We went to the cinema on Friday to watch Darkest Hour (highly recommended by the way), and on the way back we called to Tesco for fuel. While we were there we were also posting a letter and as we were at the door of the store we decided to nip in and pick up a couple of bottles of sparkling water. We are slowly but surely weaning ourselves off this as even though it's cheap it's daft to be buying bottled water ...even if it does have bubbles ... when the water from our taps is perfectly good to drink and totally free!!
Anyway luckily there were only 2 bottles left on the pallet so we nabbed them and then had a bit of a peruse of the other shelves.
As you can see from the top photo and this receipt, we managed to get ourselves a few yellow stickered bargains. A total of £12.23 worth of shopping for just £6.76.
The bread rolls we had when we got home for supper, as we had gone out without having any tea. Served with Violife cheese and salad for me and ham, cheese and salad for Alan. The cereals, which both have long dates but were just in damaged boxes, have been stashed in the cupboard for when Alan's current supply of wheat biscuits runs out. The cabbage and veggies will be used half with Sunday lunch and the leftovers added to the next pot of soup we make, and the strawberries are a treat for tonight with yogurt and icecream.
Oh, and the little wedge of Stilton perched on top of the wheat biscuits pack has been partly crumbled into Alan's final portion of this weeks broccoli soup, and the rest is to be had tonight with crackers as a tasty Sunday supper. We tend not to eat a proper tea on a Sunday if we have had a good Sunday lunch.
While we were there I also picked up a copy of the latest Tesco magazine, purely because it was free ... and of course it could also be used as wrapping paper for a foodies friend's present ;-)
So we spent £6.76, leaving us with £355.97 in The Purse.
Which is an average of £7.12 a week to spend for the rest of the year ... or £1.02 a day.
So our averages have actually gone up thanks to the first two weeks of January being such low spend weeks.
Currently doing a little happy dance :-)
