i am trying to cut my food shop down a bit more i dont really currently by any value.products except asda orange juice so i was just wondering what value products u buy from what supermarket that u would recommend.
We shop at tesco, I buy value biscuits, value fruit / veg (surely a carrot is a carrot??!!), value butter for baking, value apple juice, value sultanas, value tinned tomatoes sometimes, value tissues for the kids to use at school, value chicken breast if nothing else is on offer... I think that's pretty much it. I think the tesco value biscuits are absolutley no different to their 'normal' range - the same for the long life apple juice.
I guess it is a case of trial and error to see what suits your taste - try a few things and then if you don't like them, at least you won't have wasted loads and loads of money!
Sainsburys basics, pretty much all their products are really nice, the basics apples are really crunchy and have more flavour than the normal Sainsbury ones and they are huge! Same goes for most of the other Sainsbury's basic fruit and veg. Their part bake baguettes arw the nicest I have ever tried and you can make a gorgeous garlic bread with them too. their pitta breads are smaller than some but they are proper authentic pittas (most of the normal range ones are full of soya flour, preservatives and other junk). The nappies and wipes are good, the wipes are not very moist but they have a very short ingredients list with nothing spectacularly bad in there and seem better for sensitive skin than the little ones sensitive ones! Their handwash soap is really good too it's about 35p for a huge bottle I was expecting it to smell of cheap lynx for some reason but no it has a lovely fresh grapefruit smell. It's also cruelty free (as are some of the other basics toiletries) xx
I don't buy many basic things - Sometimes mushy peas? Lol. But my room mate is a manager at sainsburys and comes home with their biscuits/naan breads/pretty much everything on odd occasions and it's all been lovely x
I used to buy pretty much all value stuff apart from crisps. Never had any problems.
To cut down your bills, try Iceland for meat, toilet roll, milk and frozen stuff and go to another shop to get value fruit, veg and tins. Thats the cheapest way i have been able to find to get it all done.
