In ASDA this morning. Lot's of the ready prepared chopped up fruit and veg which is going to rapidly deteriorate in terms of vitamin content and quickly become spoilt and thrown out, while the unprepared fruit lasts for days. An expensive waste of good food. There
The ultimate horror was Kingsmill selling white sliced bread with the crusts ready cut off. £1.25 for a crustless 400 gram loaf. £1.35 for a crust on 800 gram loaf.
thatbags that's a helluva trip for shopping! It sounds quite normal to me if I want to avoid Tesco, that is!
Not as long as the lady in the news today who went out on a 6 mile trip to buy a dress, got lost in the fog and spent the next 6 hours driving around, eventually tracked down by the police because her DD had reported her as a missing person. She didn't find a dress she liked either!
I find that pre prepared fruit and veg is the best way of buying small amounts when you live alone. I bought a huge iceberg lettuce the other day and I would have taken a week to eat it at every meal. So I buy small prepared salads and sometimes veg but I find prepared fruit is quite expensive.
Prepared fruit is expensive, but an occasional treat! Better for me than eyeing up a pineapple I bought thinking it would be lovely then putting off cutting it up and ending up throwing it out. (don't tell Hugh F-W!)
