I was more than surprised when we visited my brother yesterday to receive a gift from him! He works in warehousing for a supermarket and they have recently started stocking jackfruit. So that's something to add to the menu plan and saves us a few bob.
I share my menu plans quite often so I thought I'd share my shopping list today. We won't be going shopping for a little while but I've written the list anyway as I know we'll need things throughout the month. The shopping list goes hand in hand with the menu plan and the pantry list I write before the month begins. That makes it seem more complex and time consuming than it really is.
It is organised to my mind! Next to each item I make a note of where I'll buy each thing, L for Lancaster, either the tea shop or the health food shop, HB for Home Bargains, S for supermarket etc. Things with hard brackets are things we will almost certainly need so I'll keep some money back for them, but we won't buy them immediately.
It works for me!
