Everything is so expensive at Christmas" moaned a friend of mine this morning in the school playground. Do you agree? I don't. At least mostly I don't. You see all that Christmas stock takes up valuable shelf space in stores, and most shops have very limited storage space to keep things til January. Lots of these items end up on the clearance shelf to make way for premium priced cousins.
For example a 600ml bottle of fairy should be about £2-£2.30 but thanks to the new flavour out for Christmas, cucumber and aloe has been banished to the clearance corner.They also had the more expensive but smaller platinum range of flavours too, but they were almost half the size of the cucumber ones. The frugalista in me choose to get the most for my money.
Clearance price? 50P a bottle! I snapped up four which should keep me in suds for a good long while.
So next time you spot a Christmas edition of a product, it might be worth looking for the old one
