Shopping Guide

  1. Make a list and keep to it! It is very easy to be tempted once you are there into buying things you don’t really need.
  2. Don’t shop on an empty stomach – you will be much more tempted to buy stuff you don’t need.
  3. Try your local market for fresh fruit and veg, it can often be cheaper than the supermarket. If you go late in the day, stalls are often selling off produce cheaply to get rid of it. However, rule 1 still applies, don’t buy what you don’t need.
  4. Club together to buy things you all use as bigger packs are often more economical.
  5. Look out for supermarket own label and value ranges.
  6. Larger supermarkets often have aisles devoted to world foods; you may find some staples (e.g. rice, tins of pulses), herbs and spices to be much cheaper here than in the standard food aisles.
  7. Try out the cheaper supermarkets rather than just the big 4.
  8. Every shop tries to tempt you with offers; 3 for 2, buy one get one free, remember that they are only really a bargain if you are going to be able to use it all before the sell by date!
