There is a store you may not have heard of that can be cheaper than Aldi with bargains starting at 70 cents.
Motos is an online supermarket that sells surplus or short-term inventory.
The products are no longer sold in major supermarkets but are still completely safe to eat.
It is possible that they are past their best by date but still have a shelf life.
It first launched last June and sells a lot of popular items for less than the original price.
Brands include Walkers, Coca-Cola, Heinz and Kellogg’s.
Shoppers can even save money by shopping at Motatos – and it can even be cheaper than the bargain supermarkets Aldi and Lidl.
For example, at the time of this writing, Motatos is selling a pack of 20 sturdy garbage bags for £1.40 – that’s 70 cents for 10 bags.
For comparison, Aldi is selling a pack of 10 bags for £1.69, so if you use Motatos you’ll save 99 cents.
We also found 10 packs of 330ml Diet Coke cans for £4 on Motatos but for £4.69 at Aldi – a savings of 69 cents.
Another popular product they both sell is Minstrels and on 100g you’ll save 38p on Motatos.
That’s because on 100g you’ll pay 82p at Motatos but £1.20 at Aldi.
Not all of the items we checked are cheaper than Aldi, so make sure you compare prices first.
If they are of different sizes then you can use the ‘price per 100g’ calculator.
Remember we compared branded items.
Aldi, along with other supermarkets like Lidl, sells its own popular items and these can sometimes be cheaper.
You should also compare prices with other stores.
Although all products on Motatos are sold for less than the original price, other supermarkets may have deals at that time.
You should also factor in delivery costs.
Motatos charges £2.99 for all deliveries but is free for orders over £40.
Is there anything similar out there?
There are also social supermarkets that people who are struggling with the cost of living can join.
There’s Your Local Pantry, Community Grocery, Community Shop and Company Shop, all of which provide discounted food and essentials for low-income people.
They are not always available to the public, so you should watch them online as you may have a couple nearby.
You can also ask your local council as they will have information on social supermarkets in the county.
In addition, Too Good to Go is an app that allows you to rescue end-of-day food from many popular cafes, restaurants, shops and supermarkets that would otherwise have been put in the bin.
All you need to do is download and set your location on the Too Good To Go app, and you can choose from nearby stores that list their unsold food at a reduced price.
Similar to Too Good To Go, you can search for nearby food to grab based on your location through the Karma app.
You can then purchase meals at a discounted price.
However, unlike Too Good To Go, Karma will tell you what kind of food you’re getting, so the potential for food waste is even less.
No waste is a great way to stay organized, as you can scan your food and list it by expiration date, name, or category.
It makes it easy to know what you’re running low on, so you don’t double up on items in your next store.
The list can be shared with your family so you can give away unused food, and you can keep track of how much you’re wasting by deleting items you’ve eaten or that have run out. expiry.
How else can I save on my supermarket store?
There are many other ways to save on your supermarket store.
You can try looking for yellow or red stickers on products that show when they are on sale.
If the food is fresh, you will have to eat it quickly or freeze it to eat later.
Sometimes, even timing your store to stock up as soon as items are on sale on the shelves can help you get the best deal – many shoppers say this is usually on evening.
Making a list can also save you some money as you’ll be less likely to make a rash purchase when you go to the supermarket.
Using your own brand can also be an easy way to save hundreds of pounds a year on your food bill.
That means looking for products in the “private” or “value” categories instead of the “best” or “luxury” categories.
A lot of supermarkets also run enticing fruit and vegetable programs where you can get them cheap if they’re warped or imperfect.
For example, Lidl runs the Waste Not program offering 5kg boxes of fruit and vegetables for as little as £1.50.
