Nonsense - plenty of skips to forage in.

steal it?wink

What's the point?

Overmydeadbody Thu 28-May-09 22:28:41

Aldi and Lidl aren't always the cheapest options.

There is still urban foraging to consider, and reduced bin scrummages just before closing time at the supermarkets wink

goober - the point was thatthis was joking because today there were so many threads about affording free range chicken, affording M&S food etc. but suppose you had to be there.... blush

If you can't afford to buy food, you should cut down and only eat once a week. It's pretty simple, I'm sure somebody can post some good recipes for meals using cardboard, rainwater and grass.

You can have a healthy balanced diet just from foraging in the park
If you can't afford organic food then you shouldn't have kids imho

I do get it, I was on the egg thread.

I am just automaticaly defensive now as what's it gotta do with 'em?

There's always shoplifting.

Oh yes, foraging, berries and the suchlike. Apples off the trees. Grass has to be fresh tho gagamama no pesticides.

Does this remark and its responses make any sense everyone. Surely the statement we are responding to is serious?? I shop in Aldi and Lidl all the time, and i am a single mum on Housing Benefit with little income.. And if REDCHARITYBONNY responded to me like that i would be pretty upset. Why all the smart sarcasm ??
As for you MRSRUFFALLO... are you serious ??? And what kind of large income is your DH on??? loads i guess !!

I can't discuss that maltesers, you will realise how important and organic I am

BitOfFun Fri 29-May-09 23:17:01

maltesers, it is only a joke smile

I inadvertantly stole 30 fish fingers from sainsburys today. I didn't mean to, I promise. Tho when I realised I was pretty chuffed. There, I had to get it out.

I nick apples from the hedgerow. They lasted me all winter.

There, that's better. Any other confessions to make?

GodzillasBumcheek Fri 29-May-09 23:20:14

but...but...i've been in nearly every supermarket aroound here and Lidl definately are not the cheapest by a long shot! The cheapest is a combo of Tesco and Asda (what isn't on special offer at Asda usually is in Tesco) and shop for some luxuries at Lidl/Aldi etc like Options hot choc. Or am i just strange?

GodzillasBumcheek Fri 29-May-09 23:20:38

what joke?

oh Dear God there are a lot of people having sense of humour failures on mumsnet tonight.

JessJess3908 Fri 29-May-09 23:25:01

Yes. Last week it was a sprig of rosemary from the window box of our local italian blush

GodzillasBumcheek Fri 29-May-09 23:26:37

If you had read ANY of my posts you would be able to tell that i HAVE NOT had a sense of humour failure AT ALL

<i never had a sense of humour to start with>

meltedmarsbars Fri 29-May-09 23:28:34
