    Nipped into Asda when I picked DD1 up from work this evening and just got cheese and country life on the 3 for £5 offer, and a tub of philly.

    Will be going to Sainsbugs tomorrow as it is near where my car is going in for a check so I will have an hour to kill, though I might also go to Aldi when I get it back. There is not much I really need but I don't get to that side of town very often so I have to have a look, don't I.:rotfl:

    See you all tomorrow.
  • Bought a bit of meat today - £2.50 Spent £8 in asda on 2 x £2 pizzas, reduced bread and some juice. None of it reallllly urgent so could have saved £10 really.

  • Hello all!
    I'be been missing in action for a while due to getting married last weekend and generally having a mad week this week but I am now officially back on track!
    Found the receipt from a dsah to Mr Ts on Monday (£39) and I've also bought milk and mushrooms since so that's an extra £1.80 to add onto the total which should now be £90.80 (i'll update the sig in a sec).

    I have a shopping list for tomorrow - I thought we didn't need much but it seems to grow exponentially everytime I look at it!

    This week's food will be...
    Sat - pizzas from freezer (easy tea)
    Sun - chicken parcel (glamorgan sausages for me), peas, parsnips, roast potatoes, brocolli, and gravy
    Mon - curry from freezer for OH, 5 bean chilli for me
    Tues - 5 bean chilli left overs for both of us
    Weds - spag bol (from freezer) for OH, quorn meatballs and spag for me
    Thurs -sausages and mash in a giant yorkshire pudding for both of us
    Fri - haven't good a clue - Friday is usually lazy day tea!

    Hope everyone is doing ok - will update the sig with tomorrow's shopping then...
  • RachelMK congrats on the wedding
