I'll start the ball rolling with a few of my favourites:
Is Aldi Australia selling PCs? Most popular item in Germany, they even have their own brand.

They tend to have different variety gear every week. Sometimes they'll stock something for a month or so and sometimes they're a computer or TV. But they never have them permanently and only ever have limited supplies. And I'm assuming they're ALDI's brand as pretty much everything else is.

We're planning to buy an Expressi for the office now that they have Hot Chocolate pods - only 1 of us in the office drinks coffee, but Hot Chocolate will be good!

The hot chocolate is prett weak really. I found if you push the small button twice it is not bad, but if you want a proper hot chocolate you might want to look elsewhere. Just my opinion and I would check the espressi thread for more opinions.

Loving our Expressi. Bought it maybe a month ago now, guy in the store said Hot Chocolate will be out later in the year (I don't drink coffee, however the wife does). Came back a week later and the Hot Chocolate was on the shelves already.

I found a dash of milk, touch of milo and pressing the "large" cup twice makes a solid hot chocolate in my opinion

Went and picked up some cast iron cookware that went on sale this morning.

They had heaps of stock (about a pallet-full of each item) but it was super busy, so not sure how long they are going to last.

Super chuffed - got all this for $55.

Forgot to get a stick blender though.

Been wanting a cast-iron fry pan for a while, saw these in the catalogue but was a bit undecided on the enamel interior coating on the frypan. Went in store and had a look (I wanted the griddle anyway), dark blue frypan was raw iron inside. Yay, picked up griddle, fry pan, roasting tray and dutch oven

Their rechargeable batteries are good, and some of their wines are awesome value for money. Also, their Schloss beer is top notch if you like german beer.
