Well. Beggar's Banquet would've been better anyway.
After 6pm is when my local Tesco has the most reduced items out especially the bakery products with items as low as 9p.
The phrase has somehow become a legend in our office.
Asda was pretty good tonight with the Xmas cheese, wine and chutney boxes down to a fiver
I got 2 quality mince pies from the co-op for 15p.
Waitrose were doing packs of 12 mini beef wellington things the other day for 19p each, apparently the normal price was £7.00 which was clearly fucking bollocks, but i still bought every single box they had out of principle, which was about 23 packs i think i counted.
Ive eaten a couple of boxes of them and they arent even that nice, but im not bothered, not at that price
Lots and lots of mince pies
3 boxes of mushrooms from Tesco yesterday for 24p a pop. Will be making a mushroom stroganoff with those and a tub of quark I got slightly reduced from Sainsburys.
I've just moved house and am now 5 minutes from a booths. First buffet of the new house included 6 salmon steaks for a quid, some pickled herrings for 60p, a large pork pie with cranberries for 90p, the usual salad leaves for pence. And a big bag of king Edwards for 50p
That was reduced in the M & S here too - probably one of those lines that sounded a good idea at the time...
Bought an xmas pud for half price today.
My freezer currently has some heavily-discounted Tesco whole Camembert, whole Brie, Blue Stilton (half-wheel) and Wensleydale (wedges) in it, 50-75p each.
How a shopper bought £40 worth of food at Asda for just £1.55
The Bristol Post has got the latest scoop on how to maximise your savings in the 'scabbly isle'
Without clicking the link, as that website is impossible to use due to the amount of adverts it tries to load up as you try in vain to read an article, i bet that 'shopper' is a woman aged about 55. They seem to be the ruthless experts when it comes to nabbing everything out of the tramps buffet, to the point where i am bitter, resentful and a bit scared when i see them lurking near the buffet, big fucking trolley blocking the way, and chucking everything they possibly can into it!
Yesterday I got four packs of (Christmassy-packaged) smoked salmon, originally priced at £5.99, reduced to £1.89 each. Ate one and put the others in the freezer. There were about 10 more packs that I left there.
Just got a great bargain at The Waitrose “Whoops!” Aisle - 2kg of Organic Seville Oranges for £0.22! Marmalade will be made tomorrow
A 2p loaf of bread and a celeriac for 8p from Asda tonight
Easter bargain! Two twirls and one dubious egg 15p! Can more people stick their fingers into Easter eggs please
Waitrose have taken a tough stance this Easter. All seasonal goods already removed from shelves. No chance of a reduced price panettone.
large coarse polish sausage for a pound, pork. Like Cumberland large but with more girth. I suppose I should slice it up and cook with it but I am just eating it cold with pepper and mustard.
I got a couple of half price damaged eggs (well the boxes were ripped and taped up), that turned out to be perfect with all chocolate bars intact, on Good Friday, but I went to Tesco last night and all they had left were three Thorntons eggs that were all still a fiver. Still, the other tramps buffet was ok and they'd obviously had a generous manager on that day as it was 50% off - filled the freezer.
Aldi apparently introduced 50% off for things going off or hitting use by date that day late last year. My local store only seems to have started doing this now. Although most of it seems to be stuff that's already past the date!
Aldi fights waste with 50% cuts as shelf life end nears
I work at Tesco now and when we reduce the fruit and veg in the evening there is a hardcore group of regulars who wait for the dolly to be brought out at 7.15 pm. The guy who does the reductions has to practically drop it and run! Apparently he’s been punched before.
Haha! thats pretty funny that he has been punched before.
not for him
Tramp's buffet tonight was solid, and the supermarket empty. Going to plan my visits for England match evenings more often I reckon. I hope they go all the way, cup final night will be a goldmine...
What was in your haul?
A big stack of those higgedy pies for pence, some vegan sausages, all the sourdough loaves you could shake a stick at, some shrimp & smoked salmon terrine, allsorts. I am replete.
Sounds brilliant, especially the pies. I find it hard to get a decent pie without alcohol in these days.
Won't the alcohol evaopurate when cooked?
