While I would love to buy everything Australian made or owned, my budget doesn't stretch that far. So I did a bit of investigating around my home to see what Aussie made products I already have. I will be the first to admit that I have the united nations living in my pantry and bathroom cupboard but I was pleasantly surprised to find I had many Australian made products.
My trips to the supermarket have taken on a whole new meaning too. I've found that Aldi stocks many Aussie made products with the symbol proudly displayed on the outer cardboard packaging on the shelf making it very easy to identify.
If you live in another country then I'm sure you'll be doing your best to support locally made products too.
Below are some of the Australian made products I found around our home. Please keep in mind that some were purchased a couple of years ago so the country of origin might have changed since then. Also, this blog post is not to be used as a platform to debate whether certain products should be consumed or used or how much they cost. I'm budget conscience and always buy at the best possible price,
The dish washing liquid on the left is my latest bargain find. It comes from Aldi and costs 99 cents for one litre and works fantastically well.
The skin repair cream on the right is used to remove make up especially around the eye. I just use a tissue.
All these shampoos were bought at rock bottom prices. Tresemme often comes on a half price special.
Sukin products come on sale in the supermarket or can occasionally be found at clearance centres at rock bottom prices. Lynx products often half price in supermarkets. Tilley soaps ( candle pictured ) is Australia's oldest 100% Australian owned soap manufacturer.

Flour is flour and sugar is sugar. No need to buy the fancy brands when even the home brands are made in Australia from Australian wheat. Campbell's soup come on a half price sale especially during Winter.
A few more Australian made groceries I found in my pantry. Lemon Crisp biscuits are the only store bought sweet biscuit I'll buy ( and only when on sale ).
