I've heard so much great stuff about Aldi. So a few months ago decided to give it a try. We usually spend between £60-70 a week in Tesco or asda. Went to Aldi and spent....... £63. No saving at all. Decided to give it another try, after reading so many people on here manage to save so much money. So, went along today, found it v stressful as the till assistant practically threw the stuff at us down the conveyor belt. Finally git to pay and ........ £63 again. What am I doing wrong?

I shop at aldi just for the fact 6 eggs cost 53p less than MrS, and cheerios over a pound less! 50/50 bread 20p less,4 pinter milk, 20p less-
these little amounts on things I buy weekly add up
plus there is less choice so I don't start randomising
super six fruit and veg can be good.

definitely, the one MAJOR way of saving money on groceries was meal planning, without that nothing would have changed.

maybe do a one month challenge with the meal planning-the winner gets the savings smile

Not sure why it is costing you the same. When I shop there I always save.
