It feels like prices have gone up on everything, doesn't it? I know I'm not the only person who's thought about shifting to own-brand products.


How much can I save by switching to own-brand Asda groceries?

To answer this, I gathered a basket of 12 every day groceries and compared them below - here's the list:

  • Coffee
  • Pasta 500g
  • Multipack Of Crisps
  • Rice 500g
  • Baked Beans
  • White Sliced Bread Loaf
  • Detergent
  • Tea Bags
  • Cereal
  • 6 Eggs
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Toilet Roll

From a price perspective, it looks like own-brand Asda groceries vs buying branded groceries at Asda is a clear winner coming out £10.49 cheaper (that's over 35% saved).

If you're able to make the switch and save something on a weekly basis, that'll put £545.48 back into your pocket every year.

According to NimbleFins, the average annual food cost for a typical UK household was around £5,028 in 2020. By saving £545.48 a year on your shop, that essentially works out to just over a month of free groceries in comparison.
