The Near-Free Aldi Run That's Stunning TikTok
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.
