affordable supermarkets in Melbourne?

Can anyone give me recommendations on where to purchase relatively cheap groceries?
I am unfamiliar with Australian stores so I am unsure of which ones are considered cheap, high-quality, or organic, etc.

Thanks!

Woolworths and Coles are the most popular .
ALDI is consider the cheapest although with a smaller range of products.
Many people use all three and take advantage of each stores specials.

If you are looking for frozen foods, vegetables and other household items, then Laguna Oriental and Hometown Asian Supermarket is best. And if you are a cheese lover then go to Spring Street Grocer in Melbourne.

Shop at Aldi. All of their products are cheaper than Coles and of the same quality.

Fresh produce and even some pastas, markets, queen vic in the city, preston, south melb, footscray or farmers markets. If you eat meat, I would recommend finding your local butcher, higher quality, better prices.

Aldi is ok, I'm not 100% sold that it's THAT much cheaper. Their fresh produce isn't great ie. Fruit veg and meats. Shelf and freezer is alright though.

Cleaning products it depends on how picky you are, reject shop stocks a lot of decent stuff in terms of cleaning for bathroom kitchen and laundry if you're on a tight budget.

Coles and Woolworths are those i’m visiting, you can also try this for cashback options sometime, not much of course, but better than nothing 🙂
