January Shopping Week Three

This is for the week 11 - 16 January, a short week because I'm still sorting out shopping days. We're going shopping tonight for the next week then it should be plain sailing. I think I know what I mean.

I've just had a look at my online receipts and there is now a price match at my supermarket so I "saved" 31p this week. The loyalty card scheme only started part way through last year so I'm still getting used to it. As far as I can see when there's a price match discount it's added to "my rewards" when this gets to a fiver I'll receive a voucher through the post. I can get extra rewards if I buy certain items and certain items have an extra 10% off (like Waitrose). Without knowing all that it turns out my rewards balance is £4.85, so I'm not too far away from getting a voucher. I'm not quite sure how that's added up to so much but I'm not complaining. Anyway, spending this week - 

£ 8.97 f&v
£ 7.65 pantry
£ 2.26 dairy and non-dairy
£ 4.89 bread
£ 0.80 non-food

Total £24.57

Total £77.96 (Jan 1-16)

Quite expensive but we treated ourselves to a sack of potatoes (£5) and something for our anniversary. The final week of the month will be off menu plan as I've been cooking extra each night so we'll have a freezer week.


  1. It's a mistake having new posts delivered to your email address as you tend to rad them and then forget to comment. I am amazed by how often you manage to blog. I've not done it for ages now, don't seem to have the time.

    I hope you are going to keep us up to date with your quilting progress with pictures too.

    1. I don't think it's a secret that I have too much time on my hands! I have internet time pencilled into my daily routine. I've had a routine since I started sorting my house out, getting rid of the hoard and generally cleaning up my act so I made time for the support forum I used to visit and now for this.

      If the sun ever comes out I'll take some pictures of the quilt progress.

  2. You're doing well.
    Love from Mum
