Let’s be honest – no one wants to spend a fortune on food and basic necessities.
Some people prioritize quality over price while others are always looking for the cheapest items on offer.
But what if you could get both?
A discount store on Derby Road promises to offer the lowest possible prices for items that can be found in any other supermarket.
Nottinghamshire Live went shopping at Affordable to see what a potential customer could get for just £ 10.
Judging by the flashy “unbelievable bargains” stickers on the store window, this was going to be a promising shopping experience.
We went inside to find a range of fresh fruits and vegetables, cans, treats, snacks, tea and coffee.
It was difficult to choose the best deals on offer because everything was so cheap.
I first browsed the shelves filled with various food items, choosing a packet of Kellogg Corn Flakes for just 70p.
On a simple google search, the same item sells for £ 2 in most supermarkets.
Not only can you find incredible prices for food items, the store also has an impressive selection of clothing, books, CDs, and vinyls.
That being said, I couldn’t resist and bought myself an art book of Banksy’s over time artwork for just £ 2.
Getting back to basics, I chose a box of baked beans with four small potatoes for an eventual delicious lunch.
And what else could it be paired with except a potted noodle for the whopping price tag of just 70p.
Other honorable mentions in regards to the valuable discoveries were the original Heinz barbecue sauce, a delicious jar of honey nut flakes, and a packet of gluten-free crisps.
At this point, I was really struggling to find any other items that would get me to the magical final sum of £ 10.
Slightly worried, my eagle eye spotted a bottle of rose lemonade for the incredible price of just £ 1.50 and a jar of green tea bags.
When I got to the cash desk, I finished my shopping trip with three packages of crispy breads.
Since this was such a satisfying customer experience, I wonder if I will ever go back to a normal supermarket.
