Evening all. Looks like I'm setting up shop here at Tightwad Towers, ha ha. A nice pile of tinned fruit was purchased today. We have three Poundstretecher stores here, they didn't have any more of this the other day when I got three tins, so today I went to the town centre store and found they have a stack of it, so I bought another twelve tins. That's my fruit juice sorted for a while then. £2.28 for this little lot. I grab it while I can, to save some money.
If I was to buy 12 cartons of Tesco Value orange juice at 65p per carton, it would cost £7.80, so a tidy sum saved there, all for the inconvenience of opening a tin and zapping the fruit with a blender. It tastes fabulous as well, with bits of real fruit in it.
I have discovered that my cats like this Feline Fayre food. It's not always a good idea to try cats with new food, but if you do, it's best not to bulk buy it untill you can be sure they like it. B & M have been selling this for 25p a sachet, but today I found some for 19p at Home Bargains, which is a good price, so I bought a few of them.
This Whiskas is what I saw the other day when I didn't have the means of carrying it, so today I took my car and stocked up. Mind you, I didn't get these from Pets at Home, I actually found them cheaper in The Range. Just goes to show, you've got to know your prices. These were £10 for 48, which works out far cheaper than buying a single box of twelve. Heidi likes this one so that's her sorted for a while.
I wrote about this cat litter a long time ago, as I was dead chuffed that I had found it because it was cheaper than the supernarkets own brand. First of all this was £1.29 in Home Bargains. Then I found it in Poundland, now Poundstretcher have it in for 99p. Again, it's all about knowing your prices.
Now this is worth a try. I found some big jars of peanut butter at two for £1 in B & M. As you can see my normal Value peanut butter is 62p for a smaller jar. So, I don't know what this is like yet as I haven't tasted it, but I will often try a different brand if it appears to be better value than what I usually buy. I am always flexible to new ideas. No harm in trying if it could save you a few pennies.
I remembered that it's time to get the seed potatoes chitting in readiness for the forthcoming growing season. I chose three varieties for my three beds. There are eight in a packet for 99p each. Hopefully the crops won't be as poor as they were last year, and I should get enough spuds for the Summer and Autumn.
My lunch today was wholemeal pasta, and scrambled egg with spinach. Twas very filling.
