    In the same week, I saw white seedless grapes from India, South Africa, and Argentina. The packages on the shelf with the same price can come from any country at any time.

    I just found that so interesting.

    As for general browsing, you'll find this Budgens to be pretty average. Not bad, but not great. The prices are actually on par with Sainsbury's and Tesco, I would say.

    This store is going rapidly downhill and is starting to look pretty shabby. The floor tiles are cracked and the whole place feels like it needs a really good clean. They better watch out as a shiny new Sainsbury's has just opened up opposite the university.

    Budgens is a good emergency store, but it's all a little pricy compared to the other supermarkets.… Read more

    I cannot recall how many times I've left the house in the morning and thought - "oh damn! I've left my breakfast bar on the kitchen counter" or "how in the world did I forget to pack my fruit selection" and most commonly "what possessed me to leave the bouquet of flowers for Rachel's birthday in the stairs?!". The solution to impending memory loss? Budgens!

    Budgens stores just about everything you'd need on a Monday morning when nothing is going right in your world. From magazines to fresh baguettes, dog food to kitchen utensils - it's the perfect minature version of your ideal 'life-store'!

    You'll catch me in there every Monday morning, running over from the station - 10 minutes late for my lecture, when I've realised that in the morning rush, I've grabbed my night-club clutch instead of my 'sophisticted, 3rd-year degree student bag'! Off to Budgens for a notepad, pen and of course, a cinammon roll before I stroll in 20 minutes late to James Joyce's, Ulysses...
