Friday night bargains


OH has been away part of this week and I had a parents evening last night which meant I hadn't been to the gym all week.  So I was dragged along tonight even though it's Friday and I always spend Friday evenings slobbing on the couch.  I'll grudgingly admit I feel the better for it.  I really don't enjoy the gym but I am determined to keep myself fit, healthy and active well into my old age 👵  And OH is motivated enough for both of us!!

On the way home we popped into Sainsburys. I hit the meat jackpot.  There was a ton of meat from the butcher's counter in the yellow sticker section.  I picked up a slow roast silverside beef joint reduced from £11.25 to £2.79.  It's already doing it's thing in the slowcooker.


Plus 2 fillet steaks reduced from £8.75 to £2.19 and 2 ribeye steaks reduced from £8.40 to £2.09

All Scottish meat and cut in store by a real butcher.  I got £28.40 worth of meat for £7.07.  That's a lot of quality meat for a quarter of the cost.  And lots of potential meals for the freezer 😊

I'm glad I went to the gym tonight 💪

  1. Though I don't eat much meat, for those that do, you've found good prices and the slow cooker is a godsend at my house. Enjoy.

    1. I'm finding I'm eating less meat now, really only when OH is here so that haul will last me for weeks :-)

  2. What a brilliant way to get your meat. Are you going to the gym next Friday and then on to Sainsbugs.

    1. We don't normally do gym on Friday nights but I'm tempted to try Sainsbury's on a Friday at 9pm again! They also had loads of kidneys and liver (lamb's liver at 9p!!) but I don't eat offal so it wouldn't have been a bargain for me. A bargain is only a bargain if you need it
