10 alternatives to the supermarkets

Supermarkets are often hell, nobody enjoys them, crowds of people (unless you shop at 11pm like us) and it often takes a chunk of time out of your day. These altneratives are worth considering:

Approved Food

They generally sell food past or about to go past it’s best before date, the food is still perfectly edible and the savings are passed on to consumers.

Amazon Fresh

Your weekly shop at Amazon prices, with same day and 1 hour slots available.


From packs of chicken breasts to massive hampers of meat and everything else in between, MuscleFood are basically an online butcher but they also do other essentials like eggs, biscuits, prepared meals and supplements.

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
