Shoppers are looking to cut costs as much as they can this winter amid the cost of living crisis and growing energy bills.

While the festive period should be a lovely time for families and friends to come together, many of us will be worried about making ends meet.

Other ways you can save money in the supermarket

Know when to shop

Heading to the shops when products are marked down and bright yellow discount stickers are applied can save you serious dough.

But each branch of a supermarket will have their biggest discounts at slightly different times of day.

We put together a handy guide to what time supermarkets including Aldi, Asda, Tesco and Lidl reduce their prices.

Make a list

One of the most common mistakes shoppers make is going out underprepared.

Making a list will help to stay focused on getting the items that you really need, rather than being drawn into impulse purchases.

Swap to own brand

Ditching items with labels like “finest” in favour of “own” or “value” can be worthwhile.

The Sun regularly tests supermarket own brand products to see if they can beat the big brands.

Here we carried out a Battle of the Brands to tell you exactly how much you could save on 15 products.

Don’t ignore granny groceries

Modern items such as liquid soap, shower gel and washing capsules mean you’re paying more for added water.

Switch back to what your gran would have bought, such as solid soap bars and washing powder.

Ariel washing capsules for your laundry can cost up to £11.80 per kg compared to Ariel washing powder at only £3.08 per kg.

Making the switch could slash the average grocery bill by £350 per year.

Shop wonky

Strange-shaped fruit and vegetables taste the same but cost less.

For example, Lidl’s £1.50 Waste Not Scheme boxes contain a whopping 5kg of fruit and vegetables that may be slightly damaged or discoloured but is still perfectly good to eat.
