    I'm finding YS shopping harder and harder each time I go shopping. Hardly ever anything left and the reductions seem to be 50% at best.

    50% is still not to be sniffed at, though, cutting your food bill by 50% is pretty impressive, look at it that way.

    Oh yes, it's definitely better than paying full price! It's just a bit of a sore point when only a few months ago 90% reductions were easy to come by.

    As it turns out, I had a really good reduced shop yesterday and one of those days where for £5 I did have bags and bags full! I suppose it depends on the day, and the timing, but it is certainly getting more difficult.

    I also use the green stay fresh bags from Lakeland so any yellow sticker veg lasts much longer than it would if it wasn't in the bags, never have to chuck it away. Anyway, some things get cleared before they are even ripe! I have four rock solid avocados in here that I got a couple of days ago.

    Many Thanks for that. I have ordered some.:)

    8:30pm Mondays is bread night rarely get breads for more than 10p, Thursdays 7:30pm is meat night about 1/6th of the original price is about as good as it's going to get, I only go to one shop however living on your own helps. Good bargains I've had in the past from the top of my head included Gressingham's duck legs £7 down to £1.20-odd, breads going for 2p, and last week fish from £1.20-odd to about 10p.

    Like others I generally avoid getting bread for >10p (unless desperate), meats must be reduced more than 50%

    Just returned from Morrisons having done my normal weekly shop, I usually go on a Saturday afternoon where you don't get much in the way of reductions but this evening I managed to get lots of bread rolls, packs of 4 multi grain for 15p, large whole multi grain loaf for 25p. There were lots of other things reduced but I resisted as I am trying to use up what's in my freezer.

    My daddy is really good at getting bargains! I went through his fridge yesterday (for research purposes) and he'd got a pack of 2 large pork chops for 60p, some prawns for 10p, and some fish pieces (can't remember what kind of fish) for about 30p.

    I went to Morrisons today and got some mushrooms for 60p - but they're not normal, boring mushrooms, they're some weird variety I haven't identified yet. They also had some brown crackly topped mushrooms for the same price, but I left those.

    Went to Morrisons yesterday just in time for 2nd yellow sticker reductions: Got loads of stuff, they were struggling to reduce it by 5pm ... not many people about, therefore I got:

    4 sizzle steaks = 99p
    2 large joints of topside beef = £2.65 each
    large gammon joint = £1.99
    large bag potatoes = 89p
    2 large pieces fish in batter = 99p
    caul cheese in large box = 65p
    chicken with stuffing in box = £1.59
    gammon with honey glaze in same type of box as chick = £1.59
    large Lurpack spread = £1.59
    2 packs prawns @ 65p each (the ones that you have to peel yourself)

    ... plus loads more

    ... Morrisons must be struggling !!
