I saw in Tesco "drum" of Tesco Gold Coffee 400g £7.50 (I didn't need it, only 1/2 way down Douwe Egbert 400g) Then I noticed Tesco Gold 200 was £1.38 per 100 g, compared to the "drum" £1.58 per 100g. Seems trivial, I know, but all adds up.

when we are shopping. My partner is like supermarket sweep and I'm comparing the price of everything per g or kg.

I can remember them being £5 and almost cried when I saw they've gone up £7.50.

It's getting absolutely ridiculously!

And that's why you should shop based on price per kg/litre etc not the shelf price or assume that buying in bulk is better.

But lets be fair Tesco own drum tastes like my nan strained it through her knickers.

A tip when its like one of the lower shelves and its like too small writing on the label... I take a pic of the label and then can increase size to view the writing... I rarely take hubby shopping now...he thinks I m a crazy women and that suits me fine.

It really does all add up. It’s learning which shops do the better deals. I’ve been buying the boxes of 32 walkers crisps at Iceland for £6.50 (they had seemed the better deal). Farmfoods are now selling them for £5.99. A 1-minute walk across the retail park saves me another 51p. Farmfoods are good for pasta too. I also get all my dishwasher rinse aid, dishwasher cleaner and salt from LIDL - really good too.

It’s trying to remember which shop has the better deals. I mainly shop at Aldi though.
