“If I didn’t have to buy groceries, I’d be rich” is something I’ve heard from the average Aussie MANY times. Groceries are a massive cost-of-living concern for households, and Covid-19 has only made that concern rise.
One way to save money, says Rachel Clemons at CHOICE, is to purchase supermarket brand (also known as ‘house’ or ‘own’ brand) products.
In CHOICE’s most recent grocery basket price survey, it was revealed that the Coles or Woolworths brand basket was 40% cheaper than the equivalent leading brand basket.
However, sometimes the aesthetics of a supermarket brand, doesn’t live up to the nation brand equivalent. Due to this point, CHOICE took a look at which supermarket holds the cheapest national brands – comparing the prices between Coles, Woolworths and Aldi.
