I frequently pick up the free magazines in Tesco, Sainsbury and Waitrose as they always have subjects of interest to most mums and grans.
One I collected from Tesco yesterday has plenty of cost cutting meal ideas, a nice section on breads and an interesting section on summer drinks, however, what really caught my eye was an article on Tesco children's 'back to school' wear.
Prices are amazing and the materials incorporate new technology to stop fading in the colours and keep white shirts whiter for longer.
The shoes are modern and anti scuff too (I deplore children going to school with scruffy clothes and dirty looking shoes) and I take my hat off to supermarkets who cater for mums on tight budgets who want affordable and hard wearing uniforms for their children.
Anyone who moans that they can't afford to kit out their offspring, especially the under 10s, could do no better than looking at the major supermarket players, as IMV, they're practically giving the stuff away.
All in all, the magazines provide a free and interesting read with that afternoon cake and cuppa. I just find it hard to throw them out.
Incidentally, Tesco are selling 3 varieties of grape in wooden crates for £3 and autumn crysanths in 6's for £3.
Besides other shopping I bought the grapes and a huge potted plant plus a smaller button crysanth and lugged home on the bus, all 3 carriers plus a back pack crammed full.
I was knackered.
