Sorry not AIBU but shameless posting for traffic!

I am up early to go get bits for Christmas. I have Asda is one direction, tesco in the other, both huge.

Which one should I go to? Which one is generally cheaper?

Thank you! Xmas Smile

Well, by not boycotting the stores in the UK, it will at least help to keep the people working there in a job won't it?

I find asda vvvv expensive so tesco cheaper for me but it really depends on what you are buying.

If all the supermarkets were equidistant I would choose Tesco. I like the quality, pricing, layout and choice. They often have longer, or no restriction, for parking. Often no coins needed for trolleys, and more trolleys with 2 child seats. Parent and child parking is more generous. The clothes are better quality and price. Aisles and checkouts are wider.
I like in this order, for various reasons:

I prefer Tesco’s and find them cheaper so I’m surprised people are saying Asda is cheaper. I disagree

Hi all thank you so much for your replies!

Ok so I went to Tesco. It was great well stocked not too busy (getting busier as I left) and I managed to get everything apart from dry roasted peanuts (I did have some but also have teenagers who are like locusts)

I was talking to one of the night managers in the alcohol aisle Wine and he said it had been rammed all night long queues even at 3am, he said there was nothing left on the shelves and they took over £1million in sales yesterday alone! It is a huge store.

To the pp that said about their local you live near me lol cos mine is the same, retail park in the area means it gets rammed!

Anyhow it is now all done. Turkey collected from m&s and no room left in my fridge. I am setting up the dog to guard the kitchen as I now have teenagers circling and I do want some bread and snacks left for boxing day!

So plan is to start preparing soon but in reality I am sat watching TV and it may be done it may not!

I must admit I did my prep this morning but I am having a very lazy year with most things bought in i.e. Yorkshires

You're trusting The Dog to 'guard' the Christmas food?

PP: Aldi


Glad you got your shopping OP!

Well ok maybe not the best plan! Especially as he has now snuggled in next to me and even though I know I should be getting stuff ready we all know the dog/ cat rule that if they come in for a cuddle all other plans must stop.

However I have full eyeline of the kitchen door.
