My Saving Mission
So my saving money mission is going quite well tonight.
I've noticed around 7pm ever night in our local Tesco reduced items come out and there are always a lot of asian people in crowds, I used to wonder what they were doing, now I know.
So tonight I thought why not and I ended up getting 3 french baguettes for 11p each which would have been 45p each. I then saw a large crowd gathering round the fruit and veg area so I went over then all of a sudden the bloke came out with the reduced items and it was all hell broke loose, it was terrible, the people were practically fighting and I couldn't even get a look in. I did eventually and I got some jersey royals for 11p too so I was pleased as they looked fine.
The best bargain was when I saw the meat coming out and as I eat a lot of chicken breast meat and spend quite a bit on it I thought I'd see what was on offer. I was well pleased, I got 3 packs of chicken breast on skewers with chorizo which each would have been £4 each and I got them for £1 each, they are now in my freezer. I only eat chicken breast meat as I don't really like other meat and i spend a fortune on it so this was a fantastic saving for me.
So tonight I've saved quite a bit, the chicken would have been £12, I got for £3, the bread would have been £1.35 I got for 33p and I'm not sure how much the jersey royals would have been but they would have been more than 11p lol.
I'm quite pleased with myself and I'm really enjoying this saving lark.
I never thought I'd see myself hanging around waiting for the reduced items but sometimes needs must.
I do wish people wouldn't be so selfish though, some of the people were just grabbing stuff and putting in their trolley without a thought that someone else might want a share of what was on offer. I think next time I'll push them out the way like they did me!
I won't really, i'm not like that but perhaps I should be!
