As the cost-of-living crisis continues to ravage the country, it is unsurprising that most Britons want to find the cheapest supermarket offers and deals to lower the price of their weekly grocery shop. Some supermarkets are cheaper than others, but one has been crowned the most affordable of all: Aldi.
Aldi has been crowned the cheapest supermarket in the UK for the eighth month in a row.
Consumer group Which? conducted its monthly cheapest supermarket price comparison by looking at the cost of a basket of 48 items, including groceries and household essentials.
The latest research shows that last month Aldi was a huge £25.68 cheaper than the most expensive supermarket, Waitrose for an equivalent basket of items.
Which? also revealed Aldi to be £11.77 cheaper than Tesco and £13.62 cheaper than Sainsbury’s per basket.
Sainsbury’s was next on the list with the supermarket’s basket costing £95.65.
In sixth place was Morrisons with a basket costing £96.58, whereas Ocado was next with a basket of 48 items costing £100.87.
In final place was Waitrose, with its basket costing an average of £107.71 for 48 items.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “We know just how important it is for families up and down the nation to find ways to cut costs anyway they can, and at Aldi we are dedicated to keeping prices low and quality high across all our products.

“The latest findings from Which? show that customers can save themselves over £25 on just one basket by choosing Aldi – that’s not just pocket change.
“The fact that Which? have found Aldi to be cheapest for eight months in a row is a testament to our commitment to our shoppers.”
