    Almost impossible to do a proper comparison -You need to allow for lots of variables such as

    How many adults / children

    Do you drink alcohol /branded fizzy drinks/bottled water

    pets


    £95 would be okay for a family of four , but excessive for a single person

    Just under £15 for milk, bread, yoghurt, veg, meat and frozen veg for dog.

    For two adults.

    Got a freezer full of human food and cupboards are full of stuff.

    This poster just poses questions, usually pointless, and never responds.

    We had some vouchers from Waitrose, spend £20 and get £4 off. We bought 2 lots so spent a total of £32. Spent it mainly on special offers and reductions, got a beautiful piece of lamb less than half price

    Point of interest, our market town only has Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. Nearest Aldi 46 miles return, Lidl 14 miles return
