Not using a trolley at the supermarket could save you hundreds of pounds – here's how | The Sun

NOT using a trolley at the supermarket could save shoppers hundreds of pounds on their shopping bills.

The advice features in a series of helpful tips to keep shopping prices down as shoppers face rising food prices.

Another tool to keep costs down is swapping pricier items for cheaper supermarket brands, the Mirror reported.

In a technique known as the 'downshift' challenge, it's recommended you go for something a little more budget friendly.
