    We love aldi. Where I live, woolworths, coles and aldi are all in the same area so there's no driving around.

    I start at big w for our nappies, or woolworths or coles, whichever it's cheaper, then onto coles for fresh food and meat and other brand things I prefer. Then I finish off at aldi. Doing this I save a lot of money. We love their frozen foods, wipes, baby foods, cleaning products, creams and cheeses, stock, fresh baked turkish bread, they also stock the porridge that ds eats and the coffee we drink, we don't buy much "junk" foods so I steer clear of those.

    After doing research and taking the time to go to each shop we save well over $100 per fortnight.

    Wow I'm surprised that people hate their fruit and veg and meat, it's always consistently good quality at my local stores! Sometimes if Woolies have a special, an item is cheaper but overall my shop is much cheaper at Aldi compared to Woolies. I'm a brand snob with certain things like coke and Tim tams but I'm happy to buy most other things at Aldi. Their nappies and wipes have been great for us and saved us a fortune.

    Admittedly it's been a fair while since I shopped at Aldi. I would love if someone would be willing to share their docket, either by pic or typing?

    About 6ish years ago our local Aldi was terrible, the produce and meats didn't last and were just really bad quality.

    Fast forward to the last 3ish years and they are fantastic here with the produce. Just as fresh as the green grocer. The meat is a bit hit and miss. It's all ok as long as I use within a couple days or freeze but definitely doesn't last till the use by date.

    I love aldi! I do my major shop there, and dh works at woollies so h can pick up extra stuff when he works. I find it soo much cheaper than anywhere else. A few things off the top of my head....frozen chicken tenders or nuggets 3.8. Snitzel 5. 6 pack yoghurt 3.3 frozen berries 3.3. I know the price of everything at aldi...so easy when I am doing my shopping list and can calculate. $100 a week to feed 4 people. (I don't but much fruit there so will go to grocer for a big stock up)

    Baby wipes (if you don't get coles comfy bots). We get their pasta and passata. Their rice and corn cakes are great - no added anything! Cereals like rice bubbles are very cheap. Fruit and veg can be good. We also regularly get their yoghurt, milk, butter, marg and tofu. But prefer coles cheese. Their tissues and paper towel isn't too bad either but the quality isnt that great imo (not that it bothers me).

    Eta. Their crumpets are better than any branded or other supermarket ones I've had! Tasty and fluffy.

    I buy meat from Aldi as a preference over Coles, I find the quality of the meat at our local Aldi's much nicer than the Coles stuff, much cheaper too. I occasionally buy their fruit and veg, depending on how it looks at the time, their freezer food is much cheaper and their cheese/yoghurt etc is also a lot cheaper and fine quality, I also buy kids snacks there. I don't like their pasta sauce as I find it bland and I did try their nappies but found my son always smelt like pee, so back to Huggies for those. I do find spend less money if I shop between Aldi and Coles rather than exclusively at coles, by a reasonable amount.

    Love their rice and corn cakes, paper towel rolls and I just discovered their frozen salmon portions (YUM!)

    We also get basics like flour, sugar, tinned spaghetti, block cheese etc.

    I have to admit I do have to do an additional shop to get my more 'gourmet' ingredients, so I probably do a bulk Aldi shop once a fortnight or 3 weeks.

    And I'm not a fan of their meat - I tried the sausages years ago and my kitchen was coated in fat when I came out the next morning. It was disgusting. I would hope they've improved since, but I'm too scared to try any of their meat now!!

    I love Aldi, but won't buy fruit and veg from mine as its not as good.

    My buys are:
    - dairy, such as cheese, milk, their pink milk is great, sour cream etc
    - pantry staples like flour, condensed milk, sugar
    - melting moments
    - tomato sauce (Aus grown too!)
    - dishwashing tablets
    - dog food
    - macadamia nuts

    I love their special buys, especially the kids jammies.
