Mum shares Aldi hack that means you'll never have to pay for a bag again – and it works in other supermarkets too08/26/2021
A MUM has revealed her ‘genius’ Aldi hack that means you’ll never need to pay for a bag again – and you can use it in all supermarkets.
Dallas Collier made the discovery at the end of her trip to the retail giant’s store in Alabama, on Wednesday.
She watched a fellow shopper in amazement as they packed their groceries on the bagging counter, pulling her bags from an old tissue box, later explaining her bewilderment on Facebook.
“As I pushed my buggy to the bagging counter, I see the woman next to me pull her plastic grocery sacks out of a Kleenex box. I asked her to see the Kleenex box and then laughed right out loud telling her just how brilliant she is,” her post read.
She proclaimed it to be the “best Aldi hack ever” in a group dedicated to impressive Aldi finds.
“She probably thought I was a bit nuts because I wanted a picture of it … But I just had to share,” she said.
The photo showed a square tissue box with a plastic bag protruding out the top.
“She says she keeps this little Kleenex box in the car and always has a little grocery sacks handy. Just plain stinkin’ smart,” her post read.
Hundreds of others agreed that the idea was pure genius and would make their grocery trips a lot easier.
“This is exactly what I call one of the ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ moments that I have daily! Brilliant,” one person wrote in a comment.
“She’s a genius! I’m stealing that idea to keep in my car,” another said.
Many said they had adapted a similar method but used an old baby wipe box instead.
Others said they had used old tissue boxes to store spare bags in their home, but hadn’t thought to bring them to the supermarket.
“I keep a box under all of my sinks, my garage and laundry room but I never thought of one in my car for Aldi’s stops. Great idea,” one person wrote.
“I always stored my bags to use in my bathroom trash can in an empty Kleenex box. This is a great idea,” another said.
“I also keep empty Kleenex boxes to use for a little trash bin in my car,” someone else said.
