    Hi everyone,

    Welcome to the fifth Grocery Challenge of 2012

    If your new month starts early feel free to join this thread, or if you're still working on your March budget, then keep on posting in the:
    April 2012 Grocery Challenge

    As always this challenge is to reduce your own grocery budget to levels that you will be pleased with, not forgetting that we always recommend that you stay inside your own comfort levels and take things gently one step at a time. Remember that this is not a competition....it's designed to take you and your grocery spending to a level you are happy with.

    If you are new to the challenge I have quoted the advice from Galtizz below which will help you get started.

    Please post into this thread for help and advice and support at any time. Good luck to everyone taking part!

    I have said this before, but for all the newbies to the challenge;

    For the first month I took a guess at the budget but I really had no idea how much I was spending.

    I found the best thing is to have a guess the first month but SAVE ALL OF YOUR RECEIPTS (and yes, that does include the ones from the local shop when you run out of milk ), then at the end of the month add them all up and have a look if you were on budget, if not, it doesn't matter because your budget was a guess. For the next month you can use the total of your receipts and take a bit off to get a realistic budget, just shave off as much as you think you can, it could be 1 a week or 20 a week.

    If you are currently spending 200 a month don't suddenly drop it to 100 - you'll never do it but if you cut 20 a month off for a few months you'll get there eventually without feeling you're missing out on anything.

    You might think you've done everything you can in the first month but someone always comes up with a new idea and, if you try it you often find you save a bit more (unless you are SarahSaver who is an expert at this and could only save more if she turned her back garden into a paddy field and lived on rice ) In the first month I thought, I'm planning meals, I couldn't possibly save any more, but then I started double cooking and freezing, and making soup instead of buying it in tins.

    I've been doing this since Feb but only saved ALL of my receipts last month, it has given me a much better idea of where it is all going. Budget for next month is 80 for 2 of us, I'll start on 30/4. I could probably save more, by eating different foods but I can afford to live on 80, I have saved a lot of money since Feb. and I don't waste food or money any more. So I'm happy with my budget.
    By request, here is Spiggles wonderful helpful post

    We all have different budgets that suit our households. The most important thing to remember is that you set yours according to your needs and finances. It can take time to get to where you want to be too so don't knock yourself out if you go over in the first few months. We are here to support each other and it is not a competition.

    I thought it might help to outline where we've come from and the top tips I've learned.

    When we started in March 2010 we had spent in excess of 600 in the previous month. This had to stop, (there's only me and him and our two beautiful black cats) something which thankfully my OH completely agreed with so I have been lucky that he has been on board from the start. He gave me his debit card voluntarily and I still keep hold of it until he needs to get something for the home. At the same time we set up a system of pocket money (pm) at 15 each per week which doesn't count towards the GC and which we can each spend as we wish with no comebacks or complaints. OH predominantly uses his pm on his beer and I ferret mine away mostly.

    The next step was to set up my own spreadsheet which is absolutely simple onto which I put all spends so that I have a continuous running total for the month and for the year. We initially set our budget at 280 per month and brought it down to 240 where it resides for most of the year it is occasionally increased to allow for extras e.g. Christmas to 260.

    The important 'tools' we found greatly helped and continue to do so now are:

    Stocktake cupboards, fridge, freezer - make lists and ensure that the older products get used up first. You'll be amazed at what you find squirrelled away and it will help with your shopping list as you'll realise that you don't actually need so much.

    Before you go shopping check staples - running out of milk, bread, butter, etc often leads to going into a shop for one thing and coming out 20 lighter. Always check these and if they'll run out tomorrow buy them the same time as getting other things.

    Always make a shopping list and stick to it - the supermarkets (sm) try every which way to get us to spend so having a list and strong resolve is the only way to beat them.

    Keep every receipt - and then note it down on your spreadsheet/spend diary so that you always know where you are.

    When tempted, ask yourself do you NEED it or just WANT it - now this advice goes with two things. Firstly, the things you see in store when shopping that APPEAR to be bargains - if you hadn't planned spending the money then its not a bargain. Secondly, the sm send us loads of vouchers for X off a spend of XX - if you had no NEED to spend XX then have you SAVED anything???

    Use my supermarket to compare prices (limited to four of the biggies) - The site may be used to actually do an online shop at whichever of the big four offers the best value or, if you have the time and sm availability, to make up lists for visiting each of the stores so that you can purchase all you need at different stores thus getting the best possible value. (I'd add, do a 'shop' virtually on this site and take the list you create on it with you, whichever one you shop at, it will help keep target prices in your head and allow you to spot bargains. MrM is not included but you can do a virtual list on their website so you know what you're going to be spending.)

    Always have a list - this is just as important when shopping online as shopping on foot.

    Use Approved Foods online (with a list!) - if you don't mind out of date things (ood) or you can search for only in date items. The only drawback is storing the goods as far as I can tell. Oh, and watch the delivery as it's done on a scaled charge for weight so keep an eye on it. You can of course do an AF order with friends, family, colleagues or like minded neighbours. Other GCers use Big Br*nds 4 Less too.

    Invest in a breadmaker - we have saved so much by making our own bread. The prices in the shops are extortionate for bread these days. There's loads of advice on this thread and others in the forum on this.

    Use the recipe lists - always posted at the front of a new thread. There are fantastic, tasty, healthy and economical recipes to use on them and there are a number of other threads on the forum such as Weezl's that will help you to eat well on a budget.

    Shop locally - the local greengrocer (or preferably market but I don't have one ) is usually cheaper as an option for fruit and veg (f&v) than the sm. Often the prices may look the same but when you look at the quantity for the same price the greengrocer will be cheaper. The same goes for the local butcher. Often you will have far more variety of meat available, advice on how to cook a particular meat can be offered and there is (for me at least) no comparison in terms of quality. We buy our huge FR eggs there and I'm yet to find an equivalent FR egg in a sm at the same or lower price. Obvioulsy if you have your own chicks/know someone who has chicks you can get them even cheaper again.

    Grow your own - it's quite simple to grow some f&v at home even if it's only in pots on the patio. There are also supportive threads on the forum for this.

    Cook your own - making meals at home from ingredients is far more economical, often tastes better than shop bought and is probably far better healthwise.

    Meal Plan - this is something that others can advise on as we don't do it. I have a tremendous capacity for eating the same food over many days but presented in slightly different form. For example, we could buy 7 worth of brisket from the butchers and eat it as pot roast for a couple of days, sliced for sarnies, sliced with a salad, chucked into a casserole or shredded up and fried as crispy beef.

    Don't waste food - either only make what you need or use any leftovers for other meals/creations or freeze it for another day.

    Withdraw the cash you want to spend - and keep it in a separate purse. This can be particularly effective as you have the money in front of you reducing rather than spending with plastic which is so easy to lose track of. Very useful when you first start out.

    Don't go to the shops to browse - this can only lead to pain and hardship!!!

    Keep posting and reading the thread - there really is no better supportive, wise and inspirational place to be! I think I saw that somebody mentioned forgetting to read/post. I get around this by using the Advanced button to post, below the window where your text is displayed you will see Additional Options. In the Thread Subscription box use the dropdown to select either instant email notification (this is what I use) or daily email notification before you submit your latest post. Then you will get an email into your inbox from which you can click to the thread to see what others are saying.

    Always remember the sm is not your friend - it wants to profit from you and take as much of your money as it can coerce out of you!

    So, there you go as a starting point. Others on here will offer tremendous advice on meal planning. And don't forget, the only silly question is the one you didn't ask!

    See you all later,

    12 Yorkshire puds I made last night. I made the TITH for three day's dinners with 1 egg.

    Thanks MunniMuncha and Florenceem.

    Can anyone vouch for either of the Toad in the Hole recipes on the front page? I've never done it before, but I have an abundance of sausages in the fridge, so it is something which will be good to have on the meal plan in the near future.

    Oh my days.....I just made muffins for the first time (I'm 42 so a bit of a late starter.....). I made Ms Lawsons jam doughnut muffins.....they are sooooo delicious. Just like a fresh cooked doughnut nommy nom nom.

    They were our pudding - had another of her recipes for dinner - macaroni cheese from her Expre$$ book. I adding chopped bacon - delicious even if I say so myself

    Went to MrT today and spent 31 of which 5 was the muffin tin and 14 on clothes for DS2 (another budget), rest on food.

    Looking forward to trying some other muffin recipes - Florenceem what have you started

    Goodness me, i spend one day in the office and not working at home and the thread flys by. Small spend today of 2 for some apples & pears. As a full time working mum my baking day is Sunday afternoon. I also make a pan of soup then. Also have a bread maker which tends to be on every other day. Great device i even use it for pizza dough etc.
    Mrs F i made yorkie puddings last Sunday afternoon & i used two eggs for 8, i have 4 left in the freezer for this sundays lunch. The next time i make them i shall use your one egg recipe. Very cheap Sunday lunch this weekend as the joint we had last week was big enough to slice up and freeze. It will make 4 meals in total. Three roast meals & one cottage pie (bulked out with a few lentils & grated veg) Best wishes to all.

    Cheers me dears.

    Tea was lovely tonight. Had beef rogan josh and rice. As I had brought plain flour with me, I also whipped up a batch of chapatis too.
    We are on the way back home now. A day early but we are fed up of the leaky toilet. We are all a little OCD so the thought of stepping out of a shower onto a murky wet floor is a bit I miss my bath.

    We have had 2 sunny days though so can't complain that much.

    Have a nice evening all.

    Ok, so last night DH made a lovely curry with leftover chicken and told me he'd left enough meat for another meal tonight. So today I lift the foil off the plate to find . . . a chicken breast . . . no carcass. Where does he think that yummy stock comes from!

    But on a happier note I made some delicious banana and chocolate muffins. Those Jam donut muffins sound amazing Coxy, I'm going to have to find that recipe! Update: found it! Definitely making those tomorrow, thanks for that!

    These are from Nigellas Domestic Goddess book:

    125ml milk
    85ml veg oil plus more for greasing
    1 large egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    200g S.R. flour
    100g caster sugar
    12 teaspoons strawberry jam
    100g unsalted butter
    150 granulated sugar
    1 incredibly well-greased or silicon mini muffin pan

    Preheat oven to 190C/Gas 5

    Beat together the milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Stir this into the flour and caster sugar to combine (just): the lumps don't matter and if you overbeat the muffins will be tough.

    Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan so that it's just under a third full. Add a dollop of jam - about the size of a fat broad bean - then top with more muffin mix.

    Cook for 20 mins until the tops feel springy.

    Melt the butter and lay the sugar out in a wide, shallow bowl. When the muffins are ready, carefully lift out of the pan, dip them in butter and roll in the granulated sugar.

    Eat warm.

    Mine is a 'normal' sized muffin pan, so the mixture made 9 full size and 3 half sized muffins. So delicious, but only for treats!!

    Evening all.

    2 NSDs in a row
    However, DD2 brought me some eggs home and I haven't paid her yet

    Starting to get the hang of this using stuff up business. Made quorn spag bol for tea. I only used half a packet of frozen mince, 2 onions, a jar of Ragu pasta sauce which had just gone past its BB date, and 2 carrots diced, with half a pack of spaghetti for the 4 of us (all adults) There was still a portion of sauce left over for lunch tomorrow. Thanks Florenceem for reminding me about portion sizes

    I had a bit of a baking session yesterday. I made 24 plain buns - smaller than muffins, and put a small dollop of water icing on the top and some 100's and 1000's on 12, and some jelly orange/lemon half moon shapes on the other 12. I also made 3 plain cakes - jam through one of them to take to church, butter icing on another for us, and the last one for the freezer! Then I made a batch of cheese scones from the BE-RO recipe book (minus mustard as we don't like it) Haven't bought any cake this month so far... Trouble is when I bake cakes myself they seem to disappear too quickly

    When I make Yorkshire Puds on a Sunday, I have a roasting tin and heat a small amount of oil in a very hot oven (220-230C) while I mix the following.
    I use a measuring cup.
    1 cup plain flour
    Pinch salt
    2 large free range eggs
    1 cup milk
    1 cup cold water

    Put everything except water into a large bowl, beat well then add enough water to make a coating batter ( so that a spoon dipped into the mix comes out with a coating on it rather than a thick spoonful)

    Pour into the now very hot tin/oil - it should sizzle as you pour it in, and cook for about 30 minutes. If your tin has sides of at least an inch - sorry 2.5cm (I still think in 'old money') your puds will rise better. We then cut it into 8 and have one piece with Sunday dinner and the other piece each on Monday with Left over Sunday dinner.

    I didn't

    I have a wee stash of chocolate ambrosia custards which were glitching at 11p a year ago.

    I don't think I've ever made it from scratch. I love this stuff though so would love to hear how some folk on here make it

Hot, its chocolate custard and cold, its blancmange.... also delish with banana and a dash of rum stirred in (Carribean custard - yeeah maaan!)

    The same applies for pink custard (That used to come with chocolate concrete for pudding at school) Its just hot pink blancmange mix before its cooled and set!

    Yum - have made myself hungry just thinking about it!

    Love the idea of pink custard. I'm sure we had that at infant school with chocolate shortbread. We had green minty custard too if memory serves me right?!

    I think that you can make up blancmange with a jelly mix for a different type of dessert. Never tried it but read it on the OS thread a couple of years ago.

    I'm sitting here procrastinating - its raining out there and I need to pop into the village for some fruit and veg. I don't drive and I don't much fancy getting soaked.




    Fozziebeartoo - Enjoy your lovely newly decorated room. What colour have you gone for - if thats not too noisy - but please be careful putting those curtains up. After too many mishaps DH has now banned me from climbing on chairs and ladders to put things up or get things from the back of cupboards. And I'd hate to hear that you've injured yourself.

    Craig - What about grown up cordial? I have a recipe for fruit vodka. I've only made it with blackberries at the moment but I fully intend to go through all the summer fruits as they come into season. I'll post the recipe if you're interested.

    Wishing everyone a lovely afternoon.

    I use my ancient Kenwood hand mixer to make my Yorkshire batter.
    Makes 12.
    Cost approx - 24p.
    6ozs plain flour.
    1 egg.
    6 - 8 fl ozs milk/water mix.

    Whisk all together - I add in freshly ground black pepper.
    Leave to stand about 1 hour.
    Put tiny knob of lard in each muffin tin space - heat in 220c oven. As quickly as possible divide batter between the 12 spaces. Cook for about 20 minutes.

    I noticed that bought Yorkshires contain sugar and salt. Much better and a lot cheaper to make your own - takes so little time. I used to make 24 Yorkshires at dinnertime - put 10 - 12 that were not on dinner plates - on server in middle of table. Never any left!

My Nan used to let us have the extras for pudding with jam, but only if we have eaten all our dinner.

    Can anyone vouch for either of the Toad in the Hole recipes on the front page? I've never done it before, but I have an abundance of sausages in the fridge, so it is something which will be good to have on the meal plan in the near future.
    Originally posted by NickJW
    NickJW Both will be fine. Toad in the Hole is very forgiving as a recipe. The important things to remember are to make sure the fat in the pan is very hot before you pour the batter mix in and if you are using fat sausages, part cook them because they take a little longer than the batter (chipolatas take about the same). I use oil or lard or solid dripping from a roast - they all work.

    I can vouch for many of the batter recipes others have been posting as sometimes I use 1 egg and sometimes more. I never measure except by spoon (flour), palm of the hand for a pinch of salt and by eye and texture once the milk starts to mix in. I generally add only a dribble of milk to the beaten egg and then the flour and salt and mix to a thick paste (less likely to be lumpy) and then dilute it down gradually with milk. I would use 2 medium eggs with 4 TBSP plain flour or 1 large egg with SR flour if I'm short of eggs. Let it sit around for at least half an hour (any lumps will be obvious and it works better)

    When I make YP with roast beef, I cook it in a slab in the roasting tin under the beef on a rack - so the meat juices flavour the YP. They are v popular and never any leftovers.

    I like the mini TITH idea - I heard of someone doing individual ones for their kids in muffin tins with half a chipolata in each (twisted to make cocktail sausages).

    My friend adds a little dry stuffing mix to the batter mix to fill people up more too.

    The eggs are the real rising ingredient, if you beat the mix it will rise more than stirring the mix because of the extra air (SR flour is a little cheat if they don't always rise for you)
