    Wow what a nice change- 5min drive instead of 20 (when theres no traffic) and didnt have to add up as i went along! Did use more cash as no mocs but only bout 7 more than my last tesco shop as the prices were cheaper (but saved some on petrol and ink!) Need some of those 5 off lidl mocs now that were about last summer!

    Ooh - might have to visit Lidl instead of (or as well as!) Sainsbury's when I'm next in Northern Ireland. We do have Aldi and Lidl down here, which are way cheaper than Tesco, but it's still dearer than the prices folk are quoting for UK stores. I'll curry favour with DH by getting him some cheap Bishop's Finger.
    I love being a loser!

    More importantly, how much STRESS did you save? That's worth quite a lot.

    The pineapples are usually 99p each.
    Also this week the Pilgrims choice cheddar cheese is 1.99 for 500 grams in Lidl.
    I find that they usually restock their shelves a couple of hours before closing so that's when they put out the freshest produce and bread.

Till ops, would very often be running off to chuck a pallet out while a customer loaded the belt.Very often I'd have a queue either side and be serving 2 or 3 people at the same time. I helped open quite a few other welsh stores as well, ahhh, it was fun....


    When I met hubby he was manager of Lidl ,sounds very similar,but don't think you would ever hear him saying it was "fun" !! lol

    I have a lidl 5 mins away. I do shop in there for some bits but the no name stuff tends to make me a it nervous - dont want to try it in case its cr@p. But I have to say some unbranded things I have found to be good in there are:

    Coleslaw - about 49p for a vat
    tie handle bin bags - 15 or 20 for 1.19 - really strong for kitchen bins
    Millionaires shortbread and little choc filled tubes - yummy!!! 99p ish each
    cheap frozen sausages - just over 1 for 20
    Waffles - 99p ish
    cimarosa chardonnay 3.79 bottle and is yummy
    beans and sausages in tins - 30p ish yummy
    Fresh meat is cheap and good quality
    Fruit and veg as above

    Anyone else know of any good stuff?

    Their frozen fish is good. Also the salmon fish cakes with dill are very tasty and big pieces of salmon in them. I think they are usually 1.50 for a pack of 5 or 6 but sometimes they have them on offer at 1.
