As Britney Sang....

OOPS I did it again.................


I usually buy Bertolli with Butter and stock up when it is on offer as it is our favourite, with only a scrape left in the fridge and no offers I walked up Asda after tea and ended up picking up one of these instead.





I rang my husband told him I would need picking up, I do drive myself but always walk when I don't need much.

The reason for not walking back was I walked past the clearance shelf and spotted this lot.

25p 
Ideal for..............
Pies, crumbles, cheescake toppings, stirred through yogurt.


Mandarins 25p 



Pineapple 20p


Shortcrust pastry mix 4 of those 30p each.



Cake cases 11p


Decorations - 25p

Never bought frosting before but thought I would for 50p.
Silver Balls for Christmas bakes 24p.
Ice cream Sprinkles 44p


Hundreds and Thousands 12p


 Blueberries 38p
Lemons & Limes 25p
Lettuce 10p


2 packs of green beans 30p each
Broad Beans 34p




Veg pack 23p
Potatoes 12p



Grand total with the butter £13.31



Amazing.

It's true I am getting quite addicted to bargains, but I am thinking about all the money we will save in the long run, then we can reach our savings goal.

  1. I just showed your haul to my hubby asking why this never seems to happen at our Asda, sigh. Well done, definitely worth a lift home with all those tins xx

  2. Hahahaha! Love that you needed picking up, but you did well.

    I haven't seen pie filling for years, it's off my radar these days as we don't eat much pie, but I used to use it to make Dump Cake for a treat every once in a while. Hmmmmm, now I just might have to make me a Dump Cake!

    1. Thanks for the idea I have never heard of or made a Dump Cake, just googled it, very simple so I shall try one sometime x

  3. Great bargains there on the tinned foods - I use frozen forest fruits for summer pudding (which we like all year round) and I've found that the Asda frozen fruit is the best, even better than Waitrose. However ... I'm not a cupcake person at all so I'd pass on all that cupcake sprinkly doodahs, but fun if you enjoy making these things. I'm a greedy hog, I love proper cakes, large ones, fruit cakes, coffee and walnut sponges, lemon drizzle, toffee apple cake ... but not cupcakes. But ... let's see some of your cupcakes when you've made them and used some of those decorative bits and pieces. Maybe you will convert me!

    1. Hello Margaret, I think if and when I get some room in the freezer I will get some, certainly cheaper than fresh and can be used for many things I have used for jam before.

    1. We have fruit and yogurt quite a bit so when I have no fresh there will always be tinned.

  6. You really scored. You have such better bargains in foods in England. We never have packaged veggies on sale like that. I think you did well scooping all the goodies up.

  7. seriously, I am in awe. You always do so well.
    I was going to say 'I never find bargains like that', which is true, but I've been doing my weekly shop online recently - Waitrose have had some superb half price offers on cleaning products, making them cheaper than Asda - but I was in Asda on Sunday and I didn't see any such bargains. I would have bought the pie filling had I seen it!

    love the new header graphic, very seasonal :o) xx

    1. Thankyou, I am going to do seasonal wallpapers and headers from now on.
      I really like Waitrose I use to shop there all the time and guess what it was for yellow stickers xx

  8. Now that was one impressive haul, we don't have an Asda near us. We have quite a substantial co-op in our village which I do get lucky in occasionally.

  11. Good grief, no wonder you needed a lift! Your YS radar worked tremendously well yesterday. I don't know how you manage to spot so much in one trip. Well done! xx
