Surge in Supermarket Bargain Hunting

Apparently there used to be a stigma attached to looking for cheap deals and using discount vouchers at the supermarket, but the economic recession has made the practise more acceptable.

Do you have a fixed shopping list or do you buy what's on special offer?

Do you feel any embarrassment in handing over piles of coupons at the checkout?

What about the RFQS (reduced for quick sale) shelves. Do you not give them a second glance, a furtive sideways glance as if not really interested, or push your way to the front in case you are missing something?

Perhaps you do it all on line and don't demean yourself by joining in the rough and tumble at the physical store.

On the last day of each calendar month, some big supermarkets like to 'get rid of' stock dated best before 'end-of-month'...31st of August is the next opportunity to grab a bargain.

I spent hours in Morrison's last week doing a big shop with my better half. We had both decided to have a go at losing a few pounds before we both head off in different directions for a while. I was told that Morrison's have the best labelling with regards to calories and as I say we spent hours pouring over the details of everything we were buying. We didn't give two hoots for what the cost of an item was as long as its calorie content was low but at the checkout our choices weighed in much cheaper than our usual shopping.

Hope it works.

I think you have a new dieting slogan there

"Calories cost pounds"

I use Asda, as it's reliably cheaper than the other big Three. It may be dearer in some products than Aldi & Lidl, but I very often can't get a full shop from there, so end up going to Asda anyway.

I always check for discounts, bogoffs and Whoops'd products (Asda's RFQS stickers have whoops on them, so the goods are in the Whoops fridge).

I also make sure I check my receipt online the next day to print off my voucher if anything was cheaper elsewhere due to offers
