    So would a bread maker and yogurt maker be worth the money? We only use a loaf a week for ds1s school lunches.

    There's a no knead bread recipe that my friend has tried and recommended http://www.motherearthnews.com/real-...#axzz2WEdxw5Yl

    Yogurt maker from Aldi is cheap & you get 6 jars. But if you already have jars from baby food jars etc, just put them in a pot of hot water, cover up really well with lid & towers you'll have yogurt in couple of hours.

    I buy cheap white vinegar & use it to clean the floor, as softener... Sponges, rugs, DW tablets... are cheaper in Aldi & Reject shop. Sorry there's no budget store in your area. There's a petrol station near my place that's cheaper than Woolies even with discount so shop around if you have other options.

    We have an aldi 5 mins away, I was wondering has anyone used aldi newborn nappies? I noticed the dramatic price difference compared to huggies. I used huggies with my other 2 religiously a lot of my friends used huggies newborn & swapped to aldi later on. Is there a difference?
