Why Aldi? I've recently been trying to cut back on all my expenses and decided that switching to a cheaper no-frills supermarket could be the way forward. We decided Aldi would be the supermarket of choice because it is the closest to us. Is it cheaper? We switched from Sainsbury's to Aldi ... Read review

You can save a serious amount of money by shopping at Aldi.

AdvantagesCheap and good quality.

DisadvantagesLimited range. No deli counter. No multi-buy deals or loyalty scheme.

"...the way forward. We decided Aldi would be the supermarket of choice because it is the closest to us. ==Is it cheaper?== We switched from Sainsbury's to Aldi a few months ago. Whilst most items seemed to be cheaper, it was hard to tell whether or not we were saving a significant amount of money. My other half and I have always played the guess the total game as our groceries are going through the checkout. We used to be quite good at this when we ..." Read review

Do you remember when beans were 3p?

AdvantagesWell laid out stores, high quality for low prices.

DisadvantagesElectrical goods can be an unknown quantity, not enough checkout staff.

"Shopping in Aldi is a much more pleasurable experience than it used to be. When the stores first opened in 1990 I remember them being sawdust-filled, warehouses full of strange continental foodstuffs. However, I also remember them being a major part of the "bean war" on which tins of beans dropped to 3p! Aldi stores have come a long way since then and no longer have the "shame value" attached to them during my childhood. No longer do children make ..." Read review

Booze Cruise to Aldi! Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent value for money, everything in same place

Disadvantagescan't do a whole shop there yet

"Aldi is a German supermarket. Every branch in the World are to the exacting same size, spec and layout. They stock non branded food and goods and they can knock the spots off even M&S for quality and flavour. I'M NOT GOING THERE! ---------------------------------------- The shops were basic, like the old days of Kwik Save when you had boxes stacked up and the staff had to memorise everything in the store as there were no prices attached/on the ..."

Aldi ~ Good quality, cheap food ~ why pay more than you have to?

AdvantagesExcellent value for money items

DisadvantagesStill some things you cannot get

"Aldi ~ In this present financial climate, when money is a little tight for a lot of people, I decided that it was time for me to tighten my belt too, when it comes to the weekly shop. I always get my branded items from Asda or Tesco as there are some things, like particular brands of coffee for example, that I will not compromise on and will not buy the shops own. However for general things like my fruit and vegetables for example I would ..." Read review

You can't really go wrong with Aldi!

AdvantagesCheap, good quality, plenty of choice though not in frozen goods

DisadvantagesPrices are not so good on meat and frozen goods, no fresh fish

"...not very far away from Aldi so I have popped in a few times! The Store: My local store is in Bell Green in Coventry. It has a large, free car parking area, trolleys outside which take a pound coin or one of them things alot of us now have on our keyrings. There are large automatic opening doors enabling us to not have to fight to get in and of course allows wheelchair and pushchair access. The store is laid out reasonably well with quite large ..."
