It is always a good idea to try to get the best value for money that you can. This does not always mean spending the least amount of money, as the quality may suffer as a result. However, it can be good to try cheaper things to see. Martyn Lewis explained this recently in one of his articles and suggested that people try cheaper supermarket brands because on certain items they were no different to the more expensive ones. It could save significant amounts of money and you may even find you enjoy the food more.
