Well, I did my shopping in Al*i this morning, went armed with my list but anticipated buying a few extras, as I was sure I'd find things that we normally buy anyway that were cheaper in there. And there were....I stocked up on shower gel, liquid soap and anti perspirant, all much cheaper than the ones we usually buy in the bigger supermarkets. I also bought a few packs of bread mixes, they were reduced to 39p and dated mid April, so plenty of time to get baking. Dental chews for the dog were half the price of the ones we've been buying in the normal supermarket or pet store, so got half a dozen packs of those too.
Even with the extras, the bill only came to a few pence over £30, very pleased. I doubt we'll shop there every week as it is a bit limited, but will certainly go there every few weeks.
Welcome to a new reader, Sammie of Sammieskint.blogspot.co.uk. She's got a good eye for a bargain and is kind enough to tell everyone about it. Yesterday I called into B&M to look for the washing liquid she mentioned (we don't have a T**co in our town, amazingly, which is where she bought hers, although she did say she'd heard they could be found in B&M also). I found them, they're called Enrituals, come in a couple of fragrances and only cost 99p for a litre bottle. I bought 4. Thank you Sammie!
