    I too am fed up of seeing the Tesco ads for cheap junk food .

    Me too, oh great I can pick up 8 hamburgers for 97p but they will be crap and tiny. I want cheap, healthy food in large amounts. I know some supermarkets are now pimping these 50p/£1 bags of fruit/veg but they are small and a few pence more in the loose section can get about 500-1kg more, especially with potatoes.
    Buy for value not cost.
    Feb Grocery = £55.87 / 80

    I've also noticed that since Tesco "rebranded" their value lines, their prices have gone up - although I also appreciate that goods are going up anyway :)

    Eg, Their value mushrooms used to be £1.29 for 750gms. They are now sold as "Market Value", in smaller boxes (350 gms max?) for about 75p (Going from memory here)

    Milk is hugely expensive now. I choose to buy organic, but often I time it for when the reduced milk is being put out and buy it all and freeze it :) I very rarely pay full price and have never had any problems with it.

    think we need a cheap staples thread so we can find those essentials at their cheapest without running in and out of each poopermarket

    I cant make sence this recession, people have not got nuf money, so supermarkets, newspapers etc.. put their prices up to keep their profit margins high - really they sell less cos people aint got nuf money and dont buy as much. As for a free market economy; well dont get me started, the basxxrds (companies) been robbing people for ages an now they are getting bailed out by goverments (taxpayers/us again) double whammy - i say let it all slip n slide

  • You will also find that waitrose are making discount offers that are the same as those seen on morrison adverts. This is a big sign that price wars are going to start reducing prices in bigger grocers.
  • Another item which has really made me cross is the Value Line beetroot. Didn't have any jars of beetroot at all for a spell in our Extra store. It has now appeared at the front of the store at 45p when the equivalent is 19p and 20p in Asda and Morrisons. I was so irate I pointed it out at CS. They couldn't believe it but that is as far as it goes. I would liked to have tackled the manager!
