If you’ve ever shopped at Aldi, you probably know its central aisle, which has become an iconic supermarket in recent years. The home for what Aldi calls “specials” is filled with just about anything you might need, from cordless vacuum cleaners and silk pillowcases to fancy pet beds and even barbecues.
Offering an exciting mix of inexpensive products that cover a wide range of activities and hobbies such as sports, camping, DIY, beauty care and more, Aldi stores offer bargain shopping.
But if you want to skip the lines and be first in line, you can buy many of these offers online via the supermarket’s website as well. When you shop online, you can see which items are up for grabs before they hit the stores – which usually happens every Thursday and Sunday – and order them up to weeks in advance.
This week, we saw the return of Aldi children’s furniture and plenty of babywear and essentials at great prices, including a pair of cute shoes for just £ 6.99. Moreover, you can still get mitts on a duplicate Aldi from Apple’s first-generation AirPods, which will save you a whopping £ 80.
