Bulk buying our fruit snacks

We have devoured four boxes of mandarins in three weeks...and I came home with two more boxes (18kg) tonight.

Mandarins have been so cheap the last couple of weeks - these two boxes cost us a total of $24. Of course the real cost of all these wonderful, delicious mandarins needs to take into account our increased grocery bill because the flip side is we've been plowing through the bum tickets.

We encourage the kids to snack on fruit, and they really go with that advice when grapes, bananas and mandarins are in season.

Buying our fruit by the box means we don't have to put locks on the fridge - they can eat as much as they like.

We have a mate who goes to the Brisbane markets for local restaurants and businesses, and he picks us up a box or two of whatever we need, fresh, at fantastic prices. Some weeks its potatoes, some weeks apples, this week mandarins :)

Hit up your local green grocer for a great price on a box of fruit. Don't think you'll eat your way through a whole box? Go halves with a friend. Or thirds with two friends. You'll get a heap of fruit, cheap.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
