I have been buying this for years and suddenly occured to me just how much I love it and how little it costs!

Tesco everyday value hair gel 15p! It's not too sticky, nice smell and fits in my hall table drawer smile

What do you love that costs very little?

Sainsbury's basics chocolate and their basics cornflakes.

Sainsburys Basics Cornflakes. I used to love the Basics Baby Bath & Baby Shampoo (for me) but they discontinued them and brought out a 2-in-1 which is rubbish

Aldi white chocolate buttons, 35 p for a big bag.

Couldn't live without tinned tomatoes either which are 30p ish.

Oh and also tinned potatoes, 15 p for a big tin and fab in fritata or bulking out soups which have turned a bit watery. I always have a tin in the cupboard.

Tesco Everyday Value rubber gloves. Can't remember the price but a pack of three pairs lasts for ages. They're so good I make a special trip to Tesco just for the gloves as they're so much better than Sainsburys version

Tesco paracetomol less than 30p

Asda Smart Price nappies. £1.50ish and don't leak, are gender-neutral and keeps my dd's skin nappy-rash free.

Sainsbury's Basics tea bags. I go to Sainsbury's just for them when I go to town.

Make a nice cuppa compared to Asda watery ones. Haven't tried Tesco Value ones in years but they used to be so bad.

I love smart price super noodles 19p a packet

Another vote for Aldi tinned potatoes. Love them and they're only 15p. You can make a lovely veg curry with these - cut them in half and add some onions, tomatoes, sweetcorn, spinach, in fact any leftover veggies you have lurking in the fridge. Add some coconut milk and spices and you have an amazing curry. Absolute bargain!

agree Sainsburys t-bags basic's

jonicomelately Mon 29-Sep-14 10:48:48

Aldi anti-histamine. I think they're 79p. They are really good.

TrisisFour Mon 29-Sep-14 10:56:38

Asda Smart Price Tortilla Chips (49p for a big bag)
Asda Smart Price Toffees (29p for a big bag)

Both of which I have in the cupboard and neither of which I can eat because I've started my diet again today!!

Oldraver Mon 29-Sep-14 10:57:23

Aldi soft cheese 49p

GailLondon Mon 29-Sep-14 11:05:12

ASDA value tinned sardines 34p. Great for cooking with.

Redpriestandmozart Mon 29-Sep-14 21:00:35

Excellent, love it that most stuff is under 50p smile

Tesco everyday value Jaffa Cakes...Better than proper branded ones, they are the best as verified by everyone I get to try them.
Morrisons savers peanut butter. Perfect chunky nut/smooth blend

Sainsbo's Basics feta and mozzarella. Wouldn't really want either in salads, but both great for cooking.

Sainsbo's Basics kidney beans.
