We arrived at week three of our "spend £20 get £4 off vouchers" and I found it really hard to write a list. There are some things that I can't get or won't buy from the supermarket because they're just too expensive. So to get up to the minimum spend became quite hard, the balancing act of buying things we wanted/needed without spending more on individual items than I usually would, or just buying for the sake of it was hard. It really has made me wonder how I have burned through the grocery budget in the past.
Switching this month to a cheaper supermarket has helped of course, but I wouldn't want to, and couldn't afford to just shop at one place all the time. By the time we got into the car to go shopping I still hadn't reached £20 worth of groceries, Dan kindly offered to have a bottle of beer and some falafel to help things along. It did help and we were all happy.
Just next week to get through and then it's over. We received some decent till spits this week too, £1.47 price match, which I assume is something to do with soy/ almond milks and some bonus points for things we buy anyway. It's been a worthwhile project and has given me lots of insight into our shopping habits, I can now see why the extreme coupon people get excited!
