With the purse strings for most families getting ever tighter, and no sign of the situation improving, many of us have cut out the luxuries and are now looking for ways to save money on the essentials too. Here are our tips on how you can do just that, how to save money at the supermarket, every week.
1. Use sites like Approved Food which sell clearance food and drink from the supermarkets and their suppliers. This is not just out of date products, which by the way are perfectly fine as long as it's not the 'use by' date that's been passed, but a lot of Approved Food's stock is simply in the wrong packaging, either because it's been redesigned, or it carries an out of date offer or promotion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this food, and you will save a fortune!
12. Look out for the red and yellow special offer labels, but make sure they ARE bargains first. What was the before price? What's the single unit price? What's the per kilo proce in compaison with other brands? How much will you actually be saving? What's the expiry date, and will you actually use this product in time?
