    Great What/What Not to Buy at Lidl, Aldi and Netto Hunt 7th Nov 05 at 11:35 AM
    Update 14 Febuary

    This thread has now been turned into an updated article. Click here to read the What's hot and what's not at Aldi/Lidl/Netto article.

    These three supermarkets are massively cheaper than mainstream supermarkets, yet there's a snobbery about using them. To help others save this hunt is for both 'what' and 'what not to' buy at Lidl, Aldi and Netto.

    Obviously if you're skint then you may need to buy all things there, but this is more about compiling views on what to use them for and what not to.
