Pick up great value student homewares and household essentials in ALDI from August 31st 

The new college term is just around the corner, meaning students all over Ireland will be flying the nest and stepping out on their own for the first time. Moving out is exciting but can be daunting. With that in mind, ALDI has prepared a Student Survival Guide full of top tips around budgeting, cooking, and socialising to make the transition that little bit easier! 

ALDI’s Student Survival Guide

  1. Stock up on non-perishables Can you cook it? Yes, you can! Make sure your kitchen cabinets are stocked with non-perishable canned items like tinned tomatoes, beans, and tuna. Not only are they cheap and affordable but they can be quickly transformed into easy, nutritious meals. Plus, they have a long shelf life, meaning you don’t have to worry about them going off. 
  2. Take advantage of your student discount Between rent, college materials and transport costs, college can be pricey. Save money by availing of your student discount where possible. Whether you’re going to the cinema, hopping on the train, or buying a new laptop, there are plenty of savings to be made by simply flashing your student card. Do your research and enjoy the bargains – they won’t last forever!
  3. Make friends with frozen vegetables Want to get veggie goodness but worried about precious fridge space? Pick up frozen vegetables like peas, broccoli, spinach and more. They are affordable, convenient and retain all the natural goodness of fresh vegetables. Simply add them to a pasta dish, pop them in a stir fry or enjoy alongside meat and fish. 
  4. Join clubs and societies Looking to make some new friends or try a new hobby? Sign up to clubs and societies in college. They are a great way of meeting new people, exploring new pastimes, and discovering new passions. From tag rugby to debating, you’re sure to find something that piques your interest – and meet other like-minded people who could end up being lifelong pals! 
  5. Shop smarter Living on a budget? Save money on your grocery bills by shopping smarter. Plan your meals for the week in advance and only buy what you need. Swap out premium brands for supermarket own-label products. Don’t forget to take advantage of weekly offers like ALDI’s Super Six on fresh fruit and vegetables, 100% Irish Bord Bia Quality Assured meat and more! Consider starting a kitty with your housemates and go in on household essentials like toilet roll and dish soap together.  Plus, never go shopping on an empty stomach! 
  6. Download the Too Good To Go app Earlier this year, ALDI rolled out its partnership with the world’s largest surplus food platform, Too Good To Go, across 160 of its stores nationwide. Their ‘Surprise Bags’ contain a range of fresh items that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates at a third of the price, costing just €3.99 each to purchase. Simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for your nearby ALDI store to reserve a bag to collect at an allotted time.
  7. Follow the right people! Looking for some dinner inspo for meals that won’t break the bank? Look no further! TikTok and ALDI Brand Ambassador Caz Mooney (@irishbudgeting) is best-known for her ‘Feed 5 people under €5’ recipe ideas and money saving tips.
