    I can't find my receipt from morrisons but I spent £8 something so will round it up to £9. Mostly reduced things. Bananas, massive bag reduced grapes, reduced chicken drumsticks, onion rings, chips, dog food and a few other bits.

  • Hmm, only £83.95 left of my budget this month and was hoping to make it to 6th December before starting a new month. Will have to be extremely frugal if I'm going to achieve that :) Making vegetable cottage pie for tea as I feel the need for some nice comforting food in this cold weather.

  • I presume shoes is not the name of the store you work for lol.
    any hints you may be able to give us as to the actual name? :)

    A spend of £16 today in Mr S. I was pleased to get some good ys meat as I never usually shop at the right time to take advantage of the reductions. Got organic pork mince, a large turkey breast (will feed 3 of us) and a hot salmon salad for DH for his tea tonight.

    I never got chance to make the soups I was planning to make today as I managed to get an appointment to get my teeth whitened this afternoon. I got a great deal on Group on but it was either use it today or lose it:eek: I hadn't realised that I would have to eat a white diet for 48 hours afterwards so needed to buy some white pasta sauce, bottled water and rice crispies to supplement the chicken, cheese, pasta and potatoes I have already got.

    The good news is I found out I can eat most supermarket own brand cornflakes, rice crispies, frosted flakes and chocolate pops on a GF diet so that will save me a few pounds on the specialist stuff I have been buying:D

    I'm hungry now but have to wait a couple more hours before I can eat but I can have a glass of wine:rotfl:
