fresh basil pot plant 58p for mozzarella salads.

i thought i better buy a basil plant instead as i seem to be making a lot of mozzarella with tomatoes as a salad, and the basil leaves does make a huge difference in taste. lidl was selling it, along with 35p cucumbers, and gem lettuce. i think their strategy of having 6 items at low price is a good strategy. it entices us to go there for those low priced items, and invariably we will find we need to buy extras for the dish we make out of them, and we find the other items are cheaper too. like for eg, their mozzarella, which i normally buy from sainsburys, i find here they are 5p cheaper.

every thursday they set out a new list of 6 items at reduced price, so it is a good thing to check them out online on thursday. and without thinking of it, i found i spent about £5 this shopping. with this kind of weather, salads are nice to have.

i find shopping for food very enjoyable. especially since i buy a lot of fresh food, and so there is the pleasure of handling the fresh produce. the vegetables and fruits are very firm and you get the feeling of lots of juice under the skin , that u get the impression that there is a lot just waiting to burst out of the skin when you cut it or bite into it.

    it is lower priced than all the other supermarkets. i wonder how they do it. but their influence is now felt with the other big supermarkets like tesco. now we get tesco giving low prices , like galia melons for 49p each… in the past we can never see tesco or sainsburys giving us that kind of prices.
