What is the main thing on your shopping list that is pushing up your bills?


Or have you changed to budget?

Well i am shocked at my shopping bills the last few weeks, i seem to be spending heaps. I cant work out why it is up so much really. I did an online tesco order today and i got to £90 then thought i had better stop but i will still end up in my local Sainsbury on thursday to finish off what i have missed off todays.

where do you work esim64?

Have reverted to buying my items mostly BOGOF from Morrisons and shop at Iceland which I do find a lot cheaper but they haven't got many well known brands..I just buy what I need for a fortnightly basis..where as before I would chuck anything and everything in the basket.

Bread is almost certainly doubled in price and vegetable oil.
#12
Pasta 1kg pack increased from £1 to £1.50 at Iceland also 1kg Rice was £1 now it's the same price but HALF the size!

Our bill as doubled as well, we spend around £100 a week but end up fetching a few more bit throughout the week. Ive started using this site "my supermarket" you shop as you would if you were doing it online, put everything in your basket that you need from that shop and it will compare Asda Tesco Sainsburys and Ocado and tell you which one is the cheapest on that day.
If you want it deliverered and you have an account with any of the above, it links to that store and puts in in your basket and you checkout as normal, so you can still use your tesco vouchers etc

You dont have to checkout you can just use it to compare, worth a look if you want to save some money. By shopping at tesco last week our shop was £14 cheaper Asda. You can also see all of the special offers for each supermaket.

Go through quidco and you get £1 for registration and £4 for you 1st shop.

Happy Shopping

Cats have had their food relegated.
Was buying Whaiskas at Asda. I am sure it was £2.56 or £2.86 now £3.16 for 6 tins.
Cats are now having KiteKat..
Next week might be Asda own.

Well, the Veggie oil has obviously gone up 'coz they have cottoned on to people using it as fuel, lol :p

Mike..

lol, well nothing like saving money! :p
#25
great shopping link above, im suprised that i could have got the items cheaper in Sainsburys, maybe i will cancel my order with tesco
#26
Essentials have gone up.

I mentioned marge (a little sarcastically) in another thread, eggs (jesus what an increase - I now get them direct from the chickens), bread (I now stick to the cheapest wholemeal)

I don't buy brands apart from the occasional Quorn dishes. Me and my partner are going to try and survive on £15 - £20 a week for supermarket food, she's off to uni full time in September. It's do-able - or at least it was.

I do it every week, some weeks there is a big difference because of the offer they have on. Costs nothing to do just a bit of your time, that what I say and as tesco say every little helps lol

My parents manage on about £80 a fortnight as they shop around and dont buy big brand names and that includes snacks, plus when I come the amount of money spent doesnt really change.

But it all depends on family size.

Flour has gone ridiculous and you can't even get the malted/grain half the time.
#31
Its only gonna get worse!! :oops:

I tried buying cheap cat food for her ladyship (<<<<< thats her). She wasn't having any of it. I persevered for a couple of days thinking she'll eat it if she's really hungry. HA! caught her stealing Bonnie's (the cat next door) and she still wouldn't eat her own cheap cat food. So basically I lost and now buy the expensive pouches again :x
#33
Got to be bread.
#34
Milk is £1 to £1.44.

Potatoes seem dearer too.

Our weekly bill has gone from about £80 down to about £30 now. I just use the tesco codes to reduce bills and only ever buy in bulk when things are BOGOF (e.g. bought 200 cans of heniz baked beans last month @ 24p a can. just ordered 200 cans of napolina chopped tomatoes working out at 28p per can). Much cheaper in the long run. Also spent £200 on a greenhouse 3 months ago and must of had about £150 back from it already in free tommies/cukes/chillis/lettuces etc. Iceburg lettuces work out at 1p each compared to £1 at tescos :)
#36
Why do you by in suh bulk? 200 cans?!?!?!
#37
me and my missus, spend ca 90 quid every two weeks at tesco. then once a week I tend to visit LIDL for fruit and veg, drinks and yoghurts-it's sooooo cheap over there. all in all about 120 every two weeks...
#38
50/50 bread was 90p for ages then shot up to £1.20 in one day
#39
They hold it and then reslise that other place have it at a higher price so they make theirs that and more too. :p

because these BOGOF offers dont come along regularly on certain items. We easily get through 3-4 cans of tomatoes a week as we cook every day. 200 cans then is only 1 years worth of stock. Cans keep for 4-5 years so we should buy more really if we want to save even more in the long run.

We got heniz backed beans for 24p only a few weeks back and noticed yesterday they are now 58p a can in tescos. So thats a saving of £68 for just baked beans for the next year or two! :w00t:
