Which Shop is Cheaper Lidl or Aldi?

Deals

I always thought that they were quite even but one of my friends told me that Aldi is much cheaper. I am not totally convinced 😂 so I am wondering what do you guys think?

I think we stick with Lidl because my partner works there so we get 10% staff discount. However when I go into Aldi I’m always pleasantly surprised! I hate how Lidl is constantly discontinuing products its always the ones I love. I have always thought they were pretty on par though for price x

I thought this was interesting:

Morrisons named the cheapest (major) supermarket (in 2017)

Morrisons was consistently the cheapest for a basket of goods, according to new data, although there wasn't much difference between the 'big four'.

Throughout 2017, Which? monitored the price of a basket of 75 branded goods at the six major supermarkets – Asda, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose.

However, the comparison did not include discount Aldi and Lidl as they do not sell the same branded items.

Morrisons was the cheapest throughout the year with an average price for the 75 items – that includes everyday items such as PG Tips teabags and Warburtons bread – of £142.76.

It only took the top spot by a matter of pence with Asda, 2016’s cheapest supermarket, having an average price of £142.80.

The most expensive supermarket in 2017 was Waitrose, where the same goods cost £11 more than at Morrisons, with a total price of £154.01.

Which? used data from MySupermarket to monitor prices, including discounts but not multibuy reductions for all 75 items across 2017. The prices were added up to give an average cost for a basket at each supermarket.

Supermarket - Average price of 75-item basket in 2017

1. Morrisons £142.76

2. Asda £142.80

3.Tesco £146.29

4. Sainsburys £147.66

5.Ocado £153.36

6. Waitrose £154.01

My nearest Aldi is too far away to shop at every week and our local Lidl is really small, so don't shop there (I am thinking about going in to try their baby range as I have heard it is good), but I shop at either Tesco or Morrisons and as I don't buy brands, only supermarket own or value products, the savings at Aldi/Lidl aren't actually that much for me, plus I would still need to go to Tesco/Morrisons to get certain things.

My friend shops at Aldi alot and she says that it is much cheaper than lidl.

I have to say I am quite surprised with the responses. I really thought that Lidl was well out there as a cheapest shop. The only think I always thought that their prices like to jump unexpectedly on random items, I am guessing that only due to the popularity of them.

I find Aldi is cheaper than Lidl for a lot of the items I buy - cheeses, cured meats, snacks. Only occasionally Lidl has something that is cheaper than Aldi, but the majority of the continental stuff, I find Aldi is cheaper

Aldi and LIDL are kind of cut from the same cloth. They sell very similar products with slight differences here and there so the customer needs to know where to buy it from.

Farmfoods is good though it lacks in several areas which Aldi/LIDL cover.

Rockman I think I’ve only ever been to a farmfoods once and I was not impressed - it reminded me of Iceland. It’s perhaps good if you want to stock up on bulk loads of frozen stuff, but I tend to shop on the go, so Lidl and Aldi suits me fine (the promos they change on a weekly basis is clever, as it does see, to lure customers, even though the good stuff always goes very quickly)

It depends on the products specifically, not necessarily the store.

Plus, just because it's a bit cheaper doesn't mean it's as good as the other brand.

Meat in UK for me just never tasted anywhere near as good as I'd get in Portugal or Spain. And it has a weird smell, it's said that it's a way to preserve it or something.

Oh, and don't even get me started on the chicken shops around every corner. lol

Never liked fish and chips as a combination yet millions seem to love it, even more with vinegar. Ugh.

Lol that’ll be me - chips with lots and lots of vinegar, to the point where the bottom of the bag is soaked right through! 😜
