Because we live central to four different major supermarkets – Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and IGA – we have no difficulty going to wherever the specials are. We also don’t have a problem with ducking into a shopping centre for a couple of good bargains.
Today Tracey and I hit Woolworths before we picked the kidlettes up from daycare because we found a couple of specials in their catalogue this week – dishwashing liquid down from $2.99 to $1.49 each ($1.50 discount or 50% off) and 4ltr Olive Oil down from $49.99 to $19.99 ($30.00 discount or 60% off).
Naturally we stocked up.
And even though we bought $111.94 worth of product, we only spent $45.94, which even came in under our $50 a week of ‘bulk buying money’ we set aside, and is a MASSIVE! $66 saving for our pantry.
Every week the local supermarkets grace our letterbox with their catalogues and make playing one off against the other so much easier 🙂 I don’t understand why anyone would stick a NO JUNK MAIL sign up on their letterbox – they’re costing themselves money.
