    Coles Coles Comfie bot nappies are great too.. I have been using since Bub was about 3 months old after a lady from my mother's group told be about them. They are very similar priced to Aldi's ones. $11 for a bag.. For a bag of 70 for the smaller sizes... 44 in a bag for 15kg plus size that my 2 yr old is in.

    I love Aldi I have been using nappies and formula on my baby and no problems.
    I like their cheese, grain bread, meat, tuna, eggs and the prawn dumplings are awesome

    We tried the bread...it was too thin and not as tasty.....yes it was the plain Greek yogurt.
    We still have the butter to try and some rump steak. Mandarins were alright, have not tried the apples yet, there washing powder is over powering and it's still in the box.

    I've just recently converted to Aldi. There's not really any particular products I love or whatever, I mainly did it because Coles and Woolworths are just so EFFING expensive! With a big blended family to feed it is saving a tonne of money on lots of everyday basics. Once I converted it suddenly felt like we could eat well without it costing so much, which is a huge relief.

    The main things I still go to Coles for is ham/deli meats and random stuff like Glade 'Sense & Spray' refills, large freezer bags (my Aldi doesn't seem to have them)...stuff like that. If I take a shopping list with me I can generally get 98% of it at Aldi. There's not much they don't have.

    Agree about deli meats. We go through a lot with 2 kids at school and packing DH's lunches and the packaged Aldi deli meat is gross. I haven't tried the ham but the breast chicken and turkey is like slices of plastic

    Dh has an omelette for breakfast everyday so we buy the $5 4pk. It's crp and slimy! By the time it's fried you don't notice though. I just brought the 'shredded' chicken breast. Pffft, that rubbish is sliced chicken luncheon.

    Hollywood do you live rural ? Cause i haven't found any difference in price from Aldi to Coles branded stuff. When I've been on holidays to places in Vic 3-4 hours away their supermarkets are generally more expensive.

    Yeah we do. Maybe that's why? Aldi is literally a third of the cost of equivalent groceries at Coles or Woollies.

    Love Aldi. Their organic products are great and good value (milk, butter, yoghurt, pasta, tinned tomatoes, mince etc). They also have a decent selection in their gluten free range. The eye fillet steak is great as are their dairy basic - cheese etc. The canned tuna slices with chilli are my favourite. They also do a great premium trimmed bacon, Parma ham and prosciutto. I only go about once a month and have certain products that I always buy plus whatever else I need. My shops are not cheap given what I buy but compared to buying same at Coles/Woolies it's considerably cheaper. It took me a few shops to work out what products I liked and there are some things I wouldn't buy again but overall many of its products are fantastic.

    Those who have been at Aldi for a while - have they redone your local store? Both my local stores have had shelves installed (I know that sounds weird). I am finding it easoer to find stuff and prices to go with said stuff.

    Speaking of the organic stuff - the tofu is really good.

    The smoked salmon I bought was also good.

    DH always hated Aldi bacon but the last one he bought was heaps better (shortcut).

    We always buy steak from Aldi. Also sausages. Although their European sausages have changed recipes. DH complains they always split now.

    Not sure what is in your town @Hollywood (and I am not necessarily trying to purposely avoid Coles/Woolworths) but I try and get the 'home' things not available at Aldi at The Reject Shop before going to Coles/Woolies. So much cheaper.

    I love The Reject Shop.
