Great bargains

Just got a couple of really good bargains in the orange supermarket.  Boxes of their deep filled mince pies reduced to 10p - they had stacks of them, we were very restrained and just bought 2.  I don't eat them as they're far too sweet for me (I'm diabetic), but OH likes them and it saves me making a cake for him this week!

And they had 1.2 kg shrink wrapped gammon joints reduced to 70p - yes, 70 pence!  Dated to 14 Jan, they're a discontinued line, apparently.  There were just 3 left on the shelf, a chap in front of us picked up 2 of them, so we were left with the last one  (should have elbowed him out of the way ;-) hehe).  We've already got a large piece of gammon in the freezer, but for 70p we weren't going to leave that behind.

  2. Sales start here on Wednesday, they are tightly controlled and only run twice a year! I sometimes find bargains in the supermarket but it is rare. One of the things I miss about Blighty! Makes you feel good to find bargains!

  9. I've frozen down a few boxes of mince pies. Mince pie and custard make a nice easy pudding. Especially for hubby when he's working late.
