Hunt out the best deals
Look out for special offers
Most supermarkets' websites will advertise special offers - like ‘buy one get one free’ - so you can find out what's available before stepping into the supermarket itself. Just make sure you can freeze whatever you don't need immediately.
Check out the 'reduced to clear' shelf
Usually if you do your supermarket shop towards the end of the day, the discounts will be greater. Most supermarkets have a 'reduced to clear' shelf so this is always worth a browse. Just be careful as these items will probably have a short 'use by' date on them, so either eat them quickly, or freeze them if you can.
Visit the deep discounters
Budget supermarkets such Lidl, Aldi and Netto have become a big hit with many shoppers because you can often find better deals there than in the major supermarkets. They manage to keep prices low by reducing shop overheads. You’ll save money here, but don’t expect a free plastic bag!
Buy in season
If possible to save money, try to buy vegetables that are in season. Check out the Eat The Seasons website to find out what's in season now.
