So there it is £100 for groceries for the month.

This is less than half of my usual spend, but then I am a bit of a squirrel, my freezer is full so I have a good start I will rotate the stock and just keep it topped up.

I think we have a good chance of succeeding with all the bargains we get.

Today we have had the free soup for lunch with the coupons I used the other day.

The postman has just been with this...



Some nice skincare freebies and some fabric softener.

Every little helps, so a good start.

  1. I am keeping a detailed spread sheet of my spending, last week was over £200 and £77 was on food, that did include enough muesli ingredients for over a month and stocking the baking and preserving cupboards. This week will stand at the £26 mark as I will not be shopping for at least 8 days. It can be an eye opener when it is there in black and white. I did buy a great many pots and troughs for the garden as they were half price. I hope to get my food spend down to an average of £25 weekly max and expect it to go lower.

    1. Gosh that was a lot , I guess sometimes we all have weeks like this, I use to have a big spend and then hardly anything for a few weeks, but I have to take control now and save as much as possible.

  2. I'll be watching closely as I'm sure you'll do great. Our income has suddenly taken a massive drop so I need to watch every penny from now on. Well done on your freebies. It's your recipe pulled pork for dinner in our house tomorrow. There are extra mouths to feed and it stretches a long way. X

  4. Following this project with interest. Sadly, living in the middle of nowhere our prices are all at a premium, but I do what I can to reduce the bills. I used to be a "couponer" when I lived abroad, it was quite the challenge! Good luck for the challenge!

    1. Thankyou Cheryl, every little bit does help, as if it is going to be a really cold winter like they predict we will all be spending more money of fuel and then Christmas is coming. x
