    i quite often find organic stuff with a yellow sticker but I find it does not keep that well so needs eating up quickly! Recent research has shown that there is not much advantage to buying organic just eat a wide variety of coloured fruit and veg to benefit.

    saw some organic chicken reduced on Sunday but not by a massive amount so didnt buy it.
  • I've been buying more and more yellow sticker stuff this past few weeks. Instead of planning my meals before I go to the supermarket I've been buying whatever is a bargain and working around that.

    We had an indian the other day that cost £2 all in for 4 all done with yellow sticker curries and chappatis that I had in the freezer (got some lovely curries from Asda for 30p each!).
    This week we had a large chicken for £2 (meal for 4 plus butties)
    Spicy pork steaks for £2 (6, meal for 4 and 2 for butties)

    I think I'm at the stage where I begrudge paying full price for anything, especailly meat which is so expensive.
    I tend to find Asda are best for reductions, I've not got much joy in Morrisons at all.
    Freezer almost empty now so need to go on another yellow sticker raid.
