The TikTok creator @cost life crisis shared a video titled ‘My £5 weekly store at Aldi’ and shared the full shopping list, while stressing in the comments: ‘This video is about surviving on £5 a week, not a high protein diet available for £5 a week.”

The full store cost just under a fiver for a grand total of £4.97. Items purchased included 45p of rice, 65p of pasta sauce and a loaf of bread, as well as cereal, pasta, canned vegetables and fresh fruit.
When asked what dishes they make at such a low price, they replied, “Tomato pasta, rice and peas, beans on toast, rice pudding, etc.”
For some, the loot seemed far-fetched, with one critic commenting, “It’s not enough for a week, not even for a small child.”
The TikTok creator replied, “Unfortunately, some people don’t have a choice.”
The video has garnered thousands of views since going viral on the video sharing platform.
The helpful video was shared as Brits grapple with the ongoing cost-of-living crisis as supermarket prices soar.
