What the!??!?
Why does Adelaide not have Aldi!?!?! That is SO cheap!!! Strawberries here at the moment are $3.99+, they've been on specially rarely for $2.99.
Although it doesn't REALLY matter to me right now as I can't have fruit *sulks*

You should try them Kate. Our average weekly bill for 4 is around the $100 mark. That includes dog/cat food and 90% of dry goods and dairy. I do not buy meat, fruit/veg or bread (can get cheaper and better locally) from aldi. They also have other items - got a great guitar for $70!

I am pretty fussy about some things too - so end up doing a woolies shop every couple of weeks to stock up on those items. But many of the Aldi items are just as good as other brand names....

No, I don't have shares......

I think Aldi is German? So not many local products - mostly imported stuff. You have to pay cash or they sting you for a credit card charge. You have to pack your own groceries, queues are enormous... but damn, they are sooo cheap!!!

The other benefit of Aldi is that forces price competition between the supermarkets. It's known that suburbs where there's an Aldi, the nearby Coles and Safeway will have cheaper prices.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Milkyway, I never pay cash and Ive never been charged any fee :shock: ...I think it depends on which day/time you go as to the amount of ppl (like saturday mornings are nuts, so i usually go friday morning or wednesdays) a lot of the canned/ long life stuff is german and imported, but all the dairy/meats/vegies/fruit (perishable stuff) is made/grown here in aus, they have signs on the walls that say they are made from Local Ingredients, and 99% australian made etc....The packing your own bag thing is a big pain in the butt though! :cry: You get used to it though....and I used to work at safeway on register, so I pack a mean grocery bag! :lol: LOL
