We do because we have no shops. A car journey every time and hate shopping of any kind, so once a week is more than enough. Have to work on eventuality of not being able to get out including getting snowed in over winter which does happen. So shelves, freezer always well stocked. Weekly trip to Crystal Peaks, Sainsbury's and M & S - sorted!!

A friend of mine went to Lidl, and mistakenly bought some Daffodil bulbs, instead of onions.
Finished up in hospital after eating them, the doctor said he should be out by the spring.

It used to be Lidl for me, but i'm sick of going in there and finding only a 2 day date on their bread, plus there trying to force everyone to use the self scan tills (lower manor) So from today it will be Asda or Tesco's. As a single bloke I can spend 80.00 a week in Lidl with Wine, Never no more.
Anyone else noticed their bread is crap.?

Where do you do your weekly shop?

I do my weekly shop at Lidl…sometimes Aldi.
Lidl has a nice bakery too. For fruit and Veg, I buy at Stuart’s stall in the Moor market. If at times I find their wares a little expensive, I then do a little neet-time scrumpin’ in a nearby neighbourhood. Fruit picked in the dark feels no pain.

Aldi's Rhubarb and custard yoghurt is also fabulous. And they do a delicious Caramel greek yoghurt too.

That got me wondering "do you have to eat the shell or has the meat been taken out and then breaded?" only to discover they are actually just breaded crabsticks
