Yellow Sticker Shopping

Welcome to my new follower Brenda.

Another price rise I spotted this week was that  milk has gone up, a few pennies here and there all add up.

Today I did a my usual  yellow sticker shop.

I picked up a few regular priced items, my total shop came to £18.33.

All these yellow stickers came to £13.76.

 1kg of mince £1.45, bargain!

I had a voucher for some free biscuits as well, this was because it was my birthday this week.

Also from Asda this week I had some coupons for £1.00 off soup, and they were on offer for £1.00 so all these were free.

One pack of the mince has been divided into two and put in the freezer and I have also divided the big pack of sausages into three lots and that has also gone in the freezer.

Tonight we had one of the Steak Pies for tea and Jack is using the Panettone later to make a pudding which we will have with the clotted cream. We always have a treat at the weekend.

I will be making Chilli with the mince.

So the first meals of next week  will be Jacket Potato, Chilli and Salad.
Chilli and Rice.
Sausages, Mash, Cauliflower.

We have plenty in the cupboards as we don't seem to be using that much as the fresh shopping once a week keeps us going.

Next year I am definitely up for a challenge and it's going to be a hard one, but I am confident I can do it.

Anyone got any challenges lined up for the new year?
