Aldi may have been awarded ‘Best Grocer’, but which is the cheapest supermarket?
Using the cost of 77 popular branded products across the year, including items such as Andrew toilet roll, Cathedral City cheddar cheese, Hovis bread, and PG Tips tea bags, a comparison site looked at which supermarket had the cheapest prices. Here are the results.
A Which? survey found that Morrisons has the cheapest basket at a cost of £156.46.
Asda just missed out on the cheapest spot, with an average basket costing £1.53 more than Morrisons, at £157.99.
As well as having the cheapest average cost of a basket, Morrisons was also the cheapest basket for six months of the year in 2018.
Aldi’s home gym range recently launched starting at the low price of £2.99.
From kettle bells and dumbbells to a rowing machine and a cross trainer, the new range is full of super affordable gym gear.
As part of the store’s Specialbuys range, once the equipment is gone its gone for good – so customers will have to act fast.
