I dunno, but I tend to somehow save a lot whenever I go. I mean, a quick "need to get a few items," shop from Woolies will cost me $30 just for a handful of items... but doing the same things only costs me about $10 from Aldi. Maybe it's also because there's not a million things on offer, so I don't see something on sale and think, "Oh, I'll get that cos it's on sale..." etc. I probably buy a lot of things when I go shopping just because I walk past them, see them, and then want them (so buy them...lol).
The cleaning products and toilet paper are WAAAAAAY cheaper too.
agreed i think maybe people feel like they save money cause they do less impulse buying.
or cause they can only get half of what they need they feel like they spent half as much cause they actually on got half the stuff?
i can't see how it is any cheaper in actual prices. I've sat with my docket from coles numerous times on Aldi online to compare and its just not cheaper? everyone raves about it so i keep checking but nope still not cheaper? a couple of things maybe but then a couple of coles things will then be cheaper so evens out.

If you are comparing Aldi versus only buying home brand at coles then yeah they are probably on par. But for me.. I dont and will not buy coles hkmebrand... You know why? Cause I go to Aldi for home brand and coles for VARIETY... If we all only buy home brand from coles before you know it thats all they will sell! I love being able to go somewhere that sells variety of brands etc

nappies and wipes depend on the child ... my children BOTH reacted to huggies - full on rashes ... so yes we used MCN .. but when we couldn't/ didn't want to - I would shop at Aldi... and had absolutely no issues with the nappies, no rash .. and no real leaks (least not that I remember?? lol)
I use Aldi for the biscuits usually - ALL their biscuits/ lollies are artificial colours/ artificial flavour free ... which often homebrand stuff ISN"T .. so if your comparing price and product .. for me thats a win.
I do like a lot of their toys/ kids books that come through - they are a comparable price and not a bad quality for it.
I dont shop there ALL the time - but I will duck in grab a few bits and pieces and then finish my shopping elsewhere
I am in the mist of transferring most of my shooting to Aldi my only problem being a buy more 'junk' food, love their lollies, chocolate and treat food but it sees me blow my $$$$
Have loved their nappies for a while now and just started buying their bananas all other fruit and veg are a bit merh! Loving the toy specials and things they have though
