COULD you be saving more on your supermarket shop?
Most of us love a BOGOF, or the reduced-price aisle, but there are other regular savings you can bag. Here are some of the best . . .
Getty – Contributor Take our tips with you and feel like a winner when you hit the supermarket aisles
1 – ALDI: Its Specialbuys have long held an allure for bargain hunters and often sell out.
But did you know it’s best to visit the store on a Thursday or Sunday, when the new offers come in?
For example, this Sunday the store has a range of luxury bedding up for grabs, including a pack of two support pillows for £9.98.
At other retailers similar pillows can cost much more – up to £30 each.
SAVING: £50.02 when buying two pillows
2 – ASDA: Its “rollback” offers, described as either “permanent or temporary” price cuts, are hugely popular.
For example, snap up a box of three Haagen-Dazs salted caramel ice cream bars for just £2.50 — down from £3.89.
3 – LIDL: It regularly has Middle Of Lidl deals which offer certain product ranges at great prices.
Last week shoppers were treated to low-price DIY goods including a Parkside air sandblaster gun for just £9.99. The same product retails for around £22 on eBay.
These deals are also introduced every Thursday and Sunday — so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.SAVING: £12.01
4 – TESCO: It often has great half-price promos. In the run-up to Valentine’s Day, chocolate selection boxes were on offer.
But everyday items also get the special treatment, with Tesco Weekly Little Helps deals.
For example, shoppers can currently nab a large selection of pizzas for half price, including the Tesco stonebaked pepperoni for £1.80, down from £3.60.
Beautiful bread bin, but is it priced only for the upper crust?
Why pay lots of dough for a bread bin from Next (£28), above, when you can get an almost identical one for far less from B&M (£8.80), below?

READER’S SAVING TIPPaula Miles, from Nottingham, says: “When shaving your legs, use a cheap hair conditioner instead of expensive shaving foam. It also gives a softer, smoother finish.”
