tRicci says: Yes, I hear what you are saying, and agree. I have found that the suprising thing about specials is that they are often the best when they come from stores such as IGA and Aldi. Would you agree? Reply

tRicci says: Ah Flyingace, I do not eat cat food. However where I live the Aldi store is 93kms away as is the Safeways & Coles stores. So when I go to town I generally only shop a Aldi. I do hwever go to Safeways for the tea I drink. Reply

Kel says: Hello. I have to also agree with you on that one as I have shopped at aldi before and I have found that they aren't that much cheaper than the supermarkets so I just stick to shopping at Coles or Safeway. Reply

di di says: I also think looking at things on special is a very good Idea as everything is so expensive thers days and buying things on special and putting them away is a good Idea too.

kreative says: for me it is finding gluten free, preservative free or safe, low fat, sugar and salt and if using sweetener, that it is natural.

I also look for specials but am also on the lookout that the special may not always be the cheapest per unit or might be really poor quality. Believe it or not, some generics are quite good, others I would not touch.

I spend the majority on fresh produce at the markets. The taste and freshness (which means it lasts) is incomparable. Reply

flyingace says: Hi Kreative yes I find the generics brands just as good as the others and I would love to buy fresh food from the markets but its in the city and trying to find carparking is very hard. Reply

kreative says: we travel to get to them and pay for parking but it is only $3 so we find it worth it. Perhaps there are others? We have several in Brisbane all over the place but usually means travel to whichever. I don't like the one mid week from the one time we went but Saturday morning is awesome Reply

Miss Prim says: Thank you for your get well wishes for my husband but our doctor told us it is something he will probably have for life. I am a budget shopper and have always been so, which has really been helpful to me in life. I scan the store catalogues for specials and map out a route when I shop, so I don't have to double back. I don't need any clothes and a friend recently gave me money for my birthday and I bought two pairs of shoes so I am set for a long time now. Reply

Miss Prim says: Hi flyingace, with the salt is it because of a health problem, that would be a hassle as most foods have salt in them and some too much. I don't like grocery shopping but it is a necessary evil. I am not into shopping but I do like browsing ops shops for items for my craft work. Shopping for my craft work is much more interesting than grocery or clothing shopping but I don't do much of that either. Reply
