    labels were on the shelves. One of the assistants told me the Bonne Maman was just one of the spreads which will be going - no idea what others will be. None of their jams were marked down. I think I've seen some of the marmalade varieties, in other years, reduced but not today. I wouldn't be surprised if they're making space for mincemeat & Christmassy spreads.

    I went in last night and all the coffee had gone, the labels from the shelf, and there's no space for it as other coffees have filled that in.

    The jars of spread now all have yellow stickers on, as well as marked SEL. I'll be making lots of banoffie tartlets soon so it's a great find for me.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    The whisks in the clearance were 75p and the Glade plug-ins were £3.45 so perhaps those are up to manager's discretion.

    Not in the clearance, but the Price's' candles are all Buy One Get One Free - includes reed diffusers - they also have a seasonal Mulled Wine fragrance

    In the Home Dept -

    a stainless steel flavour injector, £1.69 - can't tell how much it was beforehand because the printing on the labels were all wonky - looked like £8 though.

    Basically, it's a syringe with 2 different sized re-useable heads to inject marinades into meat and poultry.

    4L capacity cast iron casserole dish , half price at £20. I only saw cream but there may be other colours. A similar 5L one in M&S is £55 & a smaller, 3L one in Sainsbury is £35.

    The cast iron skillet is also half price at £12.


    Lots of baking sheets, roasting pans and cake tins half price. There are 2 ranges

    1) the heavy-duty, non-stick that is, supposedly, used in the Waitrose kitchens.
    e.g. -large roasting tin, £8.

    That was the only price I saw but it's quite a large range of cook and bakeware which include loose bottom flan tins, round and rectangular; various sized cake tins; roasting pans; baking sheets; brownie tins etc.


    2) the other is hard anodised aluminium e.g.-

    large roasting pan with trivet, £20
    large baking tray, £9
    small baking tray, £6

    Both ranges come with a 20 year guarantee.

    450g box of Scottish shortbread varieties (8 varieties, 29 biscuits mostly plain but some choc chip or choc coated) are £2 but if you have these as a PYO, you get an extra 20% off so £1.60 a box!

    NB Online the boxes shown are the usual ones and are listed as all-butter shortbread but instore they're decorated with their Christmas theme and classed as Scottish shortbread
    BBD on mine is 30th July 2018

    Think offer is until 22nd November

    they had a load of bags of teas from the Rare Tea company in my local yesterday so it looks to be a national clearance line. 99p a bag they were. Would have bought some but I'm not really into loose tea.

    Even I have to admit that Le Creuset prices over the past year or so have become utterly ludicrous.

    Waitrose bargains
    Waitrose are selling off Christmas stuff at 75% off - cards, wrapping, tags plus various Christmas food items such as biscuits, pigs in blankets and chocs.

    They also seem to be introducing another half price event.

    All good, although I am not sure how much more Christmas food I can take....

    the 450g boxes of Scottish shortbread with the Christmas packaging are now down to 79p - and if they're one of your PYO picks, you still get the 20% off.
