£3.09 from Morrisons.
A coleslaw kit?
You don't get to choose, they just give you a banana box full of stuff.
Excellent value, provided you have a freezer or are prepared to eat it all this evening.
Mind you, "best before" is not the same as "use by".
Too good to go?
Some in the freezer, some will be used today other stuff over the next couple of days.
My sister got just bread.
Is there a name for this scheme? Is there any specific time or way to get these?
Too Good to go. You download the app and then businesses put up stuff and you buy it and then collect it. Blazer monor introduced us to it. They have aquirred another freezer to keep the stuff they get. They reckon they have got their weekly grocery bill (3 of them) to £20 per week using this scheme.
I am interested...
What a brilliant scheme for struggling families.
Does all that plastic not bother you?
What's the 9p for?
Why, It exists whether I have taken it from the store or they chuck it in a skip.
No idea. That is what they charge.
It should bother everyone, but unfortunately it's an integral part of the modern food supply industry. Quite a number of those items were not available in the form they are sold before supermarkets came along. The plastic keeps the food fresher, but its main purpose so far as supermarkets are concerned is to carry information about the products, including the sell by date and most importantly, the barcode.
Education is so good these days, it's possible to get a degree without being able to recognise the difference between a satuma and corn on the cob. If it wasn't written on the packet, nobody would know what it was. If you think I'm making this up, try buying some of the rarer loose produce and see how the checkout assistant gets on with identifying it.
I just don't like plastic food packaging, that's all.
Beautiful sky, mind.
I thought posting pictures of what you had for dinner was for "woke" hipsters on Faecebook?
You're not the only one, but until a viable alternative becomes available, it's going to be around. There are alternatives to plastic of course, but their cost makes them unviable. Anyone who wan't to reduce the amount of waste plastic, needs to comprehend every advantage it has so far as supermarkets are concerned. I outlined a few, but it's a very complex thing to get to the bottom of everything that would need to happen for supermarkets, let alone food producers to give it up.
I keep trying to get one of these from my local Morrisons but had no luck yet. You have a good selection there.
