Aldi shoppers praise £35 SpecialBuy item after Martin Lewis 4p heating tip

As most of us begin to feel the pinch of the cost of living crisis, many households will be looking for ways to keep costs low and stay warm.

Which is why Aldi shoppers have rushed to heap praise on an item from the budget supermarket's popular SpecialBuy's range - and it costs just £35.

The item in question is a heated throw with sleeves which lets you stay warm when you don't want to rack up energy bills in the colder weather.

It comes after Martin Lewis shared alternative ways for people to keep themselves warm without turning on the heating, which included buying USB gloves and electric blankets.

And now shoppers have found that Aldi's heated throw can help them follow the money-saving guru's advice, reports The Manchester Evening News.

Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group, Barbara Mann shared a picture of a £35 heated throw with sleeves you can buy at Aldi.

She wrote: "After Martin Lewis recommendations for keeping warm and using electric blankets if you only need to be warm in one £35 Aldi."

The post clearly struck a chord with struggling shoppers, as it's been commented on more than 5,000 times.

Responding, Emma Sherman said: "I have this and absolutely love it! Its amazing also for when I have a fibro flare up!"

Lisa Harrop said: "I bought this for my hubby in February I have used it a couple of times at night or when ill and it's really warn without been plugged in."

Lorna Quinn wrote: "They are great. And I use it as an electric blanket on the very cold nights. So comfortable."

Joanne Guy commented: "I've got one of these and it's lush, so comfy and warm even without turning it on!"

Amanda Payne-MacArthur said: "I use mine every day."

Unfortunately the blankets are currently out of stock on the Aldi website, but you may be able to find one in your local store if you're lucky.
