A cracking bargain




I didn't go shopping for bargains on Sunday as I have been using up the stores. Our son wanted to go up to Asda for a few things last night, so I went for a walk with him.

I couldn't leave these behind.


15 eggs for 20p and dated the end of the month although they will keep longer.
They are free range which is all I will buy.

60 eggs for 80p. 


There was a whole shelf there, some horrible man was being greedy, he must have been a business owner, he was going crazy stacking them in his trolley, he gave me a right filthy look when I picked up some, but that wouldn't stop me. 

Omelette for tea tonight then and several egg dishes over the next few weeks.







Then I spotted some cereal on the end of an isle, 20p each in date until the end of October, so 3 boxes of choco snaps for son, which can also be used to make crispy squares, and 3 boxes of bran flakes, I have some of these which I am using at the moment , they are nice I do enjoy them.

6 boxes of cereal for £1.20




So £2.00 for all of the above.

Fantastic bargain.

If you have an Asda near you it is worth checking because they are regularly clearing products.

  1. Wowzer, those really at bargains!!! We eat bran flakes but not cocoa cereals as I don't like the milk when it goes the colour of mud, tee-hee! Mind you, I love hot choc, so it's a silly reason not to enjoy cocoa cereals!

    1. I am the same I won't eat coco cereals or sugary cereals myself. We had our favourite fruit & yogurt with a little granola and drizzle of honey this morning. I will very often have a bowl of bran flakes for lunch.

    2. I love bran flakes but what I do is this ... I put out bran flakes in a bowl, then I add some Jordan's Raspberry Crunchy cereal. They don't have all that many raspberries, sadly, so I add fresh raspberries and a sliced small banana and also some sultanas and then milk and that's heaven in a bowl!

    3. That's nice I am happy to eat plain, but sometimes I do add fruit, I do love fruits.

  2. What a bargain! Just after the war my Grandma preserved eggs in waterglass. Can't remember how they tasted!

    1. I had never heard of that, I just googled it and had a look. It is amazing what people used to do to preserve and make things last.

  3. Definitely cracking bargains Marlene.
    I once saw a woman and her friend block off the area where the reduced veg were so that nobody else could get near and between them they took everything that was there. I was disgusted-x-

    1. I think the stores should crack down a bit, the greedy buggers spoil it for everyone else, I know I like my yellow stickers but there are always plenty for everyone else.

  4. Eggsellent buy! Cheep eggs, you aren't yolking, are you? You didn't have to shell out for that cracking bargain either. Okay, I'll go quietly now ~~~
    I buy local free range organic eggs, not cheap {yes, I do know how to spell! lol} at about £2.00 for six but eggs is something I have to have just the right ones or I can't eat them.

    1. I know greed just makes my blood boil, but I was having none of it, the man didn't scare me.

  6. I hate when people are greedy, it can ruin it for everyone. We never seem to get many sticker deals, our Asda closes at 10, we should maybe try going a lot later than we do xx

    1. They are always clearing things, sometimes it is on the usual shelves, I have a beady eye, I soon spot the bargains.

  8. I got cornflakes cheap in Asda a few weeks ago. The man was busy restocking the shelves with the new version - the packet looked identical until we checked the weight. The pack has now shrunk and the price has gone up!

    1. Yes that is just what my husband said to me, he said they were clearing to making the packs smaller and put up the price.

  9. That's a lot of eggs. Spanish omelette maybe? Once again you're on top form with your bargains.
    I remember I accidentally once bought eggs from caged hens. In my defence, we were on holiday in an unfamiliar supermarket and I hadn't noticed the label. As you can tell, I still feel dreadfully guilty years later. X

    1. I get fed up with it up Asda I have seen it there so many times its usually men and I think they are business owners, I think they should stagger the bargains a bit, I love my yellow stickers but I don't and wouldn't clear the shelves, it is darn greedy the way some behave.xx

  11. I buy all my eggs from an old lady in a nearby village who keeps hens. £2 a dozen. They're lovely and very big.

    1. Where we used to live we picked up trays of farm eggs they were lovely, lots of double yolks, we really should try and find a local farm.

  13. blimey. you never fail to amaze me with the amount of bargains you find. I strolled up to Asda this morning, and spotted their 'cheap' section. Cheap my eye. Lots of out of season stuff but still too highly priced if you ask me. They don't seem to reduce things very much here. Those eggs were a brilliant bargain! xx

  14. Simply amazing! How long do you eat eggs past their BBD, Marlene? Not that I could be so lucky to get your bargains but sometimes I have a box of eggs lurking.

    1. I don't keep them in the fridge, but I have always used them a few weeks out of date and never had a problem.
