The Near-Free Aldi Run That's Stunning TikTok
By MIKALA LUGEN
As prices run high, Aldi is one of the best stores to get your weekly shopping done from, thanks to their budget-friendly items. According to CNBC, you can get all your food and meals for just $32 at Aldi, but one TikTok user shocked the internet by buying their weekly groceries at the German store practically for free.
TikTok user @costoflivingcrisistips stunned the world when they posted a video of how they shop for about $5 a week at Aldi in the United Kingdom. The video shows the selection of long grain rice, pasta sauces, bourbon cream biscuit cookies, bread, corn flakes, and rice pudding for a shocking total of £4.97 ($5.35).
Although the hack is great for those in the U.K., users called out the inconsistency of Aldi prices in different countries; "It's way more expensive in Germany," said one user, "Aldi in the Netherlands is waaay more expensive," said another. While you won’t get a week’s worth of meals for $5 in the U.S., there's still something to be said about Aldi's ridiculously low prices.
