Sainsbury (and tesco?) begin to reduce prices of food that is close to its sell by date 2 hours before closing, and then an item is further reduced every half hour until it is finally taken off the shelf.... now the most common items are pastrys (daily) and bread which tends to be sold off around 3 times a week! Now depending when you go it can be as low as 10p... and people are usually clever and leave it untill it goes down to that... and then it all goes.

Hehe, thank you They all seem to be packaged nicely... i tend to avoid the sainsbury's own celophane packaged loafs... they are usually hard and so that puts me.

The sainsbury i go to is on Tottenham court road... mayb thats why they go down to 10p, i duno?

that's good. it's nothing too bad but quite a few get dropped on the floor if they are opened accidentally - just go for the sealed ones where u can tell theres no way they could have been opened

Is the pricing issue this desperate now? Like students resorting to 10p breads, and crisps to survive? Or did you spend all your money into alcohol?

Hehe... no its just that i plan to save the majority of my student loan... and work in the summer (+one holiday per year) and then come out with enough for a deposit on a house... if i do medicine after my current degree then that will be somewhere abound £40,000 (that figure will rise if top up fees are introduced and i end up getting an £8000 loan per year)

Matt plans for the future and juggles his money

I was wondering, do you get a staff discount?

And what if you decide to say, get a friend in and reduce perfectly good stuff down to minimal prices for her? Then split the goods at home?

A nice cake for £1 is a good buy...or a bottle of wine for £3

Usually the manager organises the reduced items.. and big chain supermarkets are extreemly tight on security
