Here’s which supermarkets to head to for your bargains.
Frozen pizzas are a quick and easy dinner to whip up for the family.
All of them sell cheese and tomato pizzas at this price, but if you’re a meat eater, head to Asda and Aldi for pepperoni pizzas which cost the same.
The Sun’s Lynsey Hope was a fan of Lidl’s pizza when she put frozen pizzas to the test.
She said she could barely tell the difference between Lidl’s pizza and the Goodfellas equivalent – which is £1.49 more expensive.
Shoppers have been stunned by rising fish finger prices.
Price of fish is going up partly because around 40% of our white fish comes from Russia – and it is now subject to a 35% tariff increase as a response to the war in Ukraine.
Head to Asda, where you can get a pack of 10 for 69p under its Just Essentials range.
Morrisons is selling boxes of 10 for 79p, and you’ll be paying 80p at Sainsbury’s and Tesco.
Recreate a Friday night supper from the chippy for less by buying some oven chips from the supermarket.
You can buy a bag of French Fries from Aldi for 89p – which was the cheapest bag we could find.
Tesco and Sainsbury’s sell packets of chips for 99p – the next cheapest we could find.
Splash out 1p more though and head to Waitrose for bags that cost £1 – Lynsey gave them top marks in her oven chips taste test.
WINNER: Aldi or Waitrose
Chicken nuggets are a family favourite – but which shop sells them for less?
Asda is selling 320g bags of 20 nuggets for 85p – the cheapest we could find.
Next best value for money was Aldi’s 450g packs of Rooster nuggets which works out at £1.39.
But Sun reporter Alice Grahns ranked Marks & Spencer’s nuggets the best – but they come out much pricier at £3.50.
She said they were “tender” and “nice and crispy”.
WINNER: Asda or M&S
A Sunday roast isn’t complete without Yorkshire puddings.
If you’re planning on whipping up a feast this weekend but you’re on a budget, head to Sainsbury’s where you’ll get 15 for 48p.
While Asda and Tesco are selling them for 50p.
But Sun reporter Jess Clark thought Morrisons’ packs for 85p were the best when she put supermarket own-brand puds to the test.
She thought they were “delicious”.
WINNER: Sainsbury’s or Morrisons
While the weather is still warm, you’ll want some ice cream in the freezer.
Aldi is selling four chocolate and hazelnut cones for 95p – working out 22p per cone.
But when The Sun’s Laura Stott put cones from supermarkets to the test, she loved Lidl’s strawberry and vanilla Bon Gelati cones.
She said they were gooey and had “plenty of sauce”.
You get six in a pack for £1.45 – working out at 24p a cone.
WINNER: Aldi and Lidl
There’s still time to fire up the BBQ this summer.
No feast is complete without burgers, but who sells packs for less?
Aldi is selling packs of six for £1.79 – but you can get 10 in a pack from Asda for £1.60.
Tesco is selling packs for the same price, which but you only get four.
Get yourself some bangers to put on the grill too.

Tesco is also selling packs with the same quantity of sausages in for £1.25.

Whacking a pack of mixed veg in the freezer is a good way of making sure you’re getting your five a day.
Asda sells 1kg packs for 72p.
Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Tesco sells the same quantity for 79p.
There’s not much in mixed veg, so we would recommend going to Asda to save money.
Ice cream tubs
You’ll want to have a tub of vanilla ice cream in the freezer for a late night snack or for a quick post-BBQ dessert.
Head to Asda and Tesco for 2litre tubs that will set you back just £1.02.
