I went to Tesco to get Ginger some tuna and ended up buying a bit more than that ... like you do.
We needed some more tea bags for Alan, I was weighing out how many you got for 2oz ready for rations and noticed that I needed to put the last foil packet into the tea canister. Oh, and by the way you get 21 tea bags for your 2oz :-)
The rest of the shopping was me getting ready for rationing. The Camp coffee was too hard to resist, I do want to give it a go, although I was sad to find it's no longer in the iconic glass bottle ... drat!!
Surprisingly it was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be to find a bag of wholemeal flour that wasn't strong bread flour, but I managed in the end. We'll have to 'buy' the sultanas with some of our points, but the oats as far as I have found weren't rationed at all.
I can't find the receipt but checking on mysupermarket.com these are the prices I paid.
Left in The Purse £306.09
When I got home from Tesco I found an Amazon parcel through the letterbox ... oooh cue lots of excitement :-)
It was this book that I had decided to treat myself to. It cost me £10.41 so that's been duly listed on the relevant financial page of my diary. More non-essential spending ...
... but totally worth it.
Lots of meals with a budget of just £1 per day, itemised menus and shopping plans ... what's not to love. I'm off to have a read, I may be some time!!
Edited to add ... Jane's blog and lots of the recipes from the book and similar meal plans are on her blog. The link is on my sidebar, it's called Eat Not Spend.
