Save, save, save #thrifty
We all need to save some money and so we have to shop around and look for bargains. We also have to make good use of what we have and think about disposing of things too. It can cost money to get rid of junk!
Save, save, save money
The Aldi super six this week are the same as last week; Galia melon, mini bananas (7), oranges, large vine tomatoes (500g), white mushrooms (380g) and mixed peppers (3). They are all 69p each and the offer continues until Thursday 18th of June. Those will save money! I looked at the mini bananas and then bought a kilo of big bananas for 68p; I still got 7 bananas, but large ones!
The special buys at Aldi today are mostly for Father’s Day. I like the retro wooden boxes, they contain those retro things I remember from childhood, a harmonica, yo-yo, table tennis and juggling. I know, I’m showing my age! There are also some plywood model kits. I’ll look at the leather belts (4.99). I’ll check the size this time, I had one before that said 32 – 36” and it only measured 28 inches. There’s a Remington hair clipper too, that could save you some money in hair cuts. I have one of those, but mine’s only battery. It trims my beard OK though.
Save, save, save on Sunday
You might have seen the Barclay’s advert showing you internet tips that can save you money, like searching for voucher codes using Google before spending money. You can also search for specific special deals. There is a £5 coupon in the Daily Mirror for Aldi on the last Thursday of the month, which could be useful. I found that doing a search (the paper costs 50p). In some Aldi stores they have the Mirror by the tills.
Checking reviews online for products can save you money too. I often shop at Amazon and look at other customers reviews and you can even ask other customers questions. I have just took delivery of a solid state hard drive for my laptop, which I’ll fit myself and I checked with other customers which cable I would need to transfer all my stuff to the new drive. The cable had to be ordered separately. What I didn’t like was it seems Amazon automatically put me on Amazon Prime. I have a 30 day trial, I hope it cancels itself, because I’m not paying for it. I got my SSD quickly, but it’s no good without the cable!
Save, save, save on outings
You can check online for free events to go to as well. I went to Tipton Carnival last weekend. Look for events on Facebook too.
