Do you often buy Sainsbury's basics/ tesco value/ ASDA smartprice or other own brand products? Are they a cheaper equivalent or lower quality?

I buy own brand products as much as I can, as I don't generally see any difference, except in the price. I'm fairly budget-conscious, though, and haven't really branched out into the more expensive brands. I won't buy eggs from battery/ caged hens though - I draw the line at that as I'd rather pay a bit more than encourage that sort of treatment. I wondered what other people's views were on cheaper foods or other supermarket products.

We always buy own brands they taste just as good or even better, I used to buy supermarket loo rolls and kitchen rolls but have found costcos own brand the only thing is you have to buy in bulk but they definately are better especially the kitchen rolls. I do buy proper bread as dont like the cheap versions, but the other bakery items in own brands are just as good

I often find that its not that much saving to buy the cheapest brand and often the taste means that I would spend an extra 5p to 10p and get something that I really like.

Yes I have started to buy the own brands now. I started to compare the prices with other brands and you can save quite a lot of money; although Heinz baked beans I could never change for own brand.

ive been buying own brands in the last few months mostly from Tesco and like you dont see any difference except in price the quality is very good ..im lucky enough to have a neighbour who has rescued 12 battery hens so i save her all my peelings ect and have eggs from her .I also shop at lydles and get a few bargains there .. i think we all need to go for value range food and save some cash when ever we can *

I always notice the difference in terms of quality - there are very few items where the quality hasnt been cut to save money - i do however believe in bulk buying from local farmers - a huge sack of spuds for two quid. I also think that cheap cuts of good quality meat which is well cooked can taste outstanding. I save money by buying good quality stuff which is cheap, reduced to clear, in season or bought at the market. i am with you on the battery eggs - we buy from a local farmer free range which is 50p cheaper than a box from the supermarket. We also make nearly everything from scratch - we feed our family for a fiver and cook big things like shepherds pie and lasagne which last quite a long time and feed plenty of hungry bellies.
