Aldi SpecialBuys - Review!! Once it’s gone, It’s gone!!

I got a couple of parcels yesterday which made me squeal with excitement! I was sent a selection of products from the Aldi Special Buys range to have a look at.....There was bathroom, bedroom and living room items included....


Bring a dash of excitement into your home this autumn with Aldi’s latest ranges of bedroom, bathroom and home accessories. Offering everything from quality interior décor to household essentials, you can transform your living space without breaking the bank with these three great value ranges in store on 4th and 8th October, while stocks last. 

Egyptian Cotton Bath Sheet - £6.99
Ladies Towelling Slippers - £2.99 


The bath towels are 100% cotton and made from the highest quality yarn and I can imagine this lasting a long time....They are so soft and big enough to wrap around me with room to spare which is fantastic....

Becky has claimed the slippers. She is not quite a size four but she said she will grow into them! I like her way of thinking....These are also so soft and look very well made! I couldn't believe they were only £2.99....I have bought slippers like these in the past but not as nice as these for twice the price!

Salter Coloured Electronic Scales  - £9.99

 
I love these! I had a cheap set of scales....The one's with the dial which spins round....They have now been packed away and these are my scales of choice! These are so easy to use and easy to read too....You can set it to weigh in Kg's, pounds or stone which I really appreciate....I'm more of a stone and pound girl than kilograms...It has carpet feet which means it can still give an accurate reading on uneven floors. I have tried this and my weight it all the same on different flooring...These scales are also available in black or pink....I would have expected this to cost a lot more....It looks expensive and works well! Another bargain!

Towel Warmer - £19.99
Cotton Bath Mat - £4.99
Decorative Cushion - £5.99


The towel warmer is a fab little gadget.....We have tried it and it only takes about five minutes to heat up....It will be getting used a lot now the weather is colder....I do love a warm towel.....It is free standing so it can be kept anywhere. I did check our electric smart meter when it was switched on....If I boil a kettle it changes to amber or red saying I am using a lot of electricity but with the towel heater it stayed on green so it seems it wasn't using too much electricity which is a good thing...

***After being asked if this will dry towels I skimmed through the instructions and it turns out it does!! I never even thought of using this to quickly dry something! Fantastic! I will be getting even more use out of it***

The bathmat is so soft and quite thick which I like....It is really nice to look at and is now in my bathroom....I think this will be the start of me doing the bathroom out....

The cushion is filled well....Firm but not too firm! It would go perfectly in a living room or bedroom.....I have claimed the cushion and it is staying on my armchair in my living room....

Floating Sealife Bathroom Accessories - £2.49
Winter Wall Clock - £4.99


This soap dish is so cute....I think I am going to have to take a trip to Aldi to get the rest of the set! There is also a nail Brush, tumbler, lotion dispenser and toothbrush holder in this set.....There isn't just penguins though.....There is also dolphin or fish designs.....

This clock is just gorgeous....It is already hung in my bedroom....It is 30cm in diameter and looks perfect for this time of year...

Sunrise Alarm Clock  - £19.99


The Sunrise alarm clock is by far my favourite product.....An alarm clock which gradually brightens to simulate a normal sunrise....I really struggle to get up on a morning especially now that the mornings are darker....I think this may be the answers to my problems....As well as being an alarm clock it also is a radio alarm clock with 8 channel memories....It has 9 different alarm melodies.....Some I like more than others. The beep, beep, beep one makes me shudder and wakes me up in a foul mood so from now on I will be waking up to the birds cheeping....hehehe It also can be used as a night or mood light....If I hadn't have been sent this and I had seen it in the store I would have seriously considered buying it....It is easy to set up and has so many options when it comes to the alarm sound and colour of light....


I think I will be visiting Aldi more often.....Be sure to have a look in your local store....They have some lovely items all at great prices....

 I was sent these items free of charge for my honest review! This is it.....All thoughts and opinions are my own.
