Sainsbury Basics versus Tesco Value Range ...

Where applicable!

Today we had to go to town to pick up some more cheap wool (new type on special offer until it goes, at least £2 a ball cheaper I reckon).

Then other little things got added to the list until finally, we were able to do a much needed spice/herb buy and a few other things. Not wanting to spend further money by driving to another supermarket, we used the one in town, a gentle stroll to get to it, amongst other shopping.

Here is what we needed:

Pasta, long grain rice, Sultanas, Instant Mash (for potato bread), butter, ground cumin, whole cumin, celery salt, onion salt, garam masala.

We also needed some streaky bacon but on this occasion, chose not to use basic/value brand.

Anyhow, the upshot was that Tesco was 51p cheaper simply because they didn't have any onion or celery salt in their value ranges. If they had, they would have been £2.71 cheaper. 

We were right on this occasion not to drive to the other supermarket as we felt sure this would have used more than the 51p to do so. Just goes to show, you pays your money and takes your choice.
