Bit of a disappointing day today for raiders, a mere 3 items in the aisle and the biggest crime of all; someone had put 3 sandwiches in there to fool us, that hadn’t even been reduced! That has to be one of my pet hates.
But here are the results of today’s 14:30 raid of Tesco Express on City Road:
Total items found: 3
Breakdown: 0 Fresh Vegetables/Fruit, 0 Meat/Fish, 0 Side Dishes, 0 Ready Meals, 1 Baked Good, 0 Sandwiches, 0 Dairy/Yoghurt, 0 Inedible, 2 Drinks
- 2 cans of Carling – £4.67 to £2.10 Saving of £2.57
- 3 cans of Strongbow – £3.64 to £2.18 Saving of £1.46
- Quiche Lorraine – £1.88 to £1.35 Saving of 53p
And I searched all around the shop but found nothing elsewhere.
Total potential saving: £4.56, not so bad considering the few items available.
You know, my hypothesis was going so well until today…I had predicted that the best time would be 14:30 as the number of items had been steadily going up since Monday but alas, I was disproved.
It seems to me like the reduced aisle today offered just enough for an afternoon in the park: beers and a quiche but not really enough to get this seasoned raider excited I’m afraid.
Let’s hope day 6 of the BIG EXPERIMENT will be worthy of the caps lock…
