I made an app for iPhone, and it may be helpful, or not, I don’t know. The app allows you to compare the prices of supermarkets in the UK.
As it searches directly in their websites, you can save a list and update the prices in a different day.

Here is the link:

It’s free.

Wages for most people is less than this, most people are on minimum wage or slightly more, that's 1'200 a month minus taxes and NI so many people are taking 8-900 per month, so with the high cost of living eats most of that up. Motor insurance, council tax and utilities are all high. Most people in Yorkshire are living paycheck to paycheck. Don't believe the rubbish the British government claim. Also there is not enough jobs for all the people, so people are fighting for even a minimum wage job. It sucks here, that's why i emigrated.

Some of the prices on this page are absurdly high. Most locals get sandwiches from takeaway shops (for about £3-£4) and eat outside. The most popular restaurants in Leeds are chains, which charge about £5-£6 for a meal (see Wetherspoons website, for example). I can't comment on mid-range restaurants because I don't eat there. Also, most supermarkets sell 800g bread loaves for 55p (see Asda, Sainsburys, and Tesco websites).
