I headed down to Aldi bright and early to purchase my 32" LCD TV today, absolutely love it. Very Happy Paid $249.00 bargain!!
Can't beat the Aldi snow sale either, great stuff on sale.

Have you picked up a bargain that you thought was a great buy?


I can't...I have horseriding

Yep, bought some gardening gloves a few weeks back for $2.49. They are the BEST thing for pulling out a shedding horse coat.

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.

as someone who was a little cynical about Aldi when they first opened up here, I'm finding that I'm buying more and more from there now.

I've experimented with trying various things (foodstuff) and finding that most of it is as good, if not better than the equivalent product I've been buying from Safeway.



and I totally love playing mind games with the checkout chick, by holding all my shopping on the conveyor belt, when she tries to bunch everyone's shopping up. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

OH has always been an SPC baked beans boy but he now buys the Aldi stuff by the carton- and a carton of the spaghetti for my son.
Personally I find their frozen stuff better quality and far cheaper than anything safeway has.
Oh, and the wheat bix! OH and Mr 11 go through 2 big boxes a week so I appreciate cheap stuff my 2 Mr Fussys approve of Very Happy

The day the catalogue sale starts if there is something good (like the tvs, computers, etc) there is always a line up at our local Aldi before it opens Laughing

I have never had any problems with anything electrical I have bought from them (unlike the jaffle iron I bought from chicken feed a few weeks back which broke on first use Evil or Very Mad )

Claire bananna's at Aldi I got today for $5.99 a kilo, must be cheaper in Werribee to accommodate some of the people.

I was exactly the same as you Mac funny enough my husband shopped there along time before me, he always seems to pick up something. I cant bear to shop in Safeway or Coles now the prices are so much dearer and the quality of food at Aldi (except the fruit) is great.

yes, so I discovered earlier this week Mad

bought both apples and manderins and within 2 days, all the manderins were rotten Sad and the apples are bruised. Sad

I've done a complete circle with my shopping these days, and would dearly love to have a green grocer in town. Rarely buy meat from anywhere except one butcher (pricey but good quality meat) and I occasionally manage to buy fruit and vegies from the stall in Myrtleford, but it's a loooooooooooong drive. Sad

Step away from the computer,
I did a big shop at Aldi a couple of weeks ago- $140. I did the same size shop at Coles the other night- $212 Shocked Coles or Safeway are just convenient for me because I can go minus two terrors otherwise I'm ready to pull my hair out!!

Mac, we desperately need a green grocer. It doesn't matter which supermarket you shop from the fruit sucks...and is so expensive. The thing I miss most about Melbourne is my little green grocer Sad

Oh that sucks guys. Sad At least here we have Arnolds and the local Farmer's Market to keep the big two slightly more honest.

Mum bought the gardening gloves recently, and I've bought a huge stack of notebooks (I still like pen and paper, cause it don't break like a computer!), and numerous other things. I got the navy breeches too ... but they're too big for me now and I've never worn them.

I did a shop last night at Aldi for $134.
Last week I went to Safeway and bought the same stuff, but probably a few more fruit and veg things, it was $260 !

I stopped going to Aldi awhile back only because our one was never stocked properly.
Never any meat, there would be like 5 things there.
Well I went last night and it was heaps better !
They must have fixed it.
Was full as, and even had lamb shanks, lamb racks, heaps of stuff !
Was stoked. I will be going back if it stays like that.

Trust me.


And the hazelnut chocolate in the yellow/orange box, I've really developed a taste for Aldi chocolate. I find some food great and some not so great, but the 'other stuff' we have found to be great value every time. Just wish we had a store a bit closer because it adds a good hour or so to a shopping trip going to Sunbury.

I love the moser roth chocoloate from aldi. It's very handy for me because my local aldi has a safeway upstairs so you can shop first at aldi and then if there's anything they don't have, just go upstairs.

And the fruit isn't always bad from aldi, they've had lovely cheap strawberries recently and I've had some very tasty oranges.

Flash Dancer I love that bread but I am always suspicious of anything that lasts that long...must be packed full of preservatives!

Step away from the computer,
Also instead of moving forward when the checkout person runs the belt to bunch the stuff up, I stand exactly where I was... So effectively no more people fit stuff on the belt anyway... WHY would I want to stand THAT close to the person in front of me, squashed in like sardines...

Like at Maccas, ''Wait behind your receipt''.. Ahhh, No. Confused Im going to stand over here, NOT cuddled right up to that smelly person whose receipt is next to mine Laughing Embarassed

Just tried to do my grocery shopping at Aldi. Got some things but they dont have the variety that coles do, to choose the products that don't have bad additives. Crying or Very Sad Pitty.
So back to coles for me.
Love their non grocery bargins though. Very Happy

That is really gross ... makes me think of the Maccas burgers that look the same months later .... dont think ill be buying there fruit bread Confused

I do like Aldis though and do a shop there every week ... I have noticed our local Safeway has been matching a fair few products each week in there catalogue though so i now get the specials from Safeway that I need and finish the rest at Aldis.

I also go to Tasman Meats for my mince and chicken ... so much cheaper and the quality of those items are pretty good and finish at King Broccoli for my fruit and veg .... rarely buy that from Aldis as its always a bit touch and go with what is good and what is about to go rotten.

Level 2
I shop at Aldi, Although I do go to Coles to get a couple of things I cant get at Aldi, I honestly can say I cant complain about anything I have ever brought from there. I have brought the fruit loaf and never had any problems I also buy apples every week from there for the horses nomally about $1.99 a kilo also have been luckly and have never had a problem with there fruit and veg but i must be admitt sometimes they dont have all the fruit and veg i want so anything else I need i get from coles.

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
Kind of spoilt for choice down here, with a fair smattering of Coles, Woolies and IGA as well as Aldi's.

To be honest, as I buy very little processed food, I find Aldi's has little attraction. I also put them on the Equi shitlist after they started selling Chinese knockoffs of my FIL's patented invention.

The local butcher general kills all three for meat prices, (see what I did there?), and the greengrocer seems to be cheaper on some and dearer on other items.

The newly extended Coles at Berwick, (one of the first redesigned under the Wesfarmers banner), is initially impressive until you realise it is solely designed to keep you wandering around looking for stuff.(3 dairy cases, bread products in four different places). I get rage shopping at Coles since they removed all product information from within the aisles, and reduced what was listed at the ends; it's just too bloody hard to find specific items. Parking sucks massively too.

So generally, Woolies at Beacy gets my dollar, except for meat. Although having shopped at Pakenham yesterday, it's pretty clear that some items are locale specific. I guess eye fillet and fresh herbs aren't big sellers in Pakenham. Razz The biggest downside to shopping there, is, I swear the carpark was designed by a four old dyslexic on crack.

If a man says something in the forest, and no woman is there to hear him; is he still wrong?
