Aldi and Lidl middle aisles are the scene of many weekly shop related crimes. You go in for milk and bread and arrive home with a lawnmower and matching PJs for your dog.

The middle aisle is far too tempting and we can’t be blamed for bowing to the various temptations.

This week, the options are aplenty in both stores. So hold on to your purses because with everything from houseplants to skincare, you’ll be leaving with a lot more than you bargained for.
