    Oh, I'm a sucker for their weekly specials!! 🙈🙊 I love checking out their App to see what goodies are coming out each Wednesday and Saturday 😁 Other than that, they have cheap bananas and their nappies are the best out of all of them for my two chubby-bubba's 👶🏼

    Hmmm they have a paper shredder coming up in their special buys... I don't need one. But it would be fun 😄

    I love Aldi. Only been shopping there less than a year.

    I love:

    Their chocolate is amazing!
    Tofu
    Basics like biscuits, cereal, museli bars, dried fruit and nuts, passata, coconut milk, curry paste, pasta, flour, butter, milk, yoghurt
    Vegies
    Toliet paper
    White wine (I've only used it in cooking)
    Moscato - pretty decent for the price
    Cleaning products
    Most toiletries (deodorant, toothbrushes, soap, razers, make up etc)
    Cheese sticks
    Frozen vegies (these are great!)

    What I buy elsewhere (usually Coles):
    Bread (cheap)
    Some meat
    Eggs
    Some fruit and vegies depending on $$
    Cat food
    Cheese! Love the coles cheap 1kg block.
    Nappies
    Nappy wipes
    Feminine hygiene products
    Sometimes toilet paper
    Washing powder (Ecostore)
    Dishwashing powder
    Coffee

    I also hate Aldi. Annoys the crap out of me.

    Why?... The whole store is messy and disorderly. The price tags (cardboard thingies) are difficult to find for items. Their so-called "specials" are always turfed and rifled through. They charge a surcharge for credit card use. Their fruit and vegies are limited in range, and dubious in quality. Their checkouts "opening and closing every few minutes" with those annoying announcements. Having to pack your own stuff, and not being allowed to do so yourself at the register. (It's bad enough having to unload it onto checkout, put bags back in trolley, put into car, take out of car, bring into house, put away in fridge/pantry/upstairs!!). Their paper towel does bugger-all, useless in the kitchen.

    I used to be a loyal Safeway girl, but they seem to be increasingly expensive. So these days I shop at Coles. Their Coles brand is usually quite good value, and for the most part, very good quality. Their stores are generally well laid out and clean.

    Truth be told, I am probably just too much of a snob for Aldi. I'd rather just send our butler out to Coles to do the shopping

    (I am not serious, of course).

    VP...1 bottle of wine every fortnight? 1?? Sorry, I don't understand. Makes no sense. Only 1?

    This,

    We love Aldi & do the bulk of the shopping there each week.

    My FIL was an Aldi weekly specials addict, he loved that crap! The toys he would come back with for our nephews 😖😂

    I'm not an Aldi fan. I've tried a few times but one thing I really hate is all of the extra packaging their food has, it makes me feel guilty. I'm also a bit of a snob about figuring out how ethical something is so I try to stick with particular brands I know have ticked certain boxes.

    I like their cordial and nappies but don't go there for much else.

    Takes time to find your groove but we love Aldi all our fresh produce is locally sourced we know where the meat is coming from and the fruit and veg are great. The meat is cheaper and better.

    I loathe aldi but still shop there fortnightly for basics and top up weekly at markets. Woolies gets delivered once a month for anything aldi doesn't stock. Aldi is a PIA with 3 kids.

    Eta. We spend about 130-150/week on all food/groceries/baby products.
