It’s been a great few days for food finds. After a long period of not much luck, and slipping off my diet for a couple of weeks it seems my luck has turned again. Hurrah!
It started in my old favourite Tesco in the city which had a random entire roll cage of medium size eggs for 32p a box. And the date is not for almost two weeks. Yay! I got two boxes for myself and one for my flatmate. Egg party at our house!
Next up was a random give away stand for Felix cat food I passed in Waterloo station. I was in a bit of a rush so didn’t have time to linger there but it was all in aid of an ad campaign which has been all over Facebook today. See here. Great fun, I wish I had time to muck about. Two sachets of cat food however, for free? Yes please! Now, the fact I don’t actually own a cat may initially be cause for concern, but my flatmates folks do, so a free dinner for the furry felines Jones and Porkins it is. Meowzers!
And for the grand finale my fella and I popped into the big Tesco to grab some tinned tomatoes for a dish he is making us tomorrow- look out for the recipe coming up soon – when we happened upon the discount bin final reductions.
- 2 punnets of finest vine tomatoes – 15p each.
- 2 bags of finest Ramiro pointed peppers – 15p each.
- 1 bundle of broccoli – 4p
- 4 avocado pack – 18p
Then in the middle of an isle, at the bottom of a roll cage which I initially thought was new stock I spotted a yellow sticker poking out. Uncle Bens Sweet and Sour rice time lunch pots, loads of them at 50p each. EPIC! I swooped in and picked up 12. That’s two and a half weeks of work lunches for 6 quid. I am so chuffed. They aren’t the best calorie wise at 330kcal but not too bad, and they really fill me up.
So, all in all a great week!
Tip – try tesco veg bins at half 10 at night, bargains to be had!
