It's All Spend, Spend, Spend ...


After yesterday's post it seems like it's all spend, spend, spend here at the moment.

I called to Asda for this weeks milk yesterday, before I left Alan asked me to get him some salted peanuts, he is a salted peanut addict, this could be going to cost me quite a lot of our budget this year.

Anyway soft fool that I am I also treated him to two Hot Cross Loaves, well at two for £1 it would have been daft not too, and I think you get more for your money than the little packs of six Hot Cross Buns that were also in the offer.

One for now and one in the freezer, I couldn't have made them for that price.


A total of £4.39 spent.



Leaving £351.58 in The Purse.



Edited to add ...  after tipping the peanuts into his 'nut jar' I realised I had mistakenly picked up the non-salted variety ... so I still need to get him some salted nuts ... drat!!

  2. Maybe if you added a little oil to them, the salt would stick. Try it with just a few to see.

  3. Having lived overseas for many years I will confess to coveting your purse!

    Not to mention that the bread looks amazing. Where we live it is very hard to find good bread, and it is expensive. There is one store we go to, but you have to watch the date. As far as I can tell they only bake bread when the shop opens at 8 so there is no point going until lunch time. It is quite perplexing to me!

    I can understand being disappointed about the salt, it is so easy to forget little things like that.

  4. Spray with a bit of oil and sprinkle with salt. See if he notices that they're 'different'!
    Haha just noticed that Kim has suggested the same. So how would you use peanuts? Could you try making peanut butter?

    1. He's already eaten lots of them, but I'll have a go with my spray oil and a sprinkle of salt and see if that works with the ones that are left. I really don't like homemade peanut butter, funny I know but I prefer even the cheapest bought one to homemade!

    2. Well there you are...I bet the unsalted ones are cheaper, as well as being healthier! You can wean him off the salted ones. He obviouly finds them palatable.

  5. Now here's a strange thing, your blog and some others haven't updated themselves on my reading list. I've tried undoing the update bit and starting again, but no, still says yesterdays post is your latest. Very odd

  8. Well I definitely should not have read your blog when I was hungry!!! The bread looks wonderful. I did have a chuckle about
    the peanuts though. I'm enjoying your Challenging Year - and trying to be thriftier myself. Jean/Winnipeg
