DITCH BRANDED & SAVE £500!
Consumer expert and shopping editor Giselle Wainwright has scoured the shelves to find the ultimate own-label ranges so you can save a packet without compromising on quality
Tesco Honey Nut Corn Flakes, £1.45. “This favourite breakfast cereal is less than half the cost of the top brand, but you could never tell in a blind taste test.” SAVE: £49.20 a year based on buying two boxes a month.
Morrisons Yeast Extract, £1.88. “Spreading this on your toast could save you nearly a £1 on the leading brand. Fans will be just as happy with the salty taste and spreadable consistency.” SAVE: £9.12 a year if you buy a jar per month.
Sainsbury’s Tomato Ketchup,
60p. “It’s difficult to mimic the nation’s favourite, but Sainsbury’s does the best version. Sweet and tangy, you also get way more for your money than the top ketchup choice.” SAVE: If you go through a bottle a month, you’ll save £15 a year.
Aldi Mamia newborn nappies, 85p for 24. “Essentials like nappies can soon add up, so keeping costs low without compromising on quality is key. This range is a mum’s favourite, thanks to their great fit and absorbency – and you get more for your money.” SAVE: Up to £327.60 a year, based on two packs a week.
Aldi’s Magnum Washing Up Liquid, 49p. “It cuts through after-dinner grease easily and leaves plates gleaming.” SAVE: Based on a family buying two bottles a month, you’ll save £24.24 a year.
Aldi Nutoka, £1.09 for 400g. “This indulgent chocolate spread has the same thick consistency and nutty flavour you love, but you’ll save yourself more than £2 a time.” SAVE: £24 a year if you buy a jar a month.
Asda Mayonnaise, 70p for
500ml. “Mayo is a fridge staple and everyone loves the branded version, but it’s pricey at £2.96. Asda’s own-brand tastes great and spreads and mixes just as well as any other.” SAVE: £27.12 a year if you buy a bottle every month.
Tesco Ms Molly’s Milk Chocolate, 30p. “Ms Molly’s is Tesco’s new bargain confectionery brand. So far, their dupes of biscuits and chocolate bars have been spot on, but the milk chocolate is the best supermarket downgrade I’ve found for best for price and taste – you get that gorgeous creamy, milky taste for a fraction of the cost.” SAVE: Compared to buying a bar a week of the leading brand, you could save £62.40 a year. ● Giselle is the editor of The Sun’s loyalty scheme, Sun Savers.
