    I've noticed prices going up for regular shopping in the last two months.Things like Ryvita have suddenly shot up by 25p and so have the own brand version. And we had slipped into buying crisps at 2x6 for £3. Suddenly £1.70 for 6
    Save £12k in 2022 - #14 £9,500 £11,036.47 (116.17%) at end of October OS Grocery Challenge 2022 spent £2,696.48/£3,000 annual (not incl £500 contingency) - try to keep it really low for December so we don't break into the contingency 89.88% so still significantly over spent for this stage of this year.
