Reduction times: Discounts are added to deliveries

Britsuperstore director Richard Price has shared his top tips when buying food this Christmas, including “online shopping”. By shopping online “you can skip the queues and also see what the supermarkets are offering and what’s in stock as they have delivery slots and click and collect available,” he explained.

Substituting national brands for the lower priced store brands is also key this winter. “Buying own-brand products can often reduce the cost of your supermarket store by 30 per cent, according to a MoneySavingExpert,” revealed Richard.

He also recommended using discount stores, such as Home Bargains, Poundland and B&M, which are “excellent for good value branded food”. He said: “Go to Lidl and Aldi for own brand budget spirits – no one will notice if it’s in a punch or a cocktail! Also ask guests to bring a drink of their choice too to help save at all costs.”

This Christmas it’s essential to buy in bulk as “bulk bags and bulk products usually always work out cheaper, so stocking up on certain items will help you save money in the long run”. Warehouse clubs or wholesale clubs like Costco or Food Warehouse are usually good options for bulk purchases.

Finally, he warned: “Don’t just shop at eye level! It sounds silly, but you can often find similar items for much less if you look at the shelves above and below you. This is because marketers tend to charge full price and more place. expensive items right in front of you. Some items will be marked down, especially for Christmas, so make sure you do some digging to find the right deals.”
