we had to purchase the baskets. I explained I had purchased them the week before as no baskets are provided. The checkout operator didn’t believe me so thankfully I had the brains to carry the receipt with me and produced it for her. To her comment we expect customers to buy a lot of items. I spoke to another staff member about this issue and he couldn’t believe her comment. I’m not impressed. I shouldn’t have to produce a receipt every time I shop with the basket and self serve sucks. Its not a wonderful experience. You are processed through like cattle. You have to wait while others are packing their groceries and what about the elderly. Their not as fast as others. Not impressed at all with Aldi and the rude customer service at Woodcroft.

    I don’t know who enjoys shopping at Aldi the most Me or My Husband. Only problem I have is when I find a great product eg a fabulous body wash with Argan Oil by Lacura and when I want to buy another one they don’t have it. BUGGAR
