A BARGAIN hunter took a trip to M&S and Sainsbury's to compare the price of everyday essentials in the two supermarkets.
So if you need to stock up on bread, eggs, milk, pasta and rice, you’ll want to listen up before you head to the high-street.
Posting on TikTok under the username @everylittlepenny, savvy shopper Kathryn was left stunned at the price difference between her local M&S and her local Sainsbury’s.
She shared a clip showing off the budget items, with the caption ‘M&S vs SAINSBURY'S price comparison! Are you surprised at the difference?’
As Kathryn’s clip shows, a medium wholemeal loaf was 70p in M&S and 80p in Sainsbury’s.
Not only this, but two pints of milk will cost you £1.15 in M&S but 20p extra in Sainsbury’s, where it is priced at £1.35.

As well as this, a 1kg bag of rice in M&S is £1.85, but will cost you £2.50 from Sainsbury’s.
Each item that Kathryn spotted was cheaper in M&S, leaving her and many others open-mouthed.
