Where do you shop?

Where do you do your main shop guys?

I love Sainburys but as there isn't once local to me now I mostly shop at Tesco or Aldi. Tesco I prefer home order from since Sainsburys slashed the nectar points and Aldi is literally down the road so that is my fresh stuff 'top up' place ... I had the long queues and the rushed experience but they have some amazing deal!

I shop a lot in Aldi and have recently been using my local butchers for meat.

I have also found ASDAs fruit and veg not to be too great over time.

Ocado/Waitrose isn't listed but that's what we use. We live in the sticks so mostly have delivery. The only other one that delivers here is Sainsbury's and they let us down a few times so we switched and never looked back. Ocado also match Tesco for price or give you money back and they have an amazing selection.

I use them all except Aldi and Lidl. Ours is small,untidy and veg and fruit goes off to quick for me.Also I don't buy bread,biscuits cakes or tin stuff so I don't need to find where the cheapest of these are.

I use Musclefood for my meat and the others for the rest of my shopping.

I look to see what offers are on and what I need that week to which one I get home delivery from. I try and stock up with toilet roll,kitchen roll etc once a month.

I pop over to Morrisons or Sainsburys if I need something during the week.But it's not very often I have to do that.

Today I have to go over to Sainsburys as their burgers today and tomorrow are half price.

I'm not a fan of Lidl but have found Aldi to be good just not for long shelf life like you say but then I have only started using them because they are practically my 'corner shop' distance from me.

I have used musclefood, not bad I thought but without the offers I'm not sure it comes out any better quality than I can buy local;, what's your thoughts huntress? Thanks for the tip on the burgers, it's not close by but should be passing it today or tomorrow to take my Aunt over her new iPad.

Tends to be Tesco at the moment but we have a Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Asda nearby too. We use MySupermarket to see what deals are on

Use Aldi sometimes for veg

I've not found anything wrong with their meat and chicken but don't like their sausages much.The steaks and bacon medallions are good.

I have to be careful what I buy as I am Gluten free. Thats why I am stocking up on Sainsburys burgers.

Probably don't save any money but I like to make sure I have meat in the freezer for the month.Then when I send OH shopping he just has to worry about getting the veg. I find not much water comes out of their meats/chicken.

I just wish you could use more than one offer code at a time.
