I love Aldi and do 70% of our shopping there. However I buy my meat and veggies from Coles/butcher's/fruit shop.
The items I particularly like are:
Wipes, nappies, all staples (flour, sugar, pasta, milk, bread etc), tinned spaghetti, chocolate Bavarian cake (in freezer), eggs, all cheese, all dairy, all cleaning products.
Hope this helps ;-)

I go there for fruit and veg pouches, wipes and the random, cool bits and pieces that they have on sale twice a week
Oh we also love bacon! It's so much tastier than Coles and woollies
Oh yes, the chocolate, yum! I love their triple cream Brie, and the spekulatius cookies!
I go through phases... I always get their corn on the cob, baby peas, mixed veg etc. any frozen veg I've found fine.
Fresh fruit and veg its hit and miss.
Meat is ok. Their roast chickens are like 3.99 a kg, our local supermarket they are 5.49 a kg. I hadn't hot one from there for a while.... I had to pluck it before cooking it
Their bread is ok, cheeses, ds loves their sachet yoghurts. Love their turkish bread. Tomato sauce is ok.
I prefer their squeezy honey to any brand name out of other supermarkets.
Their cleaning products are ok, party pies are yummier than home brand.
Staples like rice, flour, sugar etc. all fine.
I'm not keen on their nappies or personal care lines, tinned products or baby products. Anything else I try once and if I don't like it, don't buy it again.
That brewing said we are using an aldi toaster thats probably 3yrs old and was about $40. 4 slice, wide, defrost, crumpet setting....and a count down timer till it pops!

I love aldi but can't get everything there (I'm gluten free and there's done other things we like that are only at Coles/woolies). I definitely save money by shopping at aldi, so I manage it by shopping at aldi every fortnight and Coles on the opposite fortnight.
I haven't been for ages as its hard to get to (have to go up one st, round roundabout and back down, then up really steep ramp where you have to stop to get carpark ticket) and lately the only time I'm in town is at end of the day after working and middie appt so I just pick up a wollies order.
Like others I have found some fruit good, some crap. I didn't like the toilet paper but don't think j had an issue with anything else. They used to have a Greek lamb wrap kit that we LOVE but last few times I've been there I couldn't find it
