The best Aldi specials this week

Aldi is shaking up the supermarkets duopoly of Coles and Woolworths.

The German challenger has captured the hearts of bargain hunters by cultivating an image of "always low" prices, even though that might not be numerically true.

The strategy has worked a charm since its entry into the country 19 years ago, with a study last year finding Australian shoppers have "an emotional connection" to Aldi.

Woolworths and Coles would give an arm and a leg for that level of customer loyalty.

Yahoo Finance each week picks out the most attractive specials from Aldi's Special Buys homewares and Super Saver groceries for the coming 10 days.

We hope this will help you plan your grocery shop, although keep in mind that Woolworths and Coles' half-price grocery specials are more heavily discounted.
