Martin Lewis site shares top ways to cut supermarket bills by hundreds of pounds

Most Brits are feeling the pinch at the minute when it comes to bills, with fuel, food and energy prices all soaring.

And according to recent data, grocery bills set to rise by an average £270 a year.

So to help with that, the experts from Martin Lewis' website have shared their top tips to get supermarket bills down.

Last week, Environment Secretary George Eustice told shoppers to buy value brands to help budgets.

However, most people the lowest incomes are already doing that. So what else can you try?

The experts suggest shopping around online for the best deals.

The website reads: "The best supermarket discount codes come for first-time online orders – there are currently eight big supermarket codes.

"So simply use all the ones you've not used before as a one-off to save.

"These include £20 off £60 at Morrisons, £15 off £60 at Sainsbury's, £5 off £45 at Iceland and new 'urban' fast-delivery firms, such as Gorillas' £15 off £25 or Gopuff's 40% off.

Another tip was visiting the food aisles where supermarkets hide their best bargains.

For example, cotton buds can be 20% cheaper in the baby aisle, and herbs and spices are under half the price in world foods.

A third tip was checking you are keeping the right food in the fridge so you throw less food away, and online or app-based coupons were suggested too.

You can also get free food from Tesco, bakeries, and your neighbours on the Olio app and research the best time to get 'yellow sticker' discounted food.

As well as this, you can try visiting beyond-best-before stores, which feature items heavily discounted.

The tips come after Tesco chairman John Allan claimed customers have been asking the supermarkets check out staff to stop scanning their food shop once their bill reaches a certain cost as they're feeling the squeeze on their finances.
