Here are this week's best grocery specials -


*  Vegeta Stock 180g-250g 1/2 PRICE Was $3.59, Save $1.80  Now $1.79 each.  This is the best price I've seen Vegeta reduced to.  Well worth stocking up as it might not come on sale again until next Winter

*  Dolmio Extra Pasta Sauce 490g-500g 1/2 PRICE Was $3.29, Save $1.65  Now $1.64 each.  Although I make my own,  at this price it's worth grabbing a few jars to donate to charities / churches for Christmas hampers.

*  Imperial Leather Body Wash 1 Litre 1/2 PRICE Was $9.00, Save $4.50  Now $4.50 each

*  Brut 33 Deodorant For Men 150g 1/2 PRICE Was $6.29, Save $3.30  Now $2.99 each.  Norsca is the same price as well.

*   Arnott’s Country Cheese, Cheds or Sesame Wheat 250g Now $1.89 each 1/2 Price, Save $1.90.  The country cheese are a childhood favourite.  At this price I'm almost tempted to buy a box.

*  Energizer Max AA Batteries Pk 10 Now $6.58 each 1/2 Price, Save $6.59 AAA are on sale too.

  1. That pasta sauce is what I am low on....time to restock...thanks heaps Wendy.

  2. Hi wendy. I saw some toothpaste today for 50 cents each. Is it bad to use expired toothpaste?. They expire on the 9th of sep 2015. Colgale and oral b toothpaste at the reject shop.

    1. I don't pay attention to the expiry date on toothpaste. But I would be concerned if it's from the Reject Shop and it's a parallel import. Colgate said it should never have been let into the country.

    2. What is a parallel import?

    3. Parallel, or "grey", imports are shipped in from overseas without the permission of the local trademark owner. Generally they skip the usual distribution channels making them cheaper for the consumer. These products have had labelling problems with not all ingredients revealed.

      My family has noticed the qualitiy is not the same as " the real deal ". My parents bought Colgate toothpaste from a discount store to find it had black flecks in it. When they rang Colgate to complain they were told this product should not have been allowed into the country.

      You really do pay for what you get.

  3. Oh ok wendy. Thanks for that

  4. May I add some IGA specials? They have Lynx body spray/deodorant for $2.70, save $3.20 this week. Also Palmolive shower gel 400ml $3.99, Palmolive dishwashing liquid 500ml $1.79 (this dilutes beautifully 50:50 with water), Helgas bread $2.79 a loaf (an excellent price), Kleenex Cottonelle 48pk $17.99 (21c/100 sheets, not as cheap as Aldi but still a good sale price) and Dove soap 2 x 2pk $4.29 ($1.08 per cake) - they didn't have any pink Wendy,I checked with you in mind :)

    IGA are also price matching with Woolworths/Coles so lots of regular products have dropped in price or are even cheaper than at either of the big 2. I had a lovely time this morning exploring my local Super IGA in detail, I usually just fly in, pick up the sale items and fly out again.

    1. Thanks for the specials Cath. I'm beginnning to think pink Dove soap is a rarity.

  5. I am tempted on the strawberries. I never heard of an expiry date on toothpaste! That one surprised me.
    Today replying to you earlier I remembered something... to start a slush fund for Christmas cooking ingredients! xxx

  6. Aldi have some good produce specials - 1kg onions 99 cents and 1kg carrots 99 cents.
    Also for anyone living on the NSW central coast, Harvest Market at Westfield Tuggerah have shortcut bacon on for $4.99/kg. Not sure how long sale will last, so get in quick! I have already stocked up at this price.
