Then again maybe our local Aldi doesn't have the range... I just don't understand the fuss.

Don't get Aldi but ....
I think it can depend on where you live to how much it saves you... Ours has really good meat n fruit n veg with a quick turn over and it's heaps cheaper. But we don't have farmers markets, meat whole salers ect so compared to the butcher ect we make huge savings. It's really changed the products we were eating meat wise as before we started eating Aldi meat we were living off snags, mince (beef n chick) and gravy/chuck beef now for example I got steak, snags, chicken tenders and a roast for this weeks teas big difference
Things like nappies and wipes are very child dependant. Someone said Coles nappies were good but I tried them a few weeks ago n the girls both woke up wet threw in the morning but I find nappies/wipes are just different needs for everyone!

Eggs, bread, tinned tomatoes, passata, flour, sugar, condensed milk, cheese, veges definitely cheaper sometimes, ham, spices, toiletries, cleaning products etc.
Last week I got cauli for $1.50 each at Aldi but woollies had it for $6.98 each. Bananas were $1.50 and at Coles $3.50 a kilo.

We get everything we can from there and only go to Woolies for things aldi doesn't sell.
We don't eat much processed food at all so most of our shop is fruit, vegetables, cheese, milk, rice, tinned tomatoes for cooking etc.
It IS a lot cheaper than our local Woolies in general.
I simply couldn't afford to do all my shopping in Woolies or Coles.
I use their nappies and wipes for both my kids. Their crackers are great, the chocolate is yummy too! Dips taste great.

I forgot to mention their grass fed beef. Beautiful quality. We buy the rib fillet. Marbled and tender.

I also don't think you can compare the cheapest stuff in Coles to the Aldi version always. For example I love their smooth blue cheese which is $5. If I buy the cheapest comparable portion from Coles it may be $6 but terrible in comparison whereas the more comparable cheese is $8.50. Or their grass fed beef might be $21 a kilo whereas a budget rib fillet which isn't as thick or juicy at Coles might be the same price but the Aldi product is more comparable to the $32 a kilo grass fed rib fillet at Coles. Of course white sugar is white sugar, but I think on some things the generic brand isn't directly comparable. If that makes sense?

It was mentioned in here somewhere, not that I'm an addict or anything ()
BUT is their chocolate made here or imported?
This is very important.
It means I'm either coming straight home from school pick or I'm emptying my boot ASAP to load up on the way home
