    I agree with research. We conducted homework and now know exactly what items to purchase from aldi or coles. We go to both weekly when shopping.

    I have also found the quality of Aldi food is comparable to the brand food at Woolies or Coles so I generally compare the prices of aldi vs brand food which is where I get my difference.

    Aldi has an award winning range of skin creams. I use their Q10 one and it is fabulous. Only 1/3 of the price of Olay or other big brands. I have even been told that the Aldi creams are made by Olay.

    Aldi also has good baby sales twice a year and another thing that is good, are the sewing machines and overlockers that they sell cheap. They are Janome's but re-branded. So you get great quality for a fraction of the price of a branded Janome.
    I also love their icecreams and you HAVE to try their honeycomb Bavarian. Yummmmmmm!
    I find fruit and veg are ALWAYS cheaper at Aldi and they buy local too.

    Ie: Currently Woolies and Coles are selling bananas for 3,49kg. Aldi it is 0,99/kg.
    Broccoli at Woolies and Coles 6,99kg(!!!!!) and Aldi 2,99/kg.

    Their biscuits and choccie are great and cheaper too.
    Oh and don't forget the nappies. Much cheaper and much better than Huggies, BabyLove and Pampers.
    I mainly use cloth, but at night I use Aldi disposables for DS as he is a champion wee'er. The Aldi nappies are the only ones that keep him dry and rash free.

    Cheaper items I buy at aldi are:

    Margarine
    Frozen veg
    Frozen chips
    Yoghurt
    Milk
    Bread (frozen at home to use for toast)
    Juice for my husband
    Some cleaning products
    Nappies (I do think Aldi nappies are good, but still use huggies for night and aldi during the day)

    Well the fruit and veg at my local Aldi is always cheaper than my local Woolworths and the quality is awesome! It's usually better than my local fruit shop.

    My main savings at aldi are:
    Mineral water, cheese sticks, lollies, toilet paper, tissues, fruit & veg, wine, frozen chips, frozen meals, mince meat ($5.99/kg and very nice).

    To me it's not so much if it's cheaper than homebrand as I really like aldi products. Plus the variety of no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives is great.

    I have just discovered Aldi 'Belmont' brand 40% chip cookies.

    Go now, drop whatever you're doing, pack up the kids, go buy some.

    OH MY TASTY
