    Ok so Ive never stepped foot in an Aldi before and after seeing an advert on TSR for it (and realising that my status as a poor student isn't going to get better any time soon) I'm thinking I might give it a go.

    I'm kinda scared though, what is Aldi like? I don't really fancy buying crap food

    Aldi is fine, it's got a very good reputation in Germany.

    The people who work at the Aldi near me fling your food through the tills soooo fast. If you have a trolley load you need to put it at the other end to catch it in.

    You'll often find the quality at Aldi surpasses that of Tesco/Sainsburys et al.

    Sure you may not be able to get EVERYTHING you need, but don't let the name fool you into thinking it's all crap.

    The only scary part is the till, they dont give you time to pack your bags so you just put them back in the trolly and pack by the window. Its crazy fast!! Otherwise the food is great, cereal is nicer than branded, meat is good and they sell random useful things like skiing gear, yoga mats etc so look out for a bargain

    I like Aldi better than other supermarkets, you can get so much more for your money. Some of the cereals are a bit hit and miss, but other than that, its absolutely fine.

    This. Specially Selected as good as anything bar MandS for me. And even betters that on occasions. Good special buys too. The prices are cheap because the store isn't posh and they rush you through the till, not that you can't get good stuff.

    It is amazing
    Only downside is no bags
    Bring your own or pay more money for bags

    Honestly I am the same, or atleast I was :lol:

    Loads of ALDI's cooked meats, like sliced ham, whole chicken, sausages etc is better than most of ASDA, Sainsbury and tescos, for a cheaper price.

    Just get stuff like milk and bread from ALDI if it scares you that much!

    I meant to add to your shopping list, since they are essentials that can't really go wrong. I wasn't suggestive you just live off a diet of milk and bread :lol:

    Aldi in Germany is decent, its the equivalent of a Saintsbury's.
    Over here it's an extreme discounter. I'd rather shop in Saintsbury's!
