Some jeans that were reduced from £170 to £15. And they fit!
Even by my own beady eye standards, I think that's a record (they were labelled completely incorrectly re sizing).

^ my best ever bargains have been for that reason too. Either in TkMaxx or in charity shops: bought as a present and never worn, I reckoned in the latter case. And in TK Maxx on the shelf too long so red label, because the right sized people didn't find the item where they were looking.

Today I bought 6 new books for €10. And one for £24. Which I guess was less of a bargain, but it was on discount and only a couple of quid more than a second hand copy (I did check online first). And it's a very nice (and very big) book and I met the author today :D

Seven Dairy Milk Easter Eggs = £28 from Sainsbury's.

The same eggs would have cost £49 from the Co-op and £42 at Asda.

Result.

Bananas
Cucumber
Kale
Cat food
Tinned tomatoes
Tuna
Vodka.

16th April I think. I have left it a bit late in previous years and the Easter Eggs go up in price and the shelves are empty so I am so glad I got them early. I told my mother about the price difference and she hotfooted it to Sainsbury's.  :)
