Aldi is fast taking market share from Woolworths and Coles through a public perception of consistently low prices.

Although the always-cheap image is not necessarily factually true, research this year showed Australians had developed "an emotional connection" to Aldi that they don't feel for the other supermarkets.

The same study also predicted Aldi Australia would transform the current Coles-Woolworths duopoly into a 3-way battle within the next ten years.

One warning though, is that Aldi's grocery Super Saver deals aren't as steeply discounted as Woolworths and Coles' regular 50%-off specials. But Aldi's products likely come off a lower normal price to start with.

For your shopping convenience, Yahoo Finance has pushed the trolley around to pick out the best of the Special Buys and Super Savers in the coming week:
