SALES of tinned food are up for the first time in five years – and that means shoppers are being canny. Tinned and long-life produce is great value, and making the switch from fresh to tinned or cartoned on some ingredients can save you cash. So it is no surprise sales are up 2.7 per cent to £2.3billion in the past year, according to the Grocer magazine. Sun Savers discovers which food you may be better off buying in a can. Cooked meat. A fresh pack of 300g cured ham from Asda costs £3, while a 325g can of Princes cured ham from the same store costs £2.

THIS year’s Love Island stars are on their way to becoming millionaires, just like Gabby Allen, Jonny Mitchell and Kady McDermott. And although scooping the £50,000 prize money would be a nice bonus, it will be small change to some of this year's islanders, who will have made twenty times as much this time next year.
