I hate Aldi. I find it depressing for some reason. That said I do buy some things there for $$ reasons. Their dairy is very good and comparable to the big brands. Their organic milk is actually ok but I don't like homogenised milk so will only buy it if I don't have time to drive over to my usual milk (it's the only thing I buy at Supabarn).
The fresh produce at our 2 nearest Aldi's is shocking so I don't bother. We go to a market instead. At first the grass fed beef was very good (according to DH - I'm vego). But about 7-8 months ago they have clearly started stocking 'old' beef. DH says it is tough and the flavour is too aged.
The specials each week are definitely worth keeping an eye on. Some of it is just rubbish. But I did pick up 100% merino wool hoodies for DS when we first moved to Canberra for just $14.99 each. They were great for our first winter and he has outgrown them rather than outworn them.
I definitely don't know how people do their entire weekly shop there.
Off topic but as far as people managing to feed a family of 4 on $150 (or thereabouts) a week. Wow just wow. I am in awe of your budgeting skills - feel free to throw some my way 😄
