    Or maybe they just never thought of it(?) Asda's own curry sauce and pickled beetroot are 9 and 10p

    No mega-bargains, but I went to Tesco and got mint sauce jars (25p), lemon curd (22p) and blue cheese dressing* (23p).
    The mint sauce went down the sink, but the thick lemon curd went down the toilet - and blocked it

    I know it makes financial sense, but somehow my early training in "waste not, want not" rebels at the thought of buying food (however poor the quality) in order to throw it away and use the container!

    I had this problem too. I put the sauce in the freezer with the intention of using it later. I didn't. it ended up in the bin as the freezer was full and I needed space for more sloes

    We buy lemon curd at sainsbebbys - cheap stuff and clean the sink with it they have those nice rubberised inner lids that don't go cakky (not sure how to spell cakky)...22p

    I've just bought some 'value' marmalade from Tesxo for 27p. (454g jar)

    Unless you're really desperate I wouldn't recommend eating it, it's got quite a lingering aftertaste - so I don't feel too guilty about putting it on the compost heap.

    They've also got 99p 'value' runny honey. Smaller jars (340g), the honey is okay - you can make it go thick by putting a dab of thick honey into it.

    Pity I NEVER shop in that particular shop, as I use a LOT of runny honey, I prefer it to sugar in coffee.
