How to Save Even More Money with Budget Supermarkets
12 February 2018 @ 13:08

Budget supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl seem to be the best places for most of us to do our shopping these days. Sure, they are good and in general, we don't seem to mind that they look a little bit different, and may not be as fancy as other supermarkets like Waitrose.

Make Up Your Own Bulk Buying Deals

But did you know that knowing how to make the most out of your local budget supermarket can save you even more money? Of course, it is important to check out their offers online, and that is part of the beauty of budget supermarkets. They love to promote their deals, and learning how to take advantage of those deals can save you even more money. Shopping in my local budget supermarket the other day, I noticed that many shoppers were still planning just one week ahead. Planning long term is yet another good way to take advantage of deals. If fresh peppers are cheap, why not make the most of the offer, a and stock up on them. It is easy to freeze peppers, and buying a couple of kilos to freeze, will save you a lot of money.

Sneak in Late to Your Local Budget Supermarket

I don't normally have the time to go shopping in the late afternoon, but the other day I happened to stop at Lidl as they had a special offer available. To my surprise, many fresh products were reduced by 30% and I managed to get at least one week's supply of fresh meat and fish which saved me a small fortune. Yes, we all know that many mainstream supermarkets reduce their fresh produce in the afternoon, but most of us presume budget retailers don't do so.


Planning ahead, and meal planning is perfect for you if you are a dedicated budget supermarket shopper. I think that you can save much more money if you only make the most of budget supermarkets. But feeding a family of four for £2 per day is something that I do not believe in.
