Hiiiii erasmuser, if you are in this blog it is because you are interested in knowing which is the cheapest supermarket in your Erasmus city. It is very important to know where to buy, and much more if you are going on Erasmus. Every saving, however small, it matters.

For Erasmus students  in Granada, congratulations! You have the cheapest supermarket in all of Spain, the Dani supermarket.

Unlike Madrid, be very careful because the most expensive is the Sánchez Romero supermarket.

Notice how important is to choose a place for your purchase: making the same purchase in the Dani supermarket or in Sánchez Romero, it can make a difference of up to 3,000 euros throughout the year.

Friend, friend, with this you can afford a good holiday in the Caribbean. 🏝️

Barcelona has the second most expensive supermarket in Spain, Sorli Discau.

I leave a list, made by the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU), with the cheapest supermarkets in some important cities, the score starts at 100, being 100 the cheapest supermarket.

Search this listing for your Erasmus city and saveeeee moneyy!!!

* By the way, I don’t know if you’ve already found accommodation, but if you’re interested in saving and not being surprised, I recommend you read this blog post on how to find accommodation in Spain.

Main supermarkets in Spain (quality/price)

Anyway, in general the best supermarkets to make the purchase in Spain at the moment and that I recommend you are: Mercadona and Lidl.

Mercadona

It has many varieties of products, and every week they even have news. If you are looking for specific brands I do not recommend you  Mercadona, since the vast majority of its products are white label.

Lidl

I imagine that many of you will know this supermarket chain. Lidl stands out for the large number of deals they offer, you can find some products much cheaper than anywhere else. Highlights the low prices on fruit and vegetables.

Avoid ⚠️

Supermarkets El Corte Inglés and the online supermarket Ulabox.com These supermarkets are quite expensive and you have others with the same quality at a better price.

Save in your shopping cart in your Spanish Supermarket

I leave you 4 tips to save a few euros on your purchase:

  • Make a shopping list before going to the supermarket –> Something as absurd as making the list before going to the Supermarket can save us a good pinch, since in the end we end up buying more than we need.
  • Take advantage of white labels –> There is no big difference between brands and white labels in their quality (generally), take advantage of it.
  • Beware of offers –> Offers can be expensive, if you do not need it, do not take it just to take advantage of the offer.
  • Important. Try not to go to get groceries with an empty stomach –> When we are hungry … we may be able to empty the supermarket, we tend to be less rational when buying groceries.

Time to close the post

Were you aware of this list about the cheapest supermarkets in Spain made by the OCU? Friend, Erasmus is made to enjoy, and the more we can save on a day-to-day basis, the more we will enjoy our experience. By the way, talking about enjoying the experience and saving money, here I leave you  a post that talks about the best and cheapest ways to travel in Spain. Greetings Erasmuser 🙂
