    Default Tell me about Aldi

    I really like the mamia unscented baby wipe refills but we don't have an aldi in tassie. I try to get people to bring them back for me when they travel!

    What I did when I first went to ALDI is pretty much bought everything..then if there was something I didn't like I wouldn't buy it and I'd buy that at Coles or Woolworths. It's really worth it. I have my grocery bill at $200 or less a week now. When I was just shopping at Woolies if I had it at $300 a week I was lucky..

    I love aldi I do a lot of my groceries there
    I think you save money mainly because you have less choices and less chance of impulse buying.

    Did you get the plain greek? My bub loves the plain. I add fruit.

    As a convert to Aldi, it's true some stuff is not much cheaper. But I find it's much better quality than the comparative, which is usually the generic. Dh is on a protein diet and eats a heap of tuna. For $1.80 I get yellowfin which is really nice. That price is HB at woolies and I find it very hit and miss, often it has that funny overly fishy taste.

    I've been trying a few more bits and pieces from Aldi. My 4y/o disliked their natural Greek yoghurt too. I then pop into Coles to top up my groceries. I get a bit irked when I then see things for cheaper in Coles than I've just paid for in Aldi!! As the OP mentioned, I wonder if a good portion of the savings come from the lack of impulse grocery purchases. On the non grocery front, I do like their $5 children's books.

    I go there for nappies and chocolate. Usually pick up some other random item that seems like a good deal at the time. I am fussy with my food though so don't think I would ever shop there exclusively. Fruit & veg is better and cheaper at our local fruit & veg shop. I bought some Aldi paper towels this week and they're so thin and weak compared to the big brand thick wipes, which I normally buy on special in Coles.

    Ive just recently banned myself from coles and wollies becoz i was spending a fortune every single time i went and not getting all that much actual food it felt.

    On average id be spending at least 250-300 a week at coles or wollies and also getting way to many impulse buys expecially with dd in tow. This last month ive solely shopped at aldis and spent 150 a week getting everything we need including baby supplies. You do have to try and test things to find what you like but honestly as long as we are feed each day and we are saving so much money im super happy.

    Aldi mum is awesome on facebook to get peoples opinions on things too!!

    The nappies are really good. As is the formula and wipes. There are thin wipes and then you can buy the big 240 wipe packs for $8 and they are really thick like Huggies.
