    I am off for a bit of fresh air having been in the house since Friday. I am going to pop into Waitrose for a few bits (busy day tomorrow, hopefully with the water board!) so I will report back later.

    Panda, is it the Waitrose in Cheadle you go to? I got some Duchy Originals White Chocolate Byzants there last time I went that had been reduced from 5.99 to 1.79 and they don't go out of date until August. I didn't really get why. I first thought they were maybe discontinuing them, but they had loads at full prize ones on the shelf as well. The packaging was fine as well!???

    Somebody mentioned Lidl for being great, obviously there is Aldi as well. They do great cheeses and sliced meats and every week they have six different fruit and veg on offer, which they call Aldi Super6. This week for example it's kiwi fruits, oranges, mangoes, potatoes, broccoli and mushrooms all for 0.49. They also do really reasonable and good fresh fruit juice (not from concentrate) and sometimes have great specials, such as whole French or Italian salamis, baking ingredients etc. They also have a fairly new wholefood line with great dried fruit and nuts, that are quite a bit cheaper than other places. Just like Lidl it's well worth a visit. Oh and before I forget, their feta is the best feta I have been able to get hold off outside off Greece and my Greek friend agrees. Their parmesan is great too.

    I'm off to either Morrison's or Asda tomorrow, will keep my eyes peeled. icon_biggrin.gif

    Did you know that you can 'sign up' with Lidls on line to be sent an email each week detailing what the next week's Monday and Thursday offers are going to be. ?I've found it quite helpful.

    No-one has mentioned Cost Cutters. This may be specific to Norfolk, I don't know. I do know they have some very good deals.
    A large packet of Wiltshire, partly sliced crumbed ham for 2.19 pence. So many ways to use it for tasty meals. icon_smile.gif
    Many other good offers here too.

    I've never seen a cost cutter up here in Manchester, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything, because there are large parts of the city I don't know.

    Morrisons have a couple of good offers on at the moment, I'm not sure how long for though.

    Twinnings Herbal and Fruit Tea (selected flavours) 0.46
    Carapelli Extra Virign Olive oil at 1/2 price, about 1.80 a bottle
    Buritoni pasta (selected shapes) for 1/2price as well.
    Radox Shower Gel 0.79

    There were quite a few other 1/2price offers but I can't remember them all.

    Hi all icon_biggrin.gif
    I'm new to this forum and hope you don't mind me joining in. I agree with Wicken, you can sign up online to Lydl, Aldi and Netto (not great I know but ok for the basics) and they let you know the weekly deals. I find Lydl and Aldis very good although I do pick and choose what I buy from which store (ie the organic veg from Lydls is great value but the refridgerated orange juice and creme fraiche from Aldis is great).
    We get our meat (amongst other things in bulk) from Costcos and find it great quality, (as long as you have the room to freeze it) and Wing Yip (Chinese wholesalers) is a good place for frozen seafood and large bottles of soy etc (1 litre is less than a small bottle in the supermarkets).
    I never buy spices or herbs from the supermarket, as if you visit your local Asian shop you can get nearly all you need (and more) in large packets with good dates at about 1/3 to 1/2 the price, all I do is decant them into airtight containers.
    In the end I just follow my mums idea (shes 76) shop around for the best quality at the best price,

    These bread mixes are really good value. .75 pence in most supermarkets.
    You don't need to buy yeast or bread flour. They come in some delicious flavours and you can make either rolls or a small loaf.
    I havn't got a bread maker so made them by hand and was very satisfied with the result.
    I also made one of their ginger cake mixes and took it to an elderly lady I know. She loved it.
    Unfortunately I cannot find the cake mixes in any of our supermarkets and I wouldn't want to buy as much as you have to buy to purchase them directly from Wrights. The mic I made was one I purchased when we were visiting our daughter. I found it in her massive Sainsbury's.
    It's quite an interesting site though. icon_smile.gif
    If anyone's interested and has a Julian Graves shop close to them, their herbal and green teas are far better value than in Holland and Barrett or a Health Food Shop.
    I find their Dr Stuart's green tea very refreshing( and good for IBS!)

    Waitrose right now has a meal for two for 10 on right now. Includes one main dish, a side dish, a dessert and a bottle of wine. Very similar to the M&S deal.

    That's what makes it fun in this 'credit crunch' time. Recognising the " Je ne sais quois" in each and the bargains to be had in each one of them.
    Morrisons always has brilliant cheese offers..Tesco NEVER does. etc. etc.
    Lidls chicken kievs are excellent value and 100% meat!

    Only just found this thread..what a good idea!

    I too love to shop around...needs must in this financial situation, but I do get a buzz out of getting a bargain.

    Tesco is great on a late saturday afternoon for cut price fish, and diary products, I love going at that time...great bargains to be hard. Asda very rarely has this, or maybe I just miss them?! Lidel is great anytime, absolutley love the diffeent European food AND as much of the fresh fruit and veg are British which is great for the old carbon footprint! I love sainsbury's and Waitrose for the high end products...again Wednesday and Saturday afternoon is a good time for discounts.

    I will keep my eyes peeled for any ideas and will pop back and report.

    icon_confused.gif Have just found this link and think it's a great idea! Sadly the last post was months ago so are you still doing it or have I missed the boat?

    Hi there

    I think we must have run out of steam on this one icon_redface.gif

    Feel free to resurrect it....we've been quite quiet on the board generally for a while, I think it's just been overlooked.

    I have a tendency to ignore the special offers, especially the "buy one get one free" or buy a Gigantic packet for a cheap price....and that's not because I have loads of money....but I'm only shopping for myself and I don't always want to pay 2.99 for a giant something that I won't use and will end up throwing some away, againt the slightly lower price for the smaller one that I will use up but will still last me ages!

    LOL...I also have a terrible memory, so by the time I get home I've forgotten what the special offers were!

    If you've got a cat though, I think I remember Tesco's had the 12 pack of Felix pouches at 2 for 5 last week! icon_biggrin.gif

    If you feel up to it, come and join us in the Meet and Greet where we hang out most days....we're all house trained and we don't bite!
