    Asda beansprouts at 25p a bag so I got two. That's a 50% reduction on what I think are the best value around anyway. Currently open-freezing ready for bagging up.

    I only went in for a bottle of hot chilli sauce as Asda's my favourite.

    That's about the sum total of what I buy in Asda these days!:rotfl:

    Did fantastic today in Mr Ts, got £100 worth of stuff, reduced down to £26

    Best buy was finest gammon joints, down from £9 to 88p
  • I already had plenty in the fridge and decided to avoid the Christmas Eve top up, but did not do so badly when I needed to get some milk a few days later. Lots of fresh egg noodles and Chinese sauces for only 11p each. Most went into the freezer.
    It's really easy to default to cynicism these days, since you are almost always certain to be right.

    :eek: You almost wrote that as an afterthought. I'd have been doing high kicks in the air if I'd swiped a bargain like that, arthritis and all! :p

    Both my freezers are stocked with ys items.. today I have picked up 4 salmon fillets, a pack of fishcakes, a large pack of southern fried chicken, 3 duck legs, a large chicken pie, a garlic & herb share bread, some party nibbles and a rather large rolled sirloin joint which was priced at £19.95 orignally and I got it for £4.95... so less than £20 for £44 of shopping.. I usually aim for 50% or less but rarely get the really good bargains as I don't shop very late in the day..

    This was between 3 supermarkets. over the lunchtime period.
