    Hi everyone just a quick update on this thread. On the BBC consumer programme You & Yours Sainsburys is the most expensive on a standard weekly shop and Aldi the cheapest.

    Their bread today, 800g soft wholemeal is 35p and the Grants whisky is on offer at £17 per litre.
    Sugar is 70p against Lidl at 55p and Long life Milk is 11p per litre more expensive than Lidl.
    A bit like my local Co-op supermarket, you need to hunt around for the best value. Definitely not on my list for a weekly shop. Ditto Tesco.
    Heron , Iceland and Morrisons are overall cheaper but Lidl and Aldi have the edge.

    But they have reduced their prices on medication. Still cheaper to buy them elsewhere. Only time I will buy them if ever I get spend £xx and get £y off. If I'm a quid short of £xx, then I will get them

    I've sprained my wrist and GP said to try ibuprofen. Last week I was away and popped into a Tesco local. Packs of ibuprofen were 40p. I remember the price as it was the only thing I bought. Today I checked them out in Sainsbury's and they're 45p. So 12.5% more. When I read the small print on the packaging, they both come from the same supplier in Wrexham.
  • 25p for ibuprofen in ASDA, but those ones come from Devon!
