    Hi everyone,

    Welcome to the seventh 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:
    June 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,

    Hello all

    Well, this month has been an unmitigated disaster and the spends continue!

    8.13 in a mixture of corner shops and M+S. I've been out all weekend and have been eating naughty things like pre-packed sandwiches and drinking diet coke on the go!

    Then did an online shop with Mr W which is coming on Tuesday. My share comes to 40. I know that it will be all used in August but to be honest, I'm so fed up this month and am prepared to write it off and start August with a clean slate!

    Tonight it's a cheap and easy meal - pasta with pesto, pine nuts, feta cheese and sundried tomatoes (all in stock).

    Will need to spend money tomorrow though - it just feels as though money is slipping through my fingers.........

    Our current favourite comfort food type thing, is iced biscuits. We use value digestives, and then put icing on it and cover it with sprinkles/whatever is in the cake decorating box! We also do the same, but with melted chocolate. Nom nom!!

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry been a bit manic the last few days. I was bitten on my ankle on Wednesday evening (in the garden, NOT by DH) and it became infected with swelling travelling up my leg, so painful I cannot tell you. Managed to get a GP appointment on Friday afternoon and he has prescribed really powerful ABs which have now kicked in. This of course didn't stop me spending last night at an Adam Ant gig and moshing away on one leg. Anyhoo, I digress.....

    In GC news.....I have gone over by 20 odd but am generally pleased with how July has gone. We are away for 2 weeks in August so my budget is going to be 250 as holiday food is from another budget.

    After a mahoosive thunder and lightening storm this afternoon I ventured (hobbled) out to MrT (currently open until midnight during the olympics) and bought some food from August's budget. Really thought there would be some decent whoopsies but nada, niente, nowt.

    Will see you all on the August thread. TTFN.

    Spent 3 in 1 shop and 5.40 in Mr S this week. I made some of the banana ice cream (the one that just uses frozen bananas), which was delicious and saved 5 bananas from going in the green waste bin, unfortunately I think I've broken my food processor while trying to blend the bananas, so it could turn out to be the most expensive ice cream I've ever had, lol, hopefully it will be something that can be fixed by OH!

    Hope it gets fixed

    Good morning all,

    sorry i haven't been about but the start of the summer hols have been extremely hectic what with DH (a teacher) and all the kiddies being off all at once. It has taken me a bit to adapt!

    GC has gone ok though. Going to declare 386.91 which is under budget and so very pleased with myself (for once!) but spending elsewhere has not been so good so going to have to reign that in.

    Off to join August xxxxx
    Finally getting my life on track. Onwards and upwards.

    Oh no, Coxy! Hope the ABs sort it out quickly for you.

    Today may not be the gc nsd I had planned for, we'll see. It kind of depends how quickly the car is fixed. The guy doing it reckoned around 190!!!

    Having muffin pizzas for lunch to use up three muffins we have lo from an egg muffin lunch the other day. DS had them at school, and liked them, so I thought I'd do them as a change. No idea what dinner will be, as it's at a friend's house. I'm going to look in the freezer and see what we can take for pudding, as much to clear space as to be sociable!!

    I'm the only one who is dressed at the moment - dd only woke up at half 10! (She's not a teenager - she's 7!) Still, it's the hols, so there's no rush to do anything.

    Off to make lunch, and watch a film with the children before we go out for a wander and some fresh air.

    Have a great frugaltastic day everyone!

    PG x


    Car just been brought back, 191.20! That smarts, but it sailed through last year, so I suspected something, and I have more than that in the car account, so that's good. Just have to hope I can still manage the aa and insurance now!

    In a moment of weakness last night, myself and Hubs polished off the end of the block of cheese with some crackers and port. Was yummy, but have been left with jam sandwiches for lunch today and may have to get some cheese or ham for tomorrow as I don't think sweet sambos two days in a row would go down terribly well. I'll happily eat egg mayo (have loads of eggs in) but himself wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. Thwarted again!

    HELLLOOO!!!
    I have not been on here for well over a week and the amount of posts i had to read to catch up was crazy!!
    Went into hospital on 15th to be induced but i had apparently already started so they let me carry on on my own... After 19 long hours my beautiful son was born and as you can imagine i have been kept busy by my lil man!! I have updated my sig for spends, i still have one week left in july but its looking promising. Just wondering if i can cut the budget even lower next month.. :-)

    Well, it has taken ages to catch up. I went on holiday for a week and wow - so many posts to catch up on!

    I am declaring this month at 306.10 - only just over my target, so I'm not too worried about it.
    See you on the August thread.

    Nigerian red kidney bean stew with a peanut sauce

    I didn't follow the recipe from Madhur Jaffrey exactly, as she used dried kidney beans and I used cans, plus her recipe is for 4-6 servings. The recipe below is what I used and it served me and OH plus leftovers for lunch, so double it will serve 5 easily. Served with a side salad, mint & onion raita and HM bread but she also recommends rice and cooked greens with it. Think it would freeze well and is also nice for lunch the next day!

    1 1/2 cans red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1 big clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 yellow pepper you're supposed to use green but didn't have one
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    250ml passata
    juice of half a lemon
    1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
    Couple of big handfuls frozen sweetcorn
    Soy sauce to taste

    Heat some vegetable oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion, pepper and garlic. Add the passata once softened, and a little bit of water to thin down. Add the spices. Let cook for 10 minutes, then add the sweetcorn and kidney beans and cook for another 5 minutes until warmed through. Mix the peanut butter with a couple of spoonfuls of water in a cup or bowl until thinned, then add to the tomato mix and stir through. Add the lemon juice, a few dashes of soy sauce to taste, then serve. I cut up some coriander on the top to garnish, too.

    Mint and onion raita

    Season a few tablespoons of Greek yoghurt with salt and pepper, add finely chopped fresh mint to taste (I used three big leaves) and a quarter of a small onion, very finely chopped.

    Didn't take a picture today sadly!! We munched our way through it far too fast

    Thanks Bluegreen, that's one to file away into my 'to try' file!!

    NSD today - didn't need anything, so didn't go shopping! Feel like I should do this more often... (Der!!) I mean, how hard can it be?!

    Went to friend's house for dinner. She provided the dinner, I did pudding. Cue one slightly ood angel delight, some milk that's bb today and some choc covered biscuit drops. Lush! I also had to do the sweets and popcorn for the film we watched, so cue the lo sweets and popcorm from a school movie day! Nice!

    Hoping tomorrow will be as cheap a day as this (except for the car, of course! Thank goodness the MOT is only once a year!). Could do with a few nsds under my belt, as I haven't updated my sig yet, and I know it's prob quite bad.

    Oops overspend on first grocery challenge!
    Perhaps I was a little ambitious. I aimed to reduce my 300 monthly spend to 150. That's for me and DD and DS. I'm declaring I came in at 259.11. Way over target!

    Still I've shaved 40 off my grocery bill and have decided to just try and shave off 20 each month.

    Top tips picked up:

    Cheap recipes from this site and others on internet - red lentil pate (yum yum) salmon pasta and HM pizza. All went down well.

    Veg soup made out of anything left over in the fridge - threw mild curry powder in to give it a lift - tasty.

    Cutting expensive washing powder to make it go further - Equal amounts of ariel and any no frills brand and a bag of soda cystals.

    Menu planning/stock taking

    Lessons learned:

    Dont go shopping and forget that you've left all the fresh juice in the car boot when it's 30 degrees outside! Discovered it a few days later Actually i threw the kids juice out and bought new for them but with mine I took the risk, chilled it and drank it and still here to tell the tale. (Checked it smelt and tasted ok obviously!)

    August:

    New grocery challenge will be a more realistic 240. Will try shopping in Mr L.

    August will be a month of picnics so any picnic food ideas and recipes gratefully received.

    I'm not sure how much we spent on food in the end as due to a few other things and me miscalculating for how long we needed food for I've got lost lol. Roll on the 10th when I can start again.

    I have however managed to try and stick to a budget and I've managed to do Rubber Chicken for the first time ever. Roast chicken on Sunday, Garlic Chicken pasta yesterday and chicken soup today (left it in the slow cooker over night, was a bit nervous as have never used the carcass before but it's worked and OH said it's really tasty!!)

    Feel a bit bad

    Mr W accidently came to deliver my food yesterday because they got my day wrong. They called me at work to say that they were outside my house, but neither I nor my housemate were in. They took it back to the store and came to deliver it today because my housemate is off.

    Anyway - my housemate called me to ask me why I had ordered so much (I hadn't). Turns out that they doubled up all the meat and dairy products. The veg and storecupboard items were okay but they delivered:

    4 packs of chicken thighs instead of 2
    4 packs of bacon lardons instead of 2
    2 pork joints instead of 1
    2 packs of stewing beef instead of 1
    2 packs of frying steak instead of 1
    2 packs of diced turkey instead of 1
    4 packs of kings prawns instead of 2
    4 packs of pro-biotic yoghurts instead of 2
    2 4 pints of milk instead of 1
    2 moussakas instead of 1
    6 ready meals (for lunches) instead of 3

    Called up customer services to find out how much I was charged and it's the right amount. Explained to them what happened and they apologized for the inconvenice - asked them if they wanted to collect and they said that it's okay, I can keep it.

    Do feel guilty though - they must have taken a big loss on this mistake! But oh well - I'll be sorted though August at least!!!

    That is fantastic Nick. Don't feel guilty they throw out thousands of pounds worth of food a day and still make a profit. Enjoy it, I think it will taste even nicer knowing it is free.
