Shopping in Germany, instead of Basel, is dead simple from Basel. Get on the Basel tram number 8, ride it to the last-but-2 stop, get out. Voila. Large German shopping centre with all prices about 50% cheaper than in Basel. You can save about 1000 swiss francs per month by doing ALL your shopping there, in actual fact how much you save will depend on how disciplined you are about never running out to do quick short shops in local swiss shops which will be double the price.
However - to note - this will take you half a day per week in travel and shopping time, so may not suit everyone's lifestyle at all.
