On the face of it, it doesn't look like I'm keeping my spending down. However, under normal circumstances (not watching the pennies in other words), we usually spend around £60 or £70 on a weekly shop, so we're actually doing pretty well. I'm sure we could do even better though. At the end of October I'll take stock of things and see how I can cut down even more.
Thanks for the comments on the last post. Sue in Suffolk - I've tried other brands, including shop's own, too but always come back to the Nescafe ones, I really like them the best. I have the Unsweetened ones - they still contain glucose but are much less sweet. And yes it does make sense to stock up on things we regularly buy when they're on a good offer.
