With the cost of living rising, shoppers have praised a £35 Aldi Specialbuy after advice from money expert Martin Lewis. The ITV This Morning finance expert advised people on how they can stay warm without turning the heating on as bills skyrocket.
Martin suggested buying items like heated USB gloves and electric blankets, so people can heat themselves instead of their home to keep warm for less. Now Aldi shoppers have discovered a £35 Specialbuy that is helping them use the Money Saving Expert’s advice, M.E.N reports.
