It is funny how prices move up and down

I compare the prices of food and drink using the Internet site called My Supermarket. I love it when special offers occur and I can stock up. The apple bars my son likes went on offer at one pound and ninety nice pence for a pack so I really shocked up. I like the fruit juice that is almost one pound cheaper than usual. When recycled toilet roll was on offer I bought loads. Do you watch price movements of the food and drink you like to buy? Is there enough storage space for bulk buying when a bargain deal happens?

We are always bulk buying, recently there was a good reduction in Ribena which I love to drink, I think it was half price, under the price tag it tells you how long the offer is on for so each week we would buy 4 bottles of ribena, I now have a long supply of ribena, hopefully when I use it all up they will have another best buy on ribena! You can save a lot of money if you can afford to bulk buy and as you rightfully stated if you have the room to store it all!

We can always go find a room for the items v we intend to buy in bulk. If these are good food most especially I am sure we can squeeze then in the drawers somewhere. We go to grocery stores every weekend and usually prices go up more than it goes down, and when it did go down you can expect it is probably because that the items are near expiry so be careful with those. Now that I mentioned this I remember one time in news tv there was this mom who got interviewed and she was crying because her son was hospitalized for the pack of chocolates he ate. It was sold on this grocery that bargained the chocolates. It was still two months before expiration and when the mother and the news personnel open a pack of c the chocolates there are worms in it! On the label it was to expire two months from the time but it had worms! So just be careful and I only buy trusted brands on sale.

We have two for one days and also Tuesday 10 percent and that is when I stock up. The most of the time, I do not have enough to buy anything except for a week. I have this favorite supermarket where I get the bargains, but only can buy so much like up to five at a time. With toilet paper, I can store two or three but that is all, but when it comes to tomato cans and meats, I can stock quite a bit.

Yeah, it's really difficult to keep up with the prices, and what to buy where. Every store has different bargains. I always read the catalogues that are sent free to our mail, and I check out more stores, always, when I'm doing my shopping.
