I’ve recently been buying more and more tesco own brand food. I’ve been slipping bits in here and there. Even their value washing powder ( which I can confirm washes just fine) on this weeks big shop I ordered the majority of things from tesco own brand.
I’m doing it for a couple of reasons , I don’t have much money atall so it makes sense to get more for less money. Especially as the kids are all growing with appetites increasing at alarming rates.
Also I think my kids are quite spoilt , because I have virtually no social life I don’t go out drinking and partying and I don’t drink at home , And also save money by buying clothes in primark and asda I probably spend the majority of our money on food.
But they need to really learn and understand about the value of money.
I’m going to take them shopping to buy food to donate and them take them to a local food bank so they can see how ungrateful they are moaning about own brand good. I don’t even buy the value brand. Apart from cleaning stuff.
Tescos own brand products are just fine. I’m very fussy about lurpak I usually will use morning else but thier butterpak is just a good. The bagels could be a bit more bagelly but over all it’s all perfectly good. Milo even seems to approve of the value cat litter.
I’m afraid the kids are going to have to get used to it. Because I’m shopping much more sensibly from now on.
