Non-Food Essentials Comparison: Tesco £38.57, ASDA £30.66, Sainsbury's £36.51, Morrisons £39.24

The basket consists of all branded goods, so they are directly comparable across supermarkets, furthermore the entire basket was the same as last week so next to the top line results I have included a plus or minus bracket to show the change on the previous week. 

ASDA £30.66 (no change) 
Sainsbury's £36.98 (-£0.47) 
Tesco £38.57 (+£2.65) 
Morrisons £36.96 (+£2.28)

Once again we see Asda as the stand out leader this week, being the cheapest on all items in the basket. Tesco and Morrisons gained the most in price week on week, this pushed Morrisons into fourth place and Tesco into third. Sainsburys was the only one that reduced price week on week, and for the first time have reached second place, maybe this has something to do with the recently announced price cuts
