  1. Your new storage looks pretty now, and what a bargain! You certainly need extra storage with all the bargains you find. Honestly, Marlene, you are without doubt the Queen of the Yellow Stickers & Bargains! x

    1. Thankyou Sadie, I am on the look out for some pretty knobs to finish it off, I am going to be good this is not a cupboard for my bargains, I have started to fill it with all my special teas, old fashion style bowls and bakeware which I love and pretty china, I will show the inside when I have finished.xx

  3. I agree with Sadie, the new storage looks great! What a lot of bargains - what do you do with the tomatoes? Make them into tomato soup or tomato sauce? And my goodness, the men in the family are going to be clean for the next decade, aren't they? What a bargain those shampoos are! Is that spinach? What do you do with all that? Can you freeze it or, again, do you make soup? You really have eyes for a bargain, Marlene! Well done!

    1. Thank you Margaret, I have been on the lookout for a kitchen dresser but that wasn't going to happen as it is a small space just inside the door, but this does the job, I had a kitchen trolley in that space before, this has now been moved to the utility area. In the bags it is mini salad leaves, a mix of lettuce, chard and spinach, we love tomatoes, I will often just eat one or two when I go to the fridge, I roast them sometimes and yes I do sometimes make sauce or add to soup.

  7. Goodness me! My local Asda only ever a tiny selection of yellow stickers in the morning at around 11am. Things are reduced only by a very small amount. By late afternoon there is nothing left. Tesco is marginally better but not a lot.

  8. Wow Marlene what a haul. You do so well on yellow stickers. I did get a couple of packs of tomatoes today for 13p each! Brilliant additional storage too.

  11. You've done very well with that cupboard. We don't get very good yellow sticker deals down south where I live. They tend to just reduce by 20p or something just as generous.

    1. I guess it must be to do with shopping habits in certain areas.

  12. Very nice cabinet and great yellow sticker finds too, how is Asda's shower gel? Is it any good?
