Salad days #thrifty
This week’s Aldi super-six has a few things for those summer salads. Cucumber, beetroot (500g), spring onions (100g), radish (250g), Iceberg lettuce and baby plum tomatoes (275g) are just the thing for summer salads and are just 29p each. A nice salad with some barbecued chicken is healthy.
The special buys today are varied, everything from things for pets to tools. The top buy is waterless wash and wax to give your car a quick clean.
The special buys on Sunday are varied too. Everything from a leather chair and stool to a steam mop. I might get some more cleaning wipes for glasses. I not only use them for my glasses, but for camera lenses too.
I went to Asda this week, because Aldi didn’t have everything I wanted. The checkout was so slow, maybe to encourage me to pick things up while I wait. I won’t be going in again for a while.
You can save quite a bit of money if you shop around. On the small things you save pennies that add up to pounds. On larger things you can make substantial savings. I want a new flash gun for my camera. The Nikon ones are hundreds of pounds, but a Chinese brand called Neewer would mean I can have a professional one for less than a hundred quid. Makes you think. Right?
There are also bargains to be had at car boot sales and markets, so don’t forget your small local traders. You not only get a bargain but help the local economy too. You can pick up music CD’s a DVD’s at a fraction of the price of new ones. Try to support charity sales too so a little of your money goes to good causes.
That’s all for this week. Have you seen a bargain? Please use the comments box to share it. You can follow this blog by entering your email address in the space at the top of the sidebar or just follow me on twitter for updates.
