    Waitrose have replaced their red and white reduced price stickers with yellow reduced price stickers, thus aligning them with many other supermarkets.

    Highlight of a very successful trawl around Croydon stores = (2) Sains smoked Haddock chowders (in those little terracota pots that are good for peanuts etc.) for 39p!
    Also a 3 item M&S shop that totalled 45p!
    A good day.:D

    Entire box of Satsumas for 30p, 2 packs of fresh mango fingers for a quid.

    I'd have got the 2 boxes of cakes for under a quid but I was well behaved.


    Hoorah for bank holidays :D

    Croydon M&S was 'awash' with big tubs of something called "Christmas custard" at 20p a throw!
    Just after we got some Mrs B picked up some heavily discounted fine stem, pink rhubarb. Yummy seconds tonight.:D

    Newsagents near my work had spaghetti with a sell by date of end of this month at 20p a pop. Bought all of it for two quid.

    These did, yeah. Not entirely sure why either as it keeps for years (I think :hmm:) so I had the lot.

    :confused: It's dried. Pretty sure I've got some in the cupboard that's a couple of years old that I wouldn't think twice about using.

    This afternoon I got around 50 quids worth of fish at Morrisons for less than a fiver. All good stuff too. Sea bass, smoked haddock, trout and cod.

    Just recently (last couple of months) I've started to take notice of the fresh flowers at Morrisons. I've never been a buyer of flowers, but at 10p for a bunch that was a fiver, or 50p for a bunch that was £20, I've filled both my mothers and my girlfriends houses with them.

    Fish/shellfish at Sains on the Purley way...an absolute steal!

    The trick with fish is either eat it when you get home or put it straight in the freezer. Forget about putting it in the fridge for tomorrow.

    You'd have to be very lucky to have your eye on tomorrows goodies and to just hit the shop at the perfect time. Half an hour too early and they're 10% off. Half an hour later they're 80% off and gone as soon as the sticker gets put on.
