Yes and it is worth it. I drive and travel a lot so get stuff as part of my trips to make it more worth the trip
Aldi 3 L milk $2.80 from memory
Only have an IGA whee I live and the same milk costs $4.85. We can use anything from 2 - 4 L in a day. We have a big freezer so might buy as much as 45 L at a time
I buy in bulk and buy specials what ever happens to be there at the time. I get to know when different stores puts out their clearance items and try to buy then. Often and end of the line might be 1/2 price
My last trip to Aldi's saved me over $200 for buying locally

I buy fruit and veg from either markets or fruit and veg shop.
bread from the bakery.
cleaning stuff and baby stuff from ALDI.
Meat from butcher.
only go to close or woollies once every 2 weeks (or longer) for other stuff but visit the above mentioned stores (besides ALDI) at least a couple of times a week.

I was, but now i just go to Woolworths and shop using the specials as much as i can. I still stick to our budget of $150 a week.
I find when i buy from my local fruit n veg shops some things are cheaper, some are more but the fruit and veg dont last as long.

We usually shop at aldi, then woolies or coles for specific things. We get meat packs feom the butchers when needed and bread from the bakery. I find it cheaper this way compared to just doing all of our groceries at woolies/coles

Once every 3 weeks I do shopping at the Fruit & Veg Shop & Bulk Meat (Tasman's). Usually $50 - $75 depending on how much or what I'm getting.
Then once a week I do Safeway/Woolies for everything else, usually $50 unless needing specific 'extra' items (eg: having people over, toiletries, cleaning, etc) which might bump it up to $100, but I generally buy home-brand or items we 'need' when they are on special only.
*I tend too bulk buy then prep & portion size it all & freeze.
