Grocery Round Up

We've come to the end of our month of vouchers. We used most of them, some were for products I wouldn't tend to buy so we gave them a miss, but we used the ones we received through the post. 

This is what we used - 

£4.50 off £30 
£1 brand match
£1.50 off £10 
£ .87 loyalty card 

The £1.50 and 87p were for Booths, this was the only spending we did there this month for the first time in... 11 years or so. I thought I'd miss it but I didn't, it's only a shop after all. 

£4 off £20
£4 off £20
£4 off £20
£ .13 price match
£4 off £20
£1.47 price match.

Total £25.47

Dan also swiped the card whenever he bought petrol, we had a couple of other buy x get y points vouchers too from till spits and the My Coupons site. For example, this week we had till spits for 60 bonus points for buying fresh soya milk, 80 points for buying Alpro yoghurt, we also had one for triple points on our next shop. I loaded vouchers onto the card for 40 points for buying potatoes, avocado and melon. All of those things were on the list so it was just a few mini boosts that will add up to money off something in the future. 

We started the month with points worth £2.21 and ended the month with £12.58, with another £6.50 worth points still to be added from a bonus for using all the vouchers, one for a bonus for spending £20 aaaand points for using a "Local" shop.   

We are well under budget and we bought so much more than usual. We had to buy everything for the buns which came to £53.65, I bought Dan's bluetooth speaker, treats for two birthdays, a much needed bathmat and an oven glove. It's also the first time in months that we won't need to buy anything on the first of the month too. I'm impressed. As such, the budget is going down to £90 for February. 

 
*I know this isn't an essential, we did without it for years but Dan won't use a cloth to clean the surfaces and it makes the bunny pen far easier to clean.

  2. Wow, you sound like you've saved a ton of money this month using vouchers. It's good that you made a note of them all, to give you an idea of how it is benefiting you each month. That's a good idea. I use them regularly, but never total them up at the end of the month. I might try it this month, just out of curiosity.

    Having said all this, despite using lots of vouchers this month, I still went over budget on food. I think we've had a bit of a gluttonous month, so I maybe need to rein things in this month a bit.

    1. It's gone really well. I think now they think we're hooked the vouchers aren't going to be quite as generous but this month has certainly worked well.
