Aldi's £35 product which keeps you warm for just 2p an hour

Aldi's wearable heated throw is a great way to stay warm and save money this winter.

In the cost of living crisis, we're all looking for ways to stay warm as the weather gets colder without racking up our energy bills.

Although we recently saw a decrease in the energy price cap, taking it down to £1,923 from £2,074, our bills are still likely to be more expensive than last winter.

But fear not! As an Aldi product may just provide a money-saving solution.

And fans of the budget supermarket chain are going wild for this Specialbuy.

On Facebook page Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, one user shared the product which costs £35.

"If you only need to be warm in one room, then bingo," the shopper said as they showed off their latest purchase of a wearable heated throw.

The heated throw comes with a built-in heated pad and controller so you can set your preferred temperature.

The post has since racked up thousands of comments from other shoppers keen to snap it up for themselves.

One person wrote: “I have this and absolutely love it!" while another added: "I have one of these it’s perfect."

Heated throws and blankets are all the range during the colder months, and the gadgets are actually something the team at Money Saving Expert thinks could help keep costs down this winter.

Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis and his team recently explained on their site that plugging in a heated blanket for an hour would cost you just 2p per hour and will definitely stop you from reaching for the thermostat so often.

Lewis also recently shared a recommendation for drying your clothes that is ‘far, far cheaper' than putting the heating on or using a tumble dryer - which can cost up to a £1 an hour to run.

Speaking on his podcast, Lewis told listeners to use a dehumidifier as a cheaper alternative to chucking the heating on.

He said: “Many dehumidifiers have different wattages, the one I checked out was 200 watts (w).

“Once we know it’s 200w and we know a kilowatt (kw) is 1,000w, which is how electricity tends to be priced, we know this is a fifth of a kilowatt.

"And you pay roughly 34p per kw per hour. A fifth is 7p so you’re going to pay roughly 7p per hour to run a dehumidifier at 200w assuming it uses full power the whole time.

"Which is generally far, far cheaper than putting the heating on."
