    Just popped in for a look......and found people like me...I get loads of yellow ticket food and often lurk like some stalker at the woman with the ticket machine,I also clock in my local garage the sell by dates on the salmon and go in that day to get it half price. I am doing a different challenge at the moment but will deffo be reading the posts for new ideas.
    Yep...still at it, working out how to retire early.:D....... Going to have to rethink that scenario as have been screwed over by the company. A work in progress.
  • not seen much in terms of YS lately. Must stop shopping at Aldi and Lidl I guess..lol.

    Got 3 meat feast deep fill pizzas for 63p each in A$da along with two packs of BirdsEye Haddock fillets bake to perfection which were half price at £1.50. I rarely shop there but pleased with my buys, would most probably have been bigger reductions later on in the day as they are closed tomorrow.
  • Not been on for a while (life problems) but have been lurking when possible and am really impressed with all your ys purchases. Not always able to get out at the 'right' times but managed to find a few things this week. Fish, yogs and veggies. Managed to save quite a bit off my 'normal' shopping so quite pleased but no where near as good as what you guys sometimes get :( but still pleased with what I manage to get:)
  • Has the most amazing YS hunt yesterday in our local Mr T, got there just after 4pm and they had just started. Some of the tihings i got were....

    finest rump/rib eye steak from £6+ to 82-95p
    steak mince 40p
    chicken breasts 80p
    diced steak 60p
    lamb steaks 80p
    pizza express pizzas 80p but had £1 coupon so got paid to take it away
    10 x pack of ham 40p each
    24 meatballs 80p
    ready meals (mac cheese, canneloni etc) 9p-20p
    bread 10p
    bagels 22p
    and loads more i can't remeber, but i came away with 4 bags stuffed full and my mum the same....plus we shared with a good 5 or 6 other people there was just so much. Didn't bother with fruit and veg as i grabbed a load on YS a few days ago (5kg pots 20p, broc 15p, apples 22p) and still have plenty i the fridge.

    Most of the dates on these are actually the 10th so has 2 days on them from when i bought them-not sure why but i wasn't complaining. So happy to have replenished the freezer-was getting a little nervous as my stock were depleting quicker than i could fill them up.xx

  • someone is going to get a bargain in Asda in Pershore tonight - loads of YS stuff but not down to last reduction when I was there with DS and we couldn't wait until they were. Gutted.
