The cheapest supermarket is…

The most value-for-money supermarket in the UK this month has been named, with consumer group Which? revealing that Aldi was the cheapest supermarket for the ninth month in a row. The research compared the price of the same basket of items at different supermarkets. 

Aldi was the cheapest, with the total shop coming to £74.81 – beating their rival bargain supermarket Lidl by £2.69. The most expensive supermarket in the monthly price comparison was Waitrose. At £96.59, the same shop was £21.78 more expensive at Waitrose than at Aldi.

We’re thrilled to have been consistently named cheapest supermarket for the last nine months.”

I normally see what supermarkets are doing on offers before I go shopping. Sainsburys with Smartshop is a good way to reduce spending on certains goods and the last 3 weeks I’ve had coupons of ” Spend £40 and recieve £8 worth of nectar points “. Tesco’s clubcard has been really lacking lately. I may try Aldi at some point.
