For one household, that has meant making a simple lifestyle swap - leaving them with an extra £90 a week on average.

Writing on Mumsnet back in 2018, the user “Cath2907” revealed they had been spending more than they had liked to on their weekly shopping, and needed to save some money.

In order to do so, this shopper decided to switch where they did their grocery shopping each month.

“For a family of three (two adults and a seven year old) it was costing me close to £150/week in Tesco,” they wrote.

“I swapped to Lidl and now spend £60/week.”

While the majority of the shopping may now be done at Lidl, the Mumsnet user explained that they do still revert to their former go-to store in order to pick up certain items.

“I still have to pop to Tesco once in a while to buy a few things we like that Lidl doesn't stock but it is still a HUGE saving,” they explained.

The Mumsnet user explained that the savings weren't necessarily all due to a difference in the prices of products.

Rather, swapping where they shop has meant they kicked the habit of picking up items that weren't going to be consumed or required.

They explained: “Some of it is cheaper products but most of it is less of the tempting stuff I used to buy that we'd not eat or didn't need.”
