    what's £10 more going to do?? 
    If you wanna be totally reckless, two bottles of cheapo wine from Lidl!?!  :wink: :smiley:

    Seriously though, if you shop in Lidl's or indeed buy Sainsbury's own brand, £4.41 for example, will buy you milk, bread, butter and 12 eggs. Also shopping at markets for meat, fruit and veg helps. Depends on what and how you spend that extra tenner....
