Shopping day today, not a lot needed, in fact I won't need to buy hardly any food for myself for the next few months, I am well stocked up. I went in search of cat food. I only buy this when it is on offer, the supermarkets seem to take it in turns and play one off against the other. I see 2kg bags of Whiskas dry are two for £7 in Morrisons, but across the road I got four bags from Pets at Home, for £12. All three of my cats eat it so I get through a fair bit, and if I can save a few bob by shopping around I will do.
I checked various web sites before I went out to see which shop has the best prices. Couldn't find a special offer which was cheap enough on Felix pouches. Some places advertise two boxes of 12 for £6, not bad, but still not the cheapest. There is a big box of 44 pouches, used to be 48, and these are sometimes on the shelves at £10, but the shop that was advertising them had sold out. I happened to look in Wilkinsons, now called Wilko's, on the off chance. I find this shop quite expensive for most things, I very rarely buy anything there. Worth a check though if passing. I found some boxes of 12 Felix foil trays for £2.50 each, that's more like it. There isn't much difference between the pouches and trays, product wise, and the size is the same, so a good buy. I bought as much as I could carry. Didn't take the shopping trolley, because I usually buy from places where I can park my car close by. Wilko's is in the town centre, so whatever you buy from there has to be carried.
Next I called in at Poundstretcher. I've been stocking up on cat litter, ready for the winter. They have some clumping litter at 99p a 10kg bag. I've got fifteen bags in my downstairs lavvy. Just wait for the cold wet weather when the cat's won't go outside, ha ha. I shall be ready for it.
I called into Aldi as I was passing, to see what veg and fruit they had on specials. I got seven bananas for 68p, and a head of broccoli for 39p, which I thought was a very good price. In fact that's all I bought, that's all I needed.
A quick eyeball in the Cash and Carry on the way home, nothing much in there, sometimes they have reduced cheese, but not today. I picked up eight of these Maggi noodles for £1. The little packet of spice mix inside is too hot for my liking so I add my own flavourings. They are quite nice, a bit like Super Noodles only a lot cheaper, and handy to have some in for a quick lunch snack.
