Following on from another thread where do u all do your food shopping?

Every1 is feeling the pinch at the moment so would be nice to see if we can help each other save the pennies.

I normally go to asda and have just priced this weeks shopping- which consists of fruit, veg, lenor, vaporesse some herbs, juice and crisps for school and it's £83shock

Not sure whether I should go elsewhere too see if I can get cheaper. Normally get fruit n veg weekly from local food co-op but lately it hasnt been the best quality

butchers for meat, local store for cleaning produce as it seems to be very cheap which is strange for a local shop hmm, green grocers for fruit and veg. used to be tesco for everything else but dh has started winning asda vouchers from work grin

herons frozen food shop <maybe just a northern thing?> is v good for cheap dairy and frozen food too.

Meat, fish and veg at Waitose and farmers market and dh's dad who works at a farm.

Tins, nappies, bulky stuff - Tesco or wherever I spot offers.

If I'm feeling flush - I do love Waitrose - its always such a pleasant shop to walk around - its a different world to Asda. Today I had an online delivery from Tesco - don't like them much, but I can't take another trip around the shops with the kids. Sainsburys is good but pricey and we have a local Morrisons (good for offers) and an Asda too (I love their indian food in there). So basically I need all of the above for different reasons.... When I come back from holiday I am going to start up the veg and meat box scheme and do the rest online once a month and see if that helps the pennies.

Tesco, Farmfoods (fab shop and not all crap) and Asda.
The small town I live in has a Tesco Metro, Co-Op and Farmfoods. I avoid Co-Op as it's expensive, Tesco is OK and Farmfoods have some good things. The milk is cheap, fishfingers, oven chips, cereals, condiments etc are so much cheaper than anywhere else.
I buy my toiletries in Semichem.

I do an Asda online once a month though to stock up. The other shops are for top ups

Ocado and M & S - more expensive but I find I only buy what I need and don;thave to throw manky fruit and veg away like when I shopped from Tesco or Sainsbury.

asda once a week and the co op for any extras between times. I spent £25 at asda yesterday and will prob spend another £5-£10 on milk, fruit and stuff I have forgotten during the week.

poshtottie Thu 14-Aug-08 18:44:52

as dh is away I tend to shop in Waitrose as am spending less, though today went to Tescos as it is easier to park.

River nene farm for veg and fruit £20 per week including del.

Ethical superstore for all ecover produts and tinned food,£70 every 4 months including del

Meat from butchers £80 per 6-8 weeks

Milk from milkman £12 per week

Local health food shop for soya stuff, suncream and ds fruity bars and juice for linche boxes £38 per month.

Bread from local shop £3 per week.

There is me, DH and DS not sure how much it works out on a weekly basis but whn we gave up supermarkewts last November we were saving around £150 per month on food bills.

An Aldi convert here.

I've got my weekly shop down from £70 - £80 at Tesco / Asda to £50 / £60 at Aldi.

There's a few things I have to go elsewhere for though, Pampers and Shredded Wheat spring to mind.

Definitely worthwhile though.

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 14-Aug-08 18:57:33

Just worked it out at roughly £46 per week, so much less than i thought.

lucysmam Thu 14-Aug-08 20:40:30

Asda and netto for proper fortnightly shops then depending how far I can be bothered to go for top ups, co-op at end of the street, tesco up the road or netto at the other end of the village. Spend around £40 per fortnight for everything plus top ups around £20 throughout the 2 weeks between shops

Tesco recently. But last night's meat was rubbish and totally spoilt our evening meal.

Jambuttie Fri 15-Aug-08 08:17:32

Well last night on way home from Scottish Slimmer and needed to get shopping( went all prepared with my list)

Went to Aldi and was £36 and then asda £35 so splitting it between shops I saved a tennergrin

Although not sure I can go from shop to shop each week lol

I get my meat etc normally from costco - but it in bulk and it last months.

Lizzylou Fri 15-Aug-08 08:21:09

Tescos or Ocado with meat from farm shop and butchers, milk from milkman

SpandexIsMyEnemy Fri 15-Aug-08 08:29:47

am considering icelands and somerfield as it's our local ones, with the butchers & veg shop as well. but not sure if they take my HE vouchers or not.

any thoughts on what they're like - will load up the pushchair so will save the money on fuel there as can walk. won't be getting meat form icelands.

VictorianSqualor Fri 15-Aug-08 08:35:23

Normally fortnightly online with Tesco(about £160), it's the only supermarket in my town, but we're going to try Lidl in the city tonight as everyone keeps raving about it and just get a veg box delivered the week we don't do a big shop.

Jambuttie Fri 15-Aug-08 09:06:54

Somerfields so expensive in our area. HE is that healthy start vouchers? Know our somerfield and food co-op take them sure most placed do now
