A Touch of Magic!


I can't remember who pointed me in the right direction ( I have tried to back track to find out, to no avail) but I downloaded the Too Good to Go app and this morning found a Magic Bag on offer at the Spar supermarket not too far away.  I am excited!  There is supposed to be a bag containing £10 worth of food for the princely sum of £3.09 which I can collect after 7pm tonight.  I wonder what it will contain?  There could be fruit, veg, meat, fish etc but it's a lucky dip.  All will be past the sell by/use by date so I'll let you know in a post tomorrow what I get.  Meanwhile a big 'thank you' to whoever shared the information in the first place.

Watch this space!

Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x


EDIT: I have just found the information on Marlene's blog PoppyPatchwork.  Thank you Marlene.

SECOND EDIT: I had only just come off the computer when I received a text to say that my order has been cancelled because the supermarket doesn't have enough surplus food to fulfill the order. My payment via PayPal has been refunded but I am gutted......

I think I'll just shut up shall I..... 🀐

  1. How annoying, we have loved our bags, both very different both very enjoyable. +ope you pick another one soon. We only use our local M&S garage as it the only one we can walk too..

  2. I can only assume that people are stocking up for the bank holiday so that everything sold out and there is little left to reduce. I will try again. We don't have anywhere within walking distance but the Spar was a short drive away. Thank you for the tip anyway, Marlene, I'm bound to get lucky at some point πŸ˜‰xx

  3. Oh what a shame, I love surprises. I got a Lidl box for £1.50 last year and I was over the moon.

  5. Such a shame, fingers crossed for next time.
    I have just downloaded the app. Hope you are well? I have been away from blogging for a while now, but all is good in my world, now I have divorced and started over, hence me blogging again.

  10. Have you tried Olio? If you have got a few people in your area who subscribe then it would work well. I have not got enough people in my area but I have managed to get a couple of things.

  11. Good concept but how disappointing for you. I guess it is just a bad day that stuff were insufficient. We don't have such offers here. Try again and good luck. Dropping in fr Malaysia
