    Saving money in seafood 13th Mar 18 at 5:04 PM
    Hey guys, the other day I was looking for a very specific type of octopus and, as I could not find it in the local supermarkets/markets, I contacted a couple of local frozen seafood suppliers. Turns out, they offered me a couple of octopus trays for a very cheap price and super fresh! They told me sometimes they bring more octopus and some trays are left, and they give it to you at a sale price. Just a tip for next time you want to buy some cheap seafod!

    How much did you get the octopus for ?
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Still slightly baffled at the idea of leaving money inside a crab or similar. Surely the smell would make it difficult to carry around with you? (Though good ploy if you ever need to clear the area or ensure you are never sat next to on public transport...)

    Very good one. Generally the suppliers charge less than the main supermarkets. That said, there are occasions you might have to buy more if you buy directly from the suppliers.
