    I share in your shock Sejay.

    I got Tesco Value 'wheat biscuits' the other day instead of Weetabix- NOT recommended. It tasted like an insole wrapped up in some hay.

    I agree on Lidl's, yes it is very basic in it's appearance, but they have some great non branded products and are very cheap.

    Most of the 'value' stuff is exactly the same product with crap packaging. Some people are too snobby to buy cheaper looking stuff even if it is a better/same quality

    I'll only buy certain "value" products, e.g. tinned tomatoes. However, I can be really particular about certain things (especially cheese, as I work in the industry) but also meat and loo roll.

    I love people's shopping habits etc, so much so I wrote a 15k word dissertation on them! x

    There are certain things I would never compromise on. Toilet roll is definately one of them as is washing products.

    I never buy the value meat, I only get meat and chicken from the local butchers and free range.

    my husband pointed out i was a hypocrite lol as i will eat the smartprice chicken (soz but av gotta cook for 3 kids lol) but will only buy free range eggs as cant bear the thought of the cheaper ones.......strange i know but in an ideal world i could afford free range everything.....husband thinks the chicken/eggs things hilarious and we always bicker about it when shopping however i ALWAYS win lol :)
