One of the things we'd like to do through this site is give practical tips for finding the best deals.
Each supermarket towards the end of the day will drastically reduce their items that are about to go off. Some reduce their items by more than others, we want to find the shops that reduce the most, have the best variety and then let you know when they do this, as they don't usually advertise this time.
We've found that due to Northern Ireland's limited Sunday opening times, Saturday evening can be the ideal time to find the best reductions.
Marks and Spencers, Lisburn Road: 6:30-7pm
-This sometimes has very good reductions on ready meals, and on baked goods. You can get a bag full of specialty scones/pastries/crossiants and the like for 50p.
Marks and Spencers, Forestside 6:30-7pm
-Not a huge selection of reductions on our attempts, some meat items and some reduced ready meals, but not reduced by a large enough margin. Only a pound off here and there, we want to proper reductions.
Sainsburys, Forestside 6:30-7pm
-Staff explained that they aim to have reductions by 6:30 but sometimes if staff is low they'll be done by 7pm. They have a great selection of reduced vegetable produce. We got a 2kg bag of sainsbury's finest potatoes for 54p, sainsbury's finest carrots for 24p, a mango for 49p (down from £2) and fresh beets reduced to 36p from £1.60.
We'll add more over the next few weeks, comment and let us know about the shops in your area.
Happy Hunting!! (we might just see you there).
