Yes my kids love those choc chip cookies. Actually they're eating some right now lol.
I buy the same things at aldi and it saves me heaps of money. I get dried lasagne sheets, passata, olive oil, canola oil, jasmine rice, diced tomatoes, tinned pineapple, shortcut spagetti, weetbix, rice bubbles, baby wipes, fruit juice, meat pies, milk, plastic cheese, grated cheese, cheese block (we love cheese lol), butter tub, choc yogo things, raisin breat, free range eggs, bread, laundry soaker, even mince meat and chicken thighs/breasts. Their sausages are ok too. Sometimes fruit and veg depending on what it looks like. But often its much cheaper per kilo. I buy heaps of stuff there. All good quality and tasty. I dont buy the 'specials' advertised though but Ive heard good things about them. Its worth making a trip there in my household.

Organic tinned tomatoes - 99c
Danone Greek style blueberry yoghurt 4pk - $3.49

Compared to my local Safeway, aldi can't be beat!!
Maybe I'm lucky but I can't find fresher fruit or veg, at a great price near me, than my local aldi.
I buy block cheese and kids swim nappies from Aldi. Also tampons back in the day when I wasn't pregnant or breastfeeding.
Things I buy from Aldi which are much cheaper than my local Coles:
Frozen blueberries (similar price but much better quality)
Roasts - pork/beef/silverside
Cheese - Philly and cheese sticks
Organic wholemeal pasta
Olive oil spread
Microwaveable brown rice
Rye bread - tastes way better than Helgas and cheaper
I think it definitely contributes that you don't have as much variety. Also what socio-demographic your Coles/woolies is. Mine are complete rip offs
i love the wooden toys they have occassionally. And the learning stuff.
I buy the wholemeal bread, milk, cheese, margarine, cheese stringers, fruit and veg, meat, pasta, tomato soups, fried rice mixes, cleaning stuff, hand soap, baby wipes (used to buy the nappies but dont need them now), tissues, toilet paper, stain remover (nappy san stuff), frozen pizzas, potato bake, frozen chips, curly fries, frozen veg mix, LOTS from aldi.
