I've tried to go before, but could never get a car park. It can become quite competitive on days when the specials come out.
That middle section does my head in. I always buy something I don't need. I nearly bought a caravan cover for crying out loud.
So today I was driving past the Aldi at our large local Mall (having just come from the budget green grocer) and because I was feeling all budgety (need to always feel like this) I turned my car into the driveway.
And immediately found a park. This has never happened to me before.
So this is what I observed:
It's very quiet. No muzak. Not a lot of talking. I think this is because you have to concentrate.
The first aisle is devoted to packaged processed foods. This is an aisle that obviously should be avoided and yet I couldn't help myself and picked up a few ready made packaged snacks for the lunch boxes.
|Prepackaged, processed goodness.|
|Same, same but different? But same.|
The fruit and veg section is not half bad. I think the Coles near our house might be taking me for a ride.
The purchase of 40 dishwasher tablets for less than Coles sells 20 Finish tablets was a major coup. Time will tell whether the dishwasher agrees with me.
Aldi isn't very big. And yet it sold almost everything I wanted. Which makes me think maybe Coles and Woolies are full of a lot of crap that I don't need that's just been put out to tempt me.
Of course it is...der.
Aldi, I'm coming back.
