Just seen an Aldi ad for lamb at xmas. Their prices are £2 a kilo higher than Morrisons (I've just bought a leg). Their other meat prices are pretty high too. I thought they were supposed to be cheaper?

Their prices have slowly been increasing, same as lid, seems like the bargin basement prices only applied as they were establishing themselves.

Was it Aldi or LIDL that went all-organic on fresh produce?

I've switched away from supermarkets for fruit and a veg and meat to try and reduce outgoings, in favour of local green grocers and butchers, I'm finding I'm saving a fair bit and the quality is better(sometimes on meat, price is similar but better quality). Not sure how much of an option that might be for you where you are?

For £2 I would trust the quality of meat at Aldi much more than Morrison's. That said, we are having lamb, but a casserole and so I got a couple of neck fillets dirt cheap as they're so out of the norm for right now :lol:

We are going to try using our local butchers for our meat instead of the big supermarkets. It's a bit more expensive but hopefully won't have as much water injected into it. We see the meat being delivered as whole animals, rather than shrink wrapped stuff. Lets hope 2018 doesn't bring any more contamination scares.

I'm a very canny shopper and be it groceries or engine parts, I have no allegiance or loyalty to anyone. I work hard for my money and I spend it where I like. Must admit, I use ALDI for most things but buy my meat from an independent.

Theres a saying a mate used to say which tends to hold true - "If you want car parts, go to a bike shop and if you want bike bits...." . Not meant to be taken in a literal sense but theres merit in it in terms of getting fleeced. Shop around. When the price is right, buy it, not when you actually need it. I have a new rad, pads, shoes, wheel cylinders, clutches, you name it. I'm going to have to buy them eventually anyway. Nothing worse than a vehicle being out of action on a Sunday with Halfords your only option :shock:
