I had to go to town today in search of cat food which would not upset Bugsy. He can't eat Felix or Whiskas any more, they make him sick. I got him some gourmet tins, and some fresh chicken which I will grill tomorrow.
While I was in town I had a look in the small Asda and found some yellow stickers. YAY, yogurt and veg. Then I popped in Aldi for a few items, no yellow stickers sadly. And on the way home I went to Sainsbury's to pick up some food for the rescue cats. Guess what I found, YES, more yellow stickers. The girl was marking down broccoli. I said, 'oh no, not more broccoli', and told her the story of eating it for two weeks and blogging about it. She laughed, and said, 'why not have a change, there are some sprouts in the next aisle marked down'. Ha ha, I got three bags, so it's sprouts all the way now.
I have added up what I have spent on my food this week in four shops, and it comes to £16.21. Tesco £4.66. Aldi £4.77. Asda £4.30. Sainsbury's £2.48. Cherry picking the best bargains certainly pays off for me, and I don't have to drive very far to do it. I always combine journeys. My fridge is looking full now, I have enough to last a week or more. I reckon I spend an average of £15 a week on my food.
Guess what was for dinner tonight. Veg of course, with a quarter of a cheese and onion quiche, at 25p.Justine's blog Jazzy's Place, the other day, she said she has started doing the Park Run. It's a 5k run on a Saturday morning, there are venues all over the country, and it's free. I had a look on the Park Run web site, and have signed up for it. Might as well give it a go, don't want to bugger my knees up though, but 5k once a week should be alright. I'll make an effort and go this Saturday.
It's looking like I might go for a ramble tomorrow, off to study the maps. Toodle pip.
