My partner started the Aldi obsession. He is constantly at Aldi checking out the current special buys and buying most of his groceries there, the catalogues are always in his car and he is always report different purchases to me.
I think their sausages are the best, other than that I dont really go there enough to keep on top of what the real bargains are; the special buys that dont sell that aldi mark down.
To know these I have to rely on what Andrew is telling me..."there are so many of X left, and they are $20 off" etc.
My first purchase at Aldi was a Rowing Machine, and boy do I love it. When I had a back injury and couldnt use it I was really down...
I didnt buy anything at Aldi for ages after that, then recently I need a postal and pigeon scale and Andrew suggest their nutrition scales...They work a treat (as long as they are on a level surface!), they are p to 5kg too, so my post and pigeon (he needs weighing once a week) are all taken care of.
My latest buy is the cat scratching post that I bought as a Bird climbing thingy! it was just $20 compared to about $50-$80 in the pet stores. The birds so far are afraid of it but they will get used to it, probably need to hang a stack of treats off of it!
