People are late in finding out what the shelf next to Aldi's checkouts is for

Aldi fans are divided by the viral TikTok.

Shoppers are only just realising what the shelf next to Aldi's checkouts is actually for.

Watch below:

TikTok account 'Cooking with Tubz' has divided the crowd with his video on how to avoid the chaos of Aldi's checkout system.

Normally you're there waiting with your bags for the checkout clerk to fire your food items across the conveyor belt.

Before you know it, you're juggling three or four bags while a queue of people are impatiently waiting for you to hurry the f**k up.

Now, the man known as Tubz, has revealed how to avoid all that anxiety and it's ridiculously easy once you know what the checkout shelf is for.

"For those of you who don't understand how it works for Aldi, and why the checkout operator goes really fast," he explained in his video posted yesterday (22 November).

Instead of packing away the items in his bag, he simply throws them straight into the trolly.

Tubz then makes his way to the packing shelf behind him, which gives him all the time in the world to put away his groceries.

"It means you get out of the way quicker for the other customers and then out of the door," he said, while captioning the post: "#aldi #howitworks #packing #shopping #easy."

"You can pack properly at the packing shelves and not rush which is what they are for," Tubz later added in a comment on the video.

However, viewers were divided by the checkout method, with some deeming it a waste of time.

"Packing shelf?!" one wrote.

"Sod that!

"Open bags in trolley and pack as they scan."

"No way," another added.

"Open up your bags ready in the trolley and throw them in.

"I have not got the time or energy to do it twice."

"One of the many reasons I don’t shop at Aldi, I don’t like that kind of pressure," a third commented.

Others Aldi fans were delighted with the video, as one person wrote: "Thank you, finally someone gets it!

"People so selfish packing at till, they don't get it."

"It drives me mad when people don't use the packing shelf," another added.

"Yes!! And I feel much less pressure at the packing area with 2 little kids," a third commented.

"Instead of worrying that I’m holding up the whole queue."

"Also means they can keep prices down as they don’t have to hire as many staff as customers are getting through the tills quicker," someone else wrote.

Each to their own I guess.
