Tue, 12 Oct 2021 15:20:00

This week's best supermarket buys include $1.99 mangoes, 89c Mars Bars, $7.99 for 1kg of chicken breast fillets, $1.30 for 95 Kleenex tissues, and $5 for 4 Messina Gelato Bars. Yum!

Aussie shoppers can now see 'Australia's cheapest grocery basket' each week, filled with more than 30 of the top specials and lowest prices going live at Coles, Woolworths and Aldi on Wednesday mornings.

I've scoured the latest catalogues for consumer network One Big Switch to assess who won the week on the most popular grocery items and a range of seasonal specials.

Each Wednesday, when the weekly deals go live, you can use this new bottom-dollar shopping list as the starting point for your own weekly shop.

To maximise your savings, pick and choose where you shop based on which specials you really want this week. If it will keep, stock up on the half-priced items.

Who has the best deals this week?

Aldi has the best deals this week on popular categories such as avocados, mangoes, chicken breast, toilet paper, dishwashing tabs, sunscreen and chicken nuggets.

Aldi also has baby supplies in the middle aisle with 60 nappies for $14, plus car essentials (jumper leads $25) and cast iron cookware (3.7L Dutch oven $25).

Woolies has the best deals on popular categories such as cherry tomatoes, muesli bars, coffee, paper towel, spring rolls and mushrooms.

Coles has the best deals on popular categories such as tissues, jasmine rice, Twinings tea, Colgate toothpaste and Morning Fresh dishwashing detergent.

Coles also has half-price Nivea sunscreen, deodorant and shower gel, 40 per cent off cosmetics, 30 Flybuys points per dollar spent on Apple gift cards & half-price Messina gelato bars.

How do we choose?

We have not listed every special or 50 per cent discount from all three supermarkets, nor every low price.

To simplify things, we've boiled it down to what we consider the best specials and everyday prices advertised on the most popular grocery products, based on information provided by Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

To decide which specials were the winners this week, we looked at a combination of unit pricing, practicality of packaging size, popularity and seasonality.

If an everyday price was cheaper than all the specials this week, we chose the everyday priced item unless stated.

Where two supermarkets have identical or very close prices on similar products, such as Smiths Crisps and Doritos, we've called it a tie.

We've based our analysis on catalogues for Sydney, postcode 2000 — but be aware that catalogues in some states may differ.
