Thrifty Thursday scrimping

The Aldi super-six this week are braeburn apples (6), mango, kiwis (8), plums (400g), pineapple and oranges (6). They are all 69p each.That’s the same as last week. On offer today are vegetable plug packs for 1.99. Its worth considering growing some veggies in the garden this year. Salad things like lettuces, spring onions, radishes and tomatoes are reasonably easy to grow.

Thrifty Thursday–saving even more money

The super-six at Aldi this week are; savoy cabbage, mild onions (3), beetroot (500g), lemons (3), carrots (1Kg) and broccoli (350g). They are all 39p each. I think I’ll have the broccoli, it is rich in vitamin C. Carrots contain beta carotene which is a double molecule of vitamin A, they’re very good for you too. Lemons are exceptionally high in vitamins C and great for making old fashioned lemonade.
