I just made myself a cuppa tea with some cheapo tea bags I've been avoiding like the plague and actually, they're not too shabby. Any good cheap stuff in the shops that are nicer than you thought? Could be a way to save money
#2
I just buy tea when it's on offer. £5 for 320 PG tips tea bags <3

Tesco value chocolate and Tesco value crisps. Both lovely. I always buy cheap flour and spices too.
Birds Eye value fish fingers.

I go for supermarket's own-branded stuff most of the time. I can't taste a difference alot of the time considering I can be a fussy eater but I am saving lots of money.
#7
Also, biscuits from Aldi. Aldi always have great bisquits.

British chocolate is lovely. Period.


Also, @Kensai: Euro Shopper is amazing. 7,50 kr (10 sv.) for a great 100g of chocolate. Can't ask for more.

Furthermore, we don't need cheap booze when we've got "Söta Bror". (a.k.a Sweden)

European chocolate in general is nice. Thank god for chocolate laws!

Also, own brand lemonade and coke is always fine.

I would disagree with the own brand drinks. And Morrisson's do their own brand "lager" haha. 94 pence for four! That's gotta be horrible. Where are these cheap PG Tips you said about? I like PG Tips

The printer ink from Canon.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I never said anything about own brand lager xD
That was at Tesco when they were on special offer.

Over here in the UK Canon ink and printer manufacturers' ink is the most expensive. There are cheaper brands that are just as fine.

delicious, and they're only 50c here

They don't import that over here. We usually get people to bring it back from the Philippines for us.

Anything from LIDL, except their alcohol.

there's nothing wrong with some of our booze. The cherry brandy is the funking balls with coke for £6.

The Sainsburys own brand stuff can be cheap as chips and is absolutely lovely.

Morrisons Donuts are the best donuts every made. End of story. Miss them dearly.


Also Asda Cherryade and Lemonade, and their sausage rolls were amazing.

You've obviously never had Krispy Kreme doughnuts... It's like Johnny Depp had sex with Keira Knightly and the doughnuts were the offspring.

There's nothing like the taste of pesticides on your veggies

Also, another good buy is misshapen veg (from sainsburys) and broken biscuits. Nothing wrong with them apart from the shape.

+1 Then you look at how much you used to pay for the Kellogg's cereal and you wonder why you spent that much.

Yeah, sadly, this is true. Sometimes, the named brand are the best choice.

Rice.

A pat of butter at the bottom of the rice cooker, and maybe a dash of garlic salt?

Perfection.

You know those cheap azz store brand cookies that are like 1/3 sugar and 1/3 sawdust and 1/3 icing flavored cement. I saw that crap sitting there for a buck so I wrecked half the bag at one go.

I've heard they're actually pretty reasonable actually.

Never understood why PG tips is so popular. Tastes dirty to me.

Definitely also gotta be supermarket value cheese. My brother insists they add cheese flavouring to it to make up for the lack of cheese. Tasty as hell, mind. If I'm feeling for mellow and I want cheddar, it's my preferred choice.

Hmm, I'll take your word for it about the lager haha! The tea is nice. I love tea. And the cheese, I completely agree, despite having some applewood smoked in the fridge. That stuff is the sex.

It's like McDonald's Milkshakes, I've heard (I don't believe them), that McDonald's put chicken fat in it to thicken it or something. I don't care. Tastes DAMN good and I drank it before I knew that, I'm gunna drink it now.

17p Pot Noodles, from Tescos. They don't taste great, but, hey, 17p! Also, their 17p coke. It tastes crap, but it's cheaper than water xD

I buy my cookies at Aldi. They're honestly some of the best there are:



Only home made ones or stuff from cafés beats these.


I like to bake and sorry for being a smug bastard, but my chocolate cake is pretty legendary. And I find it does not make an ounce of a difference whether I use the cheapest ingredients for it or the premium stuff.
