This week at Aldi you can get a 6-pack of eggs for just 79p. The next best price for more at Sainsbury’s, where the same quantity will set you back 95p.

Meanwhile, over at Tesco, you can get 500g of margarine for the low price of 95p, which is cheaper than anywhere else barring Aldi where it’s four pence more at 99p.

And finally, you can get 1ltr of orange juice for 60p from Aldi, however Tesco is also selling the same size product for 69p, which isn’t too far a stretch.
