ALDI shopper shares brilliant checkout trick

A shopper has shared her favourite checkout trick for speedy grocery packing in store.

Posting on the Aldi Mums Facebook group, the woman showed how she made her shop easier at the supermarket by using two large plastic tubs.

According to the mum, the tubs “fit perfectly into the trolley and so easy to get in and out of the car”.

The shopper also revealed her strategy to fit all the groceries in the tubs and get them checked out quickly at the conveyor belt.

“I put the heaviest items in the front tub so that they come out first onto the belt and then I distribute the heavy things evenly into the two tubs after they’ve been swiped through the register,” she explained.

“You’ll be surprised how much you can fit into them.”

The hack has been praised by fellow shoppers in the group, with one calling it “a brilliant idea”.

Other shoppers pointed out that the trick could also be carried out using laundry baskets or Ikea blue bags.

ALDI has previously caught flak over its “stressful” checkout experience, with customers calling for express lanes to be installed in stores.

“... the dirty looks I got when I filled up the conveyor belt at Aldi by other impatient customers, who thought it was the end of the world that someone was doing a big shop, was phenomenal,” a shopper wrote on the Facebook group.

A spokeswoman for the retailer said in a statement then: “We constantly review our processes and are open to receiving customer feedback to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional value and great service to our customers.”
