    How to beat the bagged vegetables rip-off.

    How to beat the bagged vegetables rip off, and why special offers are misleading.

    Asda's decision to stop selling loose fruit and vegetables is the latest blow to supermarket bargain-hunters, but all is not lost. If you know the tricks to get decent bargains, then you can beat the supermarkets at their own game and save a fortune.

    Look at the ten tricks to saving from AOL Money HERE




    Most of us know that the marketing people in the big supermarkets will try any trick they can to get the maximum amount of money out of our wallets and purses, but if we are "savvy" shoppers and we don't just run around the supermarket as quickly as possible then they can be beaten at their own games.

    This "hurry-hurry" world that we live in makes us easy targets for the marketeers but if we just slow down a bit and watch what we are doing while shopping we can see through the many tricks that these people throw at us.

    There is no doubt that we should all take more time to get through the day successfully, but that is the way it is.

    Those marketing people depend on us not looking too closely at what they do.

    Yes, they spend many thousands of hours working out how to fiddle us but we don't spend half of the time watching out for what we do so that we are aware of what they are up to..

    That job is laid out for the government watchdogs to do, but we all know how ineffectual they can be.

    Most of it is quite simply fraud and if we try to defraud anybody we will pay for the offence in the courts.

    How they get away with much of what they do surprises me no end.

    I guess it is just a case of "those and such as those" Angie.
