    I nip into Aldi a couple of times a week - handy for the bus home from work lol
    Usually scout round the fruit and veg esp their special offer ones. Then gammon or chicken, some of their ham's nice, love their reduced fat cheddar. Also get noodles as can do a pack in the micro at work - they're 3 syns but worth it to me for the fill-up!
    Always use their tinned toms, kidney + baked beans.
    My lad likes their choc hoop cereal and cats are happy with their vitacat :)

    The Jade Hey! Noodles with the Yakisoba sauce are delish and only 4 syns, great if you need something to have for a work lunch. The mushroom variety are 3.5 but avoid the green curry one like the plague as it's a whopping 10.5 syns :eek: x

    Your personal guide to the Syn values of over 38,000 everyday foods available at your local shops and supermarkets.
    Available by calling our Book Enquiry Line on 0844 892 0404 for £6.95 + £2 p&p. (Mon to Fri 9am to 5pm, calls are charged at national rate) think I may have to buy this one

    I've started shopping there lately. Potatoes this week 49p for 5kg! The oranges are 49p for 6 and are beautiful. You can sign up for emails which they send twice a week. (most of the other supermarkets do this too.)
    I get their frozen cooked chicken pieces,tinned tomatoes and pineapple, their cooked meats are good, and their lean mince. They had lobsters for £4.99 at Xmas! I like their couscous too, haven't pointed it tho.
    And their siana face wipes are good, 79p!
