    I mainly use Tesco metro, it's the one that's a reasonable walking distance when carrying a lot of shopping back home. If I have a car I go to a big Sainsburys as there's more deals and I much prefer it to Tesco. There's a co-op round the corner that I use in emergensies, and I sometimes go in to check if they've got any good deals on. I also use a veggie shop round the corner as they've always got good deals on fruit and vegetables.

    I'll be using tesco (online though, not going to bother walking 20/25 mins, get there, realise I bought too much, call a taxi, wait half an hour, pay upt a tenner for the taxi), I usually shop for our home online - delivery is usually between £3.50-£5.50, they deliver next day (or same day if you wake up early enough!), you can often get money off vouchers that only work online, I get staff discount anyway, I can spend half an hour doing the shopping rather than 2/3 hours. Someone else goes around the store buying stuff for no extra cost. Usually though, I'd bulk buy with heavy stuff (pasta, rice, juice, cans, etc) and just keep buying milk/bread/fruit, etc until food stores start to go down, then just order more.

    Got to note that this would be more effective for families/student houses where you share the shopping; a lot of the stuff would be expired by the end of the week!

    Sainsburys as it's just round the corner. When reeeally skint though, I'd go to Aldi in the city centre.

    Does anyone have their shopping delivered?
    Yep I do from Tesco... for £3 delivery.

    It's far easier than having to find time to do it yourself and as other people have noted it would cost me more on bus fare/car running costs if I had to do it myself. Online shopping also allows you to stick to a budget far easier as you can see how much you're spending as you go along rather than it coming as a shock when you get to the till in a shop!

    I've used Tesco for quite a while now, I always buy Tesco value or tesco own branded stuff unless it's stuff that I know I don't like cheap versions of.

    I use Asda, since it's just down the road from me. But, if I had a choice (ie if I had a car), I'd shop at Tesco.

    Sainsbury's as I like their food, can't stand Tesco so I avoid it like the plague.

    Asda.

    Although there is a Co-op at the end of my road so I buy quite a bit from there as well.

    Not at uni yet, but I can say it'll be Waitrose as I work there and will hopefully get a transfer so I can still have my discount

    Lidl for basics (bread, milk, eggs, juice, soft drinks, frozen meals, pasta), and Tesco Express/Sainsbury's Central/Tesco Extra (depending on how far I can be arsed to walk) for decent stuff like meat, cheese, veg and alcohol.

    Tesco down the street however I'm living in a house next year, which is bit of a distance away from it, so I doubt I'll be going to it as often.

    I shop at Sainsburys because it's the biggest one within walking distance. There is a tesco express which is tiny and a smallish sainsburys which i have to go to, and also a massive sainsburys but you can't really walk there easily
