Would you use this site,
www.approvedfood.co.uk
Ok it was a silly question as it unlikely you would so I will rephrase it, would your other half use this site assuming she knew about it.?
@shutter,
I Think the crisps might be cheaper here.

There are some great bargains to be had Shocked
Much of the website doesn't work and looks amateurish plus by the time you've factored in delivery costs and three days wait is it worth it?
No, I wouldn't use it.

This site has been all over the media in the past weeks. it's a good idea that may help those on low incomes but you have to remember the food is all past its best date. I guess if you buy their items and use them speedily you will find it beneficial.
Looking at the site I noticed there is also a £5.99 delivery charge which would have to be taken into account.
Not for me but I'm sure it could be good for some.
