The shop I am working in is reducing its food stocks to sell other things so today I managed to get a few bargains. 2 boxes cheerios @ £1 each and 3 boxes readybrek 50p each. These will be eaten by the men in the house. I got 5 tins of black cherry filling that I use when I make my cheesecakes for 50p a tin and 2 odd tins chopped tomatoes for 25p each.
Its handy to have a couple of jars of curry sauce in for a quick meal for OH as I cook curry from scratch usually but at 50p a jar I couldn't go wrong. Beans are reduced to 20p so I picked up 5 tins and I will get more but they were too heavy to carry as I was without a car.
I got a few freezer bargains too. The potatoes were 90p and I can eat them on Slimming World. I got 2 bags chicken @ £1 each and the frozen vegetables were 50p each. OH also got 3 packets of Nice biscuits at 25p each and 4 instant whip mixes for £1.
There are a lot of other reduced items in the shop but they are not really things we would normally eat and I don't want to buy too many sweet things to be tempted by just because they are going cheap, so I am focusing on stockpiling foods that I know I will use and will help with leaner times over the winter period. I do wish I had a bigger freezer though as i could have brought lots more vegetables.
Just to show I am still doing ok.
