Yesterday I went out for my afternoon walk, I had to go into Asda to get some more milk and as I went in the door crates were being moved to the front of the store.
Taking a closer look it was items which had damaged packaging and some ends of lines.
I got some very good bargains.
Walkers six packs of Crisps, 20p, Snack a Jacks 15p.
Self Raising Flour 26p
Caster Sugar 25p
Non Stick Foil 25p
I confess I have never purchased a 'dented' tin before, but I have read up on what is safe and what's not.
Lovely Ambrosia Custard for 10p.
Some more 10p tins.
I also spotted these Olay Ladies Shaving Foam for 50p, my Husband will happily use them.
Chicken Breasts 50p a pack
10 metre rolls or wrapping paper for 25p each.
These were £2.50 I got two of these, I was going to keep them for the gift drawer, but I expect I will use them myself.
One thing I have never really bought before for the simple reason they are expensive and also I do my own Indoor Bulb Planters, I always do Hyacinth's, I have several pots all at different stages, the idea being when one has finished another will be starting. But I saw these last two on the shelf.
Would have cost £14, I didn't mind paying £3 , so I have planted them up, and at least I can use the pots and plant them up again next year also.
Look what I spotted today.
Easter is appearing already.
So back to the new challenge for the year, I have given myself a grocery budget of £120 a month but I really want to get it down to £100. This will include everyday toiletries and cleaning products.
Am I mad ? Can I really do it?
What do you think?
I think it is possible,as you can see how well I do on the yellow stickers.
I am going to give it a go, and I also use shopping apps and coupons.
I also have cupboards crammed full from all the bargains I regularly pick up and they are all in date, I never waste anything.
So it's the 1st of the month, the above shop will not count for the challenge as it was purchased yesterday.
I did make a few purchases today.
Bramley Apples 9p
Chopped Tomatoes 10p a tin - 6 tins. 60p
I shall be keeping note of any purchases.
Total spend so far £4.11
I will be doing a store cupboard check and tidy up over the next few days so you can see what I already have and also a fridge/freezer inventory.
