Mum’s £25 Aldi shopping list feeds a whole family five ‘gourmet’ meals

A mum has shared everything on her weekly Aldi shopping list which feeds her whole family for a week.

But though she keeps it cheap, Instagrammer Ashleigh, also known as @Cardiff.Mum, doesn’t skimp on the quality — or the type of food — she makes.

Tens of thousands of people have liked her latest shopping post in which Ashleigh shows off her £25 trolley and the meals she made with the goods.

Among them were Parmesan-crusted Chicken Alfredo, Cajun Chicken Ciabattas, Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi, and Pulled Chicken and Chorizo ​​Quesadillas.

Along with recipes, Ashleigh shares her top tips for optimizing your shopping.

Followers took to the platform to thank Ashleigh for the meal inspiration, tagging friends and family in the meal ideas.

Lu Weston commented, “It’s amazing! I’m definitely going to try some of these recipes! Thank you!”

Carissa said: “Ooo need the recipes. Sick of spending £100 on food shops!”

However, Aldi was not the cheapest supermarket in February.

That price goes to rival Lidl, according to the latest analysis comparing the cost of an average shopping list.

The monthly price test by Which? compared the cost of 23 essentials, including own brands and items such as Hovis bread, over 28 days – to reveal the cheapest grocer that month.

He found that on average shoppers would have paid £24.21 at Lidl, according to the shimmer.

It beat rival discounter Aldi by just 62p.
