Thrifty Thursday: Christmas Countdown 13 days

The super six at Aldi today are clementines (600g), Brussels sprouts  (750g), Maris Piper potatoes (1.5Kg), parsnips (750g), carrots (1.5Kg) and lemons (5). They are all 69p. That offer lasts until the end of the month with new offers beginning on the 2nd of January. I think we can assume they will be closed on the 1st of Jan.

I had apples last week and they aren’t very tasty, but I am used to apples from my own trees. I think I’ll have grapes this week.

Comet and Snapfish

When I received a email from Comet this morning saying I could get 99 photo prints for 99p; it sounded good. I clicked the link and it went to Snapfish, it appears I’m already registered and I logged in; no 99p deal, it disappeared. I assume that is bait for people they deem new customers and hence people not yet suckered. I thought take a look around, I had just entered the ‘Enchanted’ photograph above in a photographic contest and so looked at getting it printed on canvas. (more…)
