March Challenge - Day 10







Today I did some shopping, some fresh things were needed.

We went to Lidl for a change.



 Some meat and cheese.





Pork for Sunday Roast, some bacon, a chicken which I cooked up for tonight's curry.





Veg & salad.





Some fruit, juice , rice and tomato puree.



Bread, milk & pappadums.




Total spend - £27.00

March spend so far - £46.30


That has pushed up the figures, I won't be buying much next week.



Tonight's meal was a thai green curry, made using some of the chicken, some peppers, onions , curry paste and coconut milk from the stores.





I spotted this beautiful "Bullfinches" clock in Lidl as well, it was only £3.99.

I put it in the trolley and was going to put it back, and then my husband insisted it was nice and if I wanted it to have it as it wouldn't break the bank so it came home with us.

    1. We won't go there often as we have to travel 10 mins to get there, the other shops are only a few minutes away.

  3. Love the clock. I don't go to Lidl very often now as it's the other end of town. When I was at uni it was en route home so I used it quite a bit.

  4. I like Lidl a lot but our nearest one's quite a trek - about 15 miles away. I love that clock - bargain! I wonder if Lidl do home delivery?

  5. the clock is pretty. I have something similar in my kitchen, with flowers on it. It wasn't such a bargain, but was still a good price from Dunelm.
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  6. I don't shop Lidl as it is out of my path, but as I understand the nearest one is doing a massive expansion. I shopped there once and found it false economy as I didn't much like what I bought, but that said I know a lot who are very happy with what they buy.

    1. This was a store which closed for a big expansion, we thought we would just check it out, I do prefer Morrisons & Asda though.

  7. We have a new Lidl in our area, very close to us, we love the shop and the value. If we shop and don't add extra's we get really good value. Having said that, it is nice every now and then to have something new and pretty in your home.

    1. It is very similar to Aldi, we don't pick up many extras.

  8. Lidl is my nearest supermarket and is on the same site as Home Bargains, Poundstretcher, Farm Foods and Argos, very handy I can get just about everything that I need from one place. I just wish that I could do it in one shop.
