    Asda Mild Curry Sauce - their very cheapest one is 9p per jar for 440g - lovely 1lb jars for jams, chutneys etc. The sauce is pretty disgusting - but at 9p it is cheap enough to throw away! This was a great tip from Sewer Rat. I went and bought 10 .... so much cheaper than buying jars from the Jam Jar Shop.

    On a similar vane........I buy mint sauce from T*sc*s for 15p, just to use the jars.
    If you don't want to be wasteful put all the mint sauce in a big jar!

    I went to Asda today, but didn't see any of that!!! Mind you, I did get a coolbox for £1.50, and a trolley barbecue for £2.50.
