I always look out for yellow stickered bargains when i do a food shop but i rarely get many and i don't buy anything that i wouldn't' normally use just because its going cheap. I was very happy this week to get these items below
The joint of pork was half price and the mature cheese blocks were reduced to £1.50 along with a bag of grated cheese for £1. Cheese freezes very well so i was glad to get these.
I have been trying to cut down on the amount of meat we buy. I wouldn't find it hard to cut out altogether myself and i eat a lot of veggy meals anyway but OH loves his meat. I have been buying smaller packs of minced meat and padding it out with a handful of lentils instead and this has worked very well as although OH knows about this, it doesn't change the taste of the overall dishes. Son is already virtually a vegetarian indeed he has never eaten much in the way of meat except for sausages and burgers so i buy plenty of quorn or veggy substitutes.
This week it was my Birthday and i decided to go for a day out with a couple of friends to the auctions as i did last year. I have been looking to buy a breadmaker for a while now but they are normally too expensive for me to purchase. Well there was a lovely Panasonic breadmaker in the auction and i checked it out beforehand and it looked in very good condition. I decided to set a limit of £25. I got it for the grand total of....£2.00!! With commission i paid a total of £2.24 but what a bargain.

Wow it was cold yesterday evening. I huddled in my fleecy polo necked top next to the stove last night but still felt cold. The temperature was expected to go down to -8 degrees.
Hello, I am back with a little catch up post after Christmas. We had a lovely time spending it with the Grandkids and with three boys plus one girl it was busy and full of superhero's!
