March Challenge - Day 6


Today's purchases. 

This morning we  needed milk so I picked some up in the co op but won't be doing that again, six pints were £1.99 , six pints in Asda are £1.65.


From Asda this afternoon some salad and some lovely lemons.





Some fruit to go with the yogurt for breakfasts, I am currently using Easiyo from the cupboards so don't have to buy yogurt for a while.



Asda are clearing these - 75p each.



I also picked up the other two "free" soups.

Tea tonight was some of the gammon I cooked up yesterday.




Served with boiled potatoes, a bag of spinach from the freezer, the reduced cauliflower I bought the other day, and some parsley sauce from the cupboards.








Todays spend - £ 10.37

March spend so far - £17.42

  2. Yum, I just love gammon with boiled potatoes and parsley sauce. Could do without the spinach though!

  3. Excellent frugal buys - I've never bought a parsley sauce mix, I always make my own parsley sauce. Not that keen on it, but Sir loves it! I didn't know you could freeze spinach! I learn something every day!

  7. We just have local milk over here and it's a fixed price. I'll check out my till Bill tomorrow and report in with the price. It will be nothing near to £1.65! The gammon looks tasty.

    1. It is nice when local produce is affordable.

    2. PP reporting in! Local produce often comes at a cost. Our milk from next month will be £1.27 for 1.7 pints, £5.08 for 6.8 pints if my mental arithmetic is functioning! Asda £1.65 for 6 pints.

  12. I bought some of that Alberto Balsam Shampoo while it was on offer, shampoo and conditioner for £1.50 and I didn't like it at all. I had the raspberry one though.

    1. We are currently using the apple one that's why I bought two more, I do not stick to one sort I vary it. I suppose we are all different, some might work for some but not others.
