A couple of quick trips out to a couple of supermarkets has yielded a few bargains this week to top up the food stores.
- Three packs of trifle sponges 3 x
89p39p - Martin has been making trifle noises lately. The closer we get to christmas, the louder the noises get.
- Jar of decaff coffee
£1.7588p - because the label was loose!
- 480 teabags
£5.50£3.85 - because the corner of the box was crushed!
- Three chocolate and orange large loaf cakes 3 x
£2.9999p - I very rarely buy basic cakes, but ones like this I tend to snap up as I can't make it cheaper by the time I buy the chocolate and oranges.
- Four packs of 300g venison pieces 4 x
£4.00£2.86 - however, the supermarket had an offer of 3 for £10 on its meat products, so when the meat went through the till it went through with an additional £2.00 discount.
In addition, I found that our usual packs of fajita mixes, curry and chinese sauces were on offer for more than a 50% discount, so I've stocked up to see us through the next few months.
I'm off now to put on our early evening meal - venison stew - and brave the stinking rain to do some cleaning up in the garden.
