Default What did you buy at Aldi this week?

Chocolate Hob Nobs
Chocolate Digestives
Blackcurrant & Liquorice sweets
Haribo sour gums
Yorkshire tea bags
Tin Pea and Bacon soup

I wonder why they have started with this British week? Maybe it's to see the amount of interest and then they will start shipping in the likes of Quavers and Walkers Smoky Bacon Crisps!!

Default Re: What did you buy at Aldi this week?

Chocolate Digestives
Chocolate Hobnobs
Hobnobs
Fruit Salad and black jacks
Mixed sweets bag (including dab lolly, candy sticks, refreshers etc etc)

I also got a sandwich toaster for 25 bucks and Kporte got himself an Ipod player/alarm clock as he a bugger for sleeping in in the morning..

I have already texted our Vivienne to tell her that they have small 2 drawer metal filing cabinets coming in on Thursday. She wants 3 (the greedy cow) and I want 1. It is possible I will have to ask the ex to do a trip there on the Thursday morning..

Last Thursday I made Kporte knock out several oaps to get me the small round convection oven which they have for 40 bucks. I bought 2. Don't ask why. I got all consumer-fever as I walked in.

Next week I am going to a AA meeting (aldi anon) and possibly filing (scuse the pun) for bankruptcy...

From memory they do at least one, possibly two British Weeks every year. No been in for weeks, nothing's appealed in the brochure. Only thing I get from there regularly are the frozen yorkshire puds. The girls love them as a quick snack and they're not bad if I can't be bothered to make my own with a roast.

They are damn good those things.... I paid 59 bucks for mine, as we use it at least twice a week.

Hmmm those Metal draw things sound Irristable..... wonder what I could use them for !!

Did you see the computer they have next week.... I just wonder where I might fit the damn thing as we've got 3 already .... plus two laptops.

My wife got a packet of Choccy Digestives. I wonder how many she can fit in at once.

I'm walking tomorrow with my club - will pop in and grab a swag of sherberts on the way home - likewise as many will fit in.

Oh yeah I was looking at the vac too, as I had to leave my lovely one behind in England. I was gonna bring it in my sea freight but the removalasists told me AQIS would probably charge some exorbitant rate to check it and the dust out..........
