cheap veg part 2

i see an advert from asda in the daily mail this morning giving 39p veg, but only for brocolli, parsnips,carrots, brussels sprouts. so not as good as the tesco ones, with it’s additional offers on potatoes, cauliflower(instead of brocolli).

i read also in the financial pages that the main supermarkets have lost sales to the budget supermarkets. so that might explain why they are reducing their veg. well, here is where competition is working to the benefit of us consumers.

but i am sure nearer christmas they will recoup their profits when the prices will rise and the public start buying seriously for christmas dinner.

most of us cook and eat in for christmas as almost all the shops are closed, and what keeps open are every expensive; not to mention all public transport is shut down. so supermarket shopping for food is huge in the run up to christmas. (that is why i avoid it as last minute shoppers get manic ) but once that is over, than expect to get lots of bargains in food as they sell off unsold foods. late christmas eve is a good time to go prowling the supermarkets. haha.

if  like me, you dont celebrate christmas, this time of year can be real peaceful and blissful. once u avoid all the food buying and the gifts buying, there is no stress anymore. that leaves u to really enjoy the holiday in your own way.

 added. i just now had a look at the aldi website, and they are selling brocolli, carrots,potatoes at 29p.  so even cheaper. no wonder the main supermarkets find it hard to compete.

      its getting cheaper too, lidl is selling it for 29p. chinese veg, for eg choy sum, chinese brocolli, etc are very expensive but they are very difficult to grow, i think.

        its one of the things i miss … chinese brocolli is really very special. nothing like it . the english brocolli just cannot compare. haha. i can never order it in chinese, because of my pronounciation. i cannot get the tone right when i ask for ‘kai lan’.somehow it comes out as a rude word. haha.
