Particularly if you want to give your garden a glow up in time for summer, then Aldi has just the thing for you.

Posting on social media, on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK page, a private group with 2.5 million members, an admin member proudly showed off the new middle aisle buy from Aldi, leaving many open-mouthed.

Alongside the post, the anonymous user pened: “Dachshund Garden Planter, £6.99 at ALDI…”

So if you find sausage dogs seriously cute, then this could be perfect for you.

We all love Aldi Specialbuys, but this Dachshund planter has left many particularly impressed. 

The adorable rattan effect dog planter is sure to add a unique element to your garden. 

You can fill it with a variety of your favourite blooms to really add that personal touch to your outdoor space. 

It’s perfect for displaying small plants and herbs and not only is this weather-resistant buy suitable for gardens, but it would also look great inside too.

Even better, this cheap buy comes with a one year guarantee – so we’re sure you won’t want to be without this ‘paw-fect’ planter in your life.

And if sausage dogs aren’t your thing, then you’ll be pleased to know that there’s two other breeds to choose from – a Scottish Terrier and Shepherd Dog. 

We think this buy is super affordable, but you’ll need to move fast if you want to nab one. 

The post has clearly impressed many, as at the time of writing, it had quickly amassed over 320 comments. 


Social media users were open-mouthed by the adorable dog planters and many took to the comments to express this.

Why do Aldi and Lidl have such fast checkouts

IF you’ve ever shopped in Aldi or Lidl then you’ll probably have experienced its ultra-fast checkout staff.

Aldi’s speedy reputation is no mistake, in fact, the supermarket claims that its tills are 40 per cent quicker than rivals.

It’s all part of Aldi’s plan to be as efficient as possible – and this, the budget shop claims, helps keep costs low for shoppers.

Efficient barcodes on packaging means staff are able to scan items as quickly as possible, with the majority of products having multiple barcodes to speed up the process.

It also uses “shelf-ready” packaging which keeps costs low when it comes to replenishing stock.

At the same time, one bargain hunter wrote: “I think I might have to look at these for my sister’s Christmas present.”

At the same time, many Facebook users tagged their friends and loved ones to alert them to the bargain buy.

When’s the best time to shop at Aldi?

WHEN it comes to shopping at Aldi, the best time to do so depends on what you want to buy.

For reduced items – when shops open

Red sticker items are rare at Aldi’s 830 UK stores, but the supermarket says that none of its food goes to waste so there are some to be found – if you’re quick.

A spokesman for the supermarket said: “All items are reduced to 50 per cent of the recommend sales price before stores open on their best before or use by dates.”

That means you have the best chance of finding reduced food items if you go into stores as soon as it opens.

Opening times vary by shop but a majority open from 7am or 8am. You can find your nearest store’s times by using the supermarket’s online shop finder tool.

For Specialbuys – Thursdays and Sundays

Specialbuys are Aldi’s weekly collection of items that it doesn’t normally sell, which can range from pizza ovens to power tools.

New stock comes into stores every Thursday and Sunday, so naturally, these are the best days to visit for the best one-off special deals.

For an even better chance of bagging the best items, head there for your local store’s opening time.

You don’t have to head into stores to bag a Specialbuy, though.

They also go on sale online, usually at midnight on Thursday and Sunday, and you can pre-order them up to a week in advance.

As long as you spend at least £25, you’ll get the items delivered for free.

Remember: once they’re gone, they’re gone, so if there’s something you really want, visit as early as possible

One user asked an Aldi shopper: “Can you look for one of these?”

A second tagged a family member and shared: “If I see them I’ll get us one.”

Meanwhile, another dog lover tagged a friend and explained: “If this isn’t a sign you need to go to Aldi I dunno what is.”
