    Totally agree.

    I always check what's available but often walk away. Often it's junk food so far better for my waistline if I leave it. Also Sainsburys reductions are from such a silly price to start with that it's still too expensive to be worth buying.

    Forgot to mention this. Last week in Sainsburys, they had packs of Italian antipasti meats in Christmas labels down to 15p as they were reduced to clear to £1 and they had that day's date on them. Think they are £3.50 normally.

    Recently had a new aldi open and seems to have attracted lidl shoppers with their shiny new store, our lidl doesn't seem to have their stock adjusted correctly yet, so there seems much more than usual kicking around.

    And with those new green 'waste not' stickers there's its been rich pickings over the usual 30% off.

    Filled the freezer with 90p packs of pork loin steaks, shoulder streaks, kilo chicken breasts, steak mince, diced beef etc

    Not the huge discounts but it'll do me for a couple of months for next to nothing per meal

    You did well there with what you got you can make many meals. As you mentioned pork loin chops I was in Asda today and saw in the 3 for £10 offer pork loin chops but you used to get 8 chops in the pack but now it’s only 4.

    I almost bought an orange-stickered free-range chicken at Lidl (Bournemouth town centre) yesterday morning, but when I got to the till, the member of staff took a good look at it, said it wasn't "on our system" and therefore she couldn't sell it to me.

    It was one of three orange-stickered free-range chickens, so I am presuming the other 2 weren't on their "system" either. It's original price was just over £6.

    Has anyone else heard this reason for not selling a product at Lidl? (And is it Lidl-speak for "the staff want this"?!)

    Not YS but I tried to buy mouthwash in L's yesterday, "not on system" so maybe there are really computer problems?
    The cashier even typed bar code number in & it just did not show up. I've bought identical product before without problems

    Previously I've bought YS FR chicken, went through OK, read bar code & press 30% discount button, which is what I assume your cashier was attempting

    I learned something new this week - Asda does not slice its YS bakery bread. I don't mind (for 20p I think I can manage to slice it myself) but I just thought it was weird.
