But one middle aisle product in particular has got shoppers rushing to their nearest Aldi store – a Zero In magnetic door curtain.

The nifty gadget attaches to your door and keeps flying insects and bugs out of your home all the while letting air flow through.

One Aldi shopper recently found the door curtain in their local branch, posting a photo of it on the Aldi UK Shoppers Facebook page.

They captioned it: “Found this today in the middle isle (sic)!

“Was going to get one via Amazon for 12 pounds but saw this for five!

“Now I can have my door wide open without worrying about flies lol.”

The post has notched up dozens of likes and comments from shoppers who have either snapped one of the curtains up, or are keen to.

One said: “Oh wow I’m going to get one.”

Another added: “Ohhh definitely going to get a few.”

A third chimed in: “Got mine yesterday.”

Of course, whenever buying anything like this, make sure you shop around to ensure you’re getting the best deal.

Just because one retailer is selling it for a price you think is a bargain, that doesn’t mean you can’t get it cheaper elsewhere.

Price comparison websites like Trolley and Price Spy let you compare prices on thousands of products across different websites.

The Google Shopping/Product tab is useful if you want to have a quick scan of the internet to see how much a certain product is selling for too.

How to bag a bargain

SUN Savers Editor Lana Clements explains how to find a cut-price item and bag a bargain…

Sign up to loyalty schemes of the brands that you regularly shop with.

Big names regularly offer discounts or special lower prices for members, among other perks.

Sales are when you can pick up a real steal.

Retailers usually have periodic promotions that tie into payday at the end of the month or Bank Holiday weekends, so keep a lookout and shop when these deals are on.

Sign up to mailing lists and you’ll also be first to know of special offers. It can be worth following retailers on social media too.

When buying online, always do a search for money off codes or vouchers that you can use and are just two sites that round up promotions by retailer.

Scanner apps are useful to have on your phone. app has a scanner that you can use to compare prices on branded items when out shopping.

Bargain hunters can also use B&M’s scanner in the app to find discounts in-store before staff have marked them out.

And always check if you can get cashback before paying which in effect means you’ll get some of your money back or a discount on the item.

We had a quick look to see if any other retailers are selling this same Zero In magnetic door curtain for less than Aldi.

B&Q is selling it for £6.83, while Amazon has the same one for £7.20, without factoring in delivery costs.

Dunelm also has a similar-style version of the same size which costs £5 and it’s free to click and collect, if you’d rather go there.

If you are keen on grabbing the magnetic door curtain from Aldi, you won’t be able to get it online as it doesn’t offer home delivery.

You can find your nearest store by using the retailer’s branch locator tool on its website.

It comes as Aldi gears up to launch eight new Euro 2024-themed Specialbuys including a £6 bucket hat.

Shoppers can also pick up caps, T-shirts and hoodies for up to £13.

It is also selling a middle aisle bargain that’s scanning for £10 and ideal for the garden.

The Easter Island-themed head planter has been branded “just beautiful” by one shopper while another said it was “lovely”.

How to save money at Aldi

It’s worth keeping an eye out for any red sticker products, which staff add to items when they’ve been reduced in price.

Aldi tends to add them to items in the morning so it’s best to get in there early if you want to get the best discounts.

Keep an eye out for slashed-price fruits and vegetables as well – the retailer tends to reduce six items every two weeks to “silly low” prices, according to deals expert Tom Church.

Get ahead of the crowd by signing up to Aldi’s newsletter and following the retailer on social media as well.

It often announces upcoming deals via the two channels so you can snap up the best prices before anyone else.

And of course, take advantage of Aldi’s cheap alcohol which could save you some cash compared to going with branded versions.
