Taking the time to write down what you want will give you more time to think about how you could make extra savings too.
Go own brand
Consumer champion Martin Lewis has previously told households to take part in the “downshift challenge” which involves going for supermarkets own brand products.
He estimated it could save people 30%.
So opt for the “own” ou “value” products next time as opposed to the “finest” type lines.
Buy wonky products
