Freebie and Bargain Of The Week

This week we used more supermarket vouchers, some for bonus points on things we had on the shopping list anyway, such as laundry liquid, and another £3 off £20 these vouchers arrived at the right time as I needed things like rabbit litter, laundry liquid and other non-food items. When we use this final voucher we'll receive another £2.50 voucher to spend at our leisure. All in all this month we will have spent £100 at the supermarket (give or take), received £15 off our shopping and will have another £12.50 in vouchers, that's not too bad at all. 

The main bonus this week is from our internet provider. We were out of contract so Dan phoned to hear what they had to offer, after not too much negotiation we are paying £1 more per month than before, a fair bit less than the original offer, plus we now have super-fast broadband, which is great as we use internet tv now, and we have a few other bits and bobs to do with calls, not all that relevant but it's good to know should we need to use the landline it won't cost us a fortune. Shortly afterwards I received a text saying that as we have the new contract, and my phone is with the same provider, I now have an extra 5Gb data free of charge, great for when I'm out and about. 

At the other end of the spectrum, we had a voucher from the Co-Op for 50p off any of the free from range, so we ended up with a chocolate bar for 10p.

 
Finally, I bought some flowers from Aldi three Fridays ago and here they are 


Still looking amazing! Great value as they only cost me £2.

  1. Those supermarket vouchers can be a great help in keeping costs down, I use most of mine to stock up on basics. Bargain chocolate has to be a winner and those flowers! I have had some from Lidl that last for weeks and a few times a vastly reduced bunch that has done the same.

    1. I think stocking up on basics is the best way for us to use vouchers, as there are only two people here. It takes the sting out of more expensive, but necessary, purchases.

      I still haven't been to our new Lidl, there are so many roadworks here at the minute that it's harder to get to than it should be.

  4. Carnations are such good value aren't they. They seem to last so much longer than things like roses. Statice is another favourite..they seem good tempered if you dry them too.

    1. Oh thanks, I'll keep an eye out for them. I love flowers but I need then to last a little while, seems such a waste otherwise.
