Some good deals I have found this week.....



Our favourite butter was on offer for £1.50 normal price up to £2.80 depending on the supermarket.


Stocking up to keep us going until the next offer.

This popcorn cost just 35p for a pack of 6 after cashback from a shopping app - I believe the offer is no longer available.





Asda are clearing these dishwasher tablets, was £14 down to £5.00

These will keep me going for a while

All this for free.......

Hot chocolate, who cares if it is Freddo the frog, I don't,  its just hot chocolate. Free from a shopping app ( offer now expired).




2 packs of seeds.



2 free mini perfumes, shampoo and some skincare



Love free stuff, saves my money.


Other thrifty things today.

Bread & butter pudding slice made for the last of some reduced to 19p bread.




My 19p marrow has been turned into chutney.


I added some of these reduced shallots


A handful of sultanas, some spices, cheap malt vinegar and brown sugar.















I spotted some of the garlic had started to sprout, so I planted it outside.



So just another thrifty week .

  1. I really don't know how you do it Marlene. I never seem to come across such good, reduced offers. You have a gift. As ever, I stand in awe at your thriftiness. The chutney looks fab. X

  2. I'll be interested to know how your garlic grows. A friend says theirs never does as well from shop bought cloves. Love the look of that chutney.

  7. Great Bargains. Looking at the piled up tubs of butter reminded me that I bought Daz Go Pods when they were on special offer. Every time I went to the shop I grabbed a tub, now every time I open a cupboard there's a tub of bloody Daz Go Pods, ha ha, they're all over the place. I went a bit overboard with it, although they will get used, eventually! :D

  8. Hubby is checking on line for the olive oil and butter spread, it's our favorite as well, and we could do with stocking up.

  9. Wonderful bargains, Marlene! But popcorn? Are you planning on opening up a home cinema with all that popcorn? Strangely enough, it's not something I would buy regardless of how inexpensive. I must be odd but we don't buy pizzas, popcorn, crisps (well, we do have those occasionally - at Christmas and in the summer to have with a salad) but we only like say, Burt's, and sea salt kind, not all those ghastly flavours), take-aways, or ready meals. We are old fashioned, aren't we! But no matter how cheap something is, if we don't want it, we don't want it. But who cares about that frog as long as the drinking chocolate is OK? Our favourite is Twynings Swiss Milk Chocolate drinking chocolate, it's gorgeous, better than (dare I say it?) Charbonnel & Walker (which we had as a present, I'd not spend that kind of money on drinking chocolate, it's easier to buy a bar of dark chocolate and melt it into hot milk, that is what hot chocolate should be, anyway.)
    As I don't like butter, we eat Bertolli spread, and that is now *£1.30 instead of £1.99!!! So I bought four packs. I haven't room in the freezer for more than that, but I'd have cleared the shelf if I had!
    Have a lovely weekend, the sun is out but there's still a nippy wind in these parts, so we're now indoors. *In Waitrose

  10. Well don't forget we have Jack and he has an unlimited cinema pass and he goes several times a week, I eat it occasionally as well, and crisps well we don't eat them that often maybe a pack a week. I only buy if we can make good use of it, its all about pennies in the long run for us. It has been very warm here it is nearly 6.30 now and I am still in a short sleeved top.

  11. Oh, I'd forgotten Jack and his cinema pass and you can't go to the cinema without popcorn, ha ha! I think I last had popcorn before we came here, so that would be pre 1985. I bought popping corn and made my own, and covered it with syrup, it was lovely. But a one-off treat, such as crisps and pizzas. Mind you, I'm very partial to a chocolate biscuit and also Waitrose Belgian Dark Chocolate with hazlenuts ...
