    I've been to Aldi once or twice and haven't been back. I hate the checkout system. They throw your items through the checkout so fast while sitting on their comfy seats and you have to bundle your items back into the trolley while they're waiting for you to pay, then you have to go bag your items yourself. I much prefer the friendly, helpful service I get from my local Woolies.

    Lol. I'm the opposite. I love packing my own shopping cause it's done how I like it.

    Every time I venture into Woolies (rarely cause I loathe the place!!!) I seem to get someone who can't pack a shopping bag properly!

    Lol yeah it does take some skills to get a whole trolley done at aldi without holding up the line, I'm lucky DF and I do it together, so he loads while I manage the kids and pay. Also we collect empty boxes as we go through aldi and load into the boxes in the trolley at the other end, so then we put the boxes straight into the boot - so it's bagless shopping.

    Oh using the boxes sounds like a good idea!

    When I shop at Aldi I love how quick the service is at the checkout so even if the line is long it's never a long wait.
    I bag up my groceries at the car and I also take my clothesline basket to fill it up with the light stuff.
    The only thing I can fault at Aldi is their meat and bread but only lately. For the last few years we've never had meat issues until now when it seems to go off way before the expiry date and sometimes the bread isn't fresh, but there isn't an instore bakery either.

    I love their weekly specials and we save so much $$$$ shopping at Aldis.
    I shop there first then anything I can't get I'll get at woollies.

    I haven't read any other posts but just want to put my two cents in, my sister has had maggots in the eggs on an occasion, I have brought a prepackaged cake only to get it home and discover its two weeks past its use by date and I have had crumpets on two different occasions with mould on them. I dont buty anything edible from Aldi but do have to say the nappies are good (better than some branded ones) and the softener smells nice.
