Are you sick to the back teeth of hearing / reading about eggcellent value, bargain eggstravaganzas and eggsquisite deals?
Yup, me too, so to cut the BS, see below for a rapid-fire overview of the shopping deals in stores this weekend.
- Irish Lamb Leg - €7.99 per kilo
- Roasting Potatoes...
Sometimes, just sometimes, you can get very lucky indeed in the half-price section. But you have to be careful. Don’t get fooled by the shiny red or yellow stickers proclaiming their products’ bargain status. ‘Slashed’ from €2.59 to €2.39 is not a bargain, especially as it’s going out of date...Read More
We all love a good roast, and at this time of the year it’s all about the lamb. A lovely fresh, tasty and light meat, it is unfortunately also bloody expensive, and so here’s our pick of the top offers in the supermarkets for lamb. These are just the...Read More
Good God, I ventured into Tesco, Dooradoyle, Limerick on Thursday night. That’s the evening before Good Friday, when alcohol can’t be sold. It was like a battlefield. You’d swear Irish people would never ever be able to get hold of a bottle of chardonnay for ever more! Anyway, if...Read More

Oh crap. The half price Easter Eggs are here. That means that my tired resistance-devoid brain will reckon that instead of spending €3.79 on a bag of Maltesers I’d be muuuuuch better off, and farrrrr more frugal if I just bought an Easter egg instead. Or two. Or three....Read More
This week the offers at Supervalu include 33% off Irish Leg of Lamb (fair play for allowing us to stock up on our Easter joints early!) priced at just €8.97 per kilo, not bad going. A little less interesting are the reduced round roast (€7.03) and pork steak (€6.44)...Read More
