In the current climate I'm sure we would all like to save a little money on our supermarket shopping. I know I certainly would, and since being made redundant, I have tried to do so each week. I seemed to be succeeding until recently, when the price of food has increased and I have found my shopping trolley costing more each week.
Therefore, today I am going to share with you some money saving tips which I have recently found useful to help lower the cost of my supermarket shop each week.
- Do your weekly shopping one day later every week - you will save one week's equivalent shopping every eight weeks.
- Write a list and stick to it, or go in with a list of essentials, and buy items on offer at the supermarket to create meals.
- Shop alone - I don't know about you, but I always find that my supermarket bill is higher when hubby or the kids are shopping with me.
- Do a meat-less shop. It is a well known fact that a vegetarian or vegan diet costs less.
One other big way I have tried to save money is by switching from leading brands to shop brands. Switching from leading brands saves money, and you don't always have to compromise on quality as often, the products are made in the same factories and are essentially the same product repackaged in many cases.
This infographic recently released by Aldi shows how switching only four leading brands can save money each week.
Aldi have also begun a TV campaign to let people know about the savings they can make by switching to shop brands. This one is a particular favourite of mine. These noticeable savings are definitely a reason to visit Aldi, especially as Aldi was recently named Which? Best Supermarket based on customer satisfaction, value for money, reliability and quality.
