and the 3rd....

Went shopping this morning, stuck to my list apart from a pack of wraps that OH decided he wanted for his lunch (they were reduced though).  I think one of the things that's helping me not to buy stuff we don't actually need, is that by sticking rigidly to the list, I don't go down any aisles which don't have stuff we need.....I just look for the items on my list and don't bother looking at anything else.  Spent £41, making a total of £113 for three shops.  

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.


  1. Our youngest left home this week and shopped my pantry before he left.

    So now, I have to discover how to shop for two people and a dog. Wish me luck.

  2. Sounds like you are doing really well. Keep it up hun x

  3. How are you doing with retired time? And your pup?
