Hi Ced
Here you go
https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/thur-21-may/

My only warning is make sure what is in the bag matches the label, I will have to go back later to change a pair of trousers cos they didn't

Thanks George,

I also noticed that they have the 44 litre DRY BAGS on offer again on the same day for £9.99:

Brilliant buys those bags.
It would be nice if the opening was along the length, but at that price.....
Used it on Euro trip to Portugal and tripe in this country; no complaints.

Pay attention to your receipt guys and gals!
My wife bought a pair of their caribiner mugs at the weekend, which retail at 4.99, to then get home and only then check the receipt! The barcode of the mugs had obviously been mis-programmed into their system and we were charged 25.99!

Their customer service is great and they have offered to send vouchers to compensate.
(Unfortunately our nearest Aldi is about 45 mins away!).

Part of the joys of having a screaming baby at the checkout!

Just a quick thought on the subject of dry bags....check this website out:
http://www.ewetsuits.com/acatalog/Dry-B ... gs-uk.html

Their prices are very reasonable and their service is good too!
I've bought the 20l red heavy duty dry bag, the 30l white rucksack and a 3 pack of their lightweight dry bags and I can only say they are brilliant.
The rucksack came with me to Germany last year (13 hours there, 12 hours back) and I barely knew it was there. I had the 20l bag strapped to my rear seat and after 8 hours of torrential rain on the way back (non stop from Belgium to Guildford!!!) the contents were bone dry. If only I'd have been wearing one!!
