    Default Coles or Woolies?

    Which one do you shop at which do you find cheaper?
    We live rurally so no IGA or Aldi, just those two.
    Our weekly shop is costing around $300 and we seem to get less each week.
    All fruit and veg is bought at a farmers market and meat from a butcher, everything is we buy at Woolies.

    I tend to use woolies more as I find it easier to find what I need than at coles. I tend to wander aimlessly around coles and spend more on random things id never normally buy.

    Default Re: Coles or Woolies?

    I tend to find woolies cheaper. Could be because we have always shopped there even growing up so not sure what I like from Cole's in the homebrand stuff but when I do a quick pop in at Cole's, I still find it more expensive.

    Coles is cheaper where I shop but it changes from suburb to suburb. Sad to say but there price do change depending on whether it considered a richer or poorer suburb and how regional you are.

    Coles is more expensive here (also rural) but I do prefer to shop there, they have the products I like and also a more pleasant experience, less crowded, more spacious. Geeze I sound like an ad. We spend about $150 p/week for 2 adults (one preggo) + toddler - but not all at Coles, $50 of that is organic f&v at farmgate, and I try to buy meat at a variety of places. Though Coles has pretty good quality meat too IMO.

    Used to be a woolies girl but recently have found Coles to be cheaper and better quality home brand stuff. I think it depends on your location though - I'm lucky in that I have local Coles, woolies, aldi and iga - spoilt for choice! Don't have a local green grocer tho
