To good to be true?

If I could offer you an interest savings rate of between 20% and 50%, with a quick return of just a few weeks, you would think it too good to be true, a scam etc. You would probably be correct in a money savings account.

However, from a food saving point of view, it isn't a scam and IS good value for money so to speak.

For example, two weeks ago, I bought wonky bell peppers for £0.99p. This week they were £1.19, that is a 20% increase. 

We quite like easy peeler mini oranges, they are usually £0.99p for 6. This week they were £1.49, almost 50% increase. We bought 6 satsumas instead for £0.99p.

See what I mean? If you apply those figures to almost everything on your shopping list, that can be stored long term, that would be a huge saving for the future. The money would be in your pocket and not those of the shops.


  1. We are away for the weekend, & I have just been to a "past best-before shop here in Dorset and stocked up on tinned goods at <25% of original price. I know they will be OK to eat over the next few weeks. I just wish I could find an equivalent shop in Norfolk.

    1. Those type of shops are getting hard to find and are good value. I must admit, we are looking at long term storage where possible.

  2. I never thought of it that way. Now when I go shopping I will be thinking this every time I pick something up.

    God bless.

    1. With the way things are going, seems apt doesn’t it?
