Student Money Week Shopping Basket Challenge 2018

As part of our National Student Money Week we invited students to take part in our Shopping Basket Challenge

Here is a list of prices comparing the same shopping: one shopping was all branded goods and the other was non-branded. You may be surprised at the saving you can make just by not always going for branded goods.
