If you shop for your grocery and everything else with online supermarkets you know that it's a great way to save time, but what if you could save money by buying always your chosen items where they are cheaper?
I live in UK and have found the following supermarket comparison and shopping website, mySupermarket. How does it work?
It’s very simple: look for your wanted product in your favourite supermarket (between Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Ocado), put it into your shopping cart, then the software proposes you cheaper alternatives from other supermarkets, showing you how much you can save. You can choose whether to swap product or not, click on Swap & Save.
You also receive nutritional information about the food you are buying (calories, fat, sugar...) and suggestions about healtier alternatives, just click on Swap & Cut, you can choose between Calories, Fat, Sugar, Salt.
Each supermarket has also an Offers page for each category, with already discounted products, so it's worth checking there first.
Continue shopping until you’ve bought all you need, register, pay and relax waiting for your grocery being delivered to your home. Also you can keep collecting loyalty points with your chosen supermarket and with the website and get further discounts. I think this is a great way to save money AND time.
All items have an expiry date: fresh products (eggs, meat, fruit and vegetables) have a USE BY date, which means you shouldn't eat them after that date.
Then there is a BETTER BEFORE END (BBE) date, for products like tinned food, rice pasta etc., which is actually a recommendation which means the product's quality is best within that date but you can eat them for quite a long time after that date.
Did you know that these BBE products can be sold? I didn't know until recently and found out there are stores selling only products near expiration date at a highly discounted price. Visit one I found by clicking on the picture below, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
