A SURVEY HAS found that more than 80 per cent of consumers in Ireland will bring their shopping list from one shop to another every week in order to root out bargains and promotions.

The Checkout magazine survey found that three-quarters of Irish consumers had changed their shopping habits in 2011 and half of them believed they would change yet again in 2012, the Irish Examiner reports.

The survey also found that a fifth of people plan to spend less on groceries this coming year, owing largely to the economic downturn.

So today we’re asking, do you shop around for the best prices when doing your weekly shop?
