I am not our esteemed PM who can somehow stretch a budget of RM500 for a year's worth of groceries (you know he mentioned that a research was done that a household can survive with RM41.60 per month).
My household earns more than RM3,000 than the ones our esteemed PM is talking about but I am still finding ways to cut cost. Though any savings would probably just go towards my running gears like the ASICS shoes I bought. *cough cough* Talk about getting my priorities straight. HAHAHA
Anyway, I rarely buy bananas at retail price now. I eat them daily, more so on weekends before and after a long run and I always try to get these "reduce to clear" ones. As you can see, the bananas are still good.
By the way, do eat bananas with dark patches on them. There is nothing wrong with them, and according to research, a full ripe banana with dark patches on yellow skin produces a substance called TNF (tumor necrosis factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. The riper the bananas are, the better its anti-cancer properties are.
I get to buy bananas I want (without waiting for them to ripe at home) and at a good bargain too! WIN WIN! ^^
The three tubs of G Series thing is actually powder form Gatorade, Ah Hua. ^^ It's expiring in a month's or a couple of month's time so to me, they are still good.
It's good that there are retailers that clear away their expiring items before it is expired and not dump expired items on unsuspecting customers.
That said, we received some items in the Chinese New Year hampers in February that were already expired! Not a month or two! But almost 6 months! Terrible! :(
