Well that's one job finished for another week or so. I decided to go to Tesco and get my shopping in. Could have stretched it to another day I suppose, but what the heck, just get on with it. Not many people in the store, so there wasn't a scrum to get the reduced stuff. Some good prices as usual, 90% off in some cases. Did well with the salads and veggies, could have done with some more bread though. Only white sliced on offer at 24p, so I picked one up. I don't like white bread very much, but it will go in the freezer for toasting. I had a Value sliced wholemeal loaf at the normal price of 47p, so not too bad.
I must tell you, it took all my willpower not to pick up a packet of biscuits. I normally don't go down that aisle, but the honey and lemon curd were directly opposite so I had to. Oh my, I was sorely tempted, should I get a cheap packet of Value biscuits. I thought I would let myself down if I had to put that in the food diary, so I walked on by, I didn't pick one up :o))
I managed to get some treats for the cats and Rocky, good reductions on sliced ham, beef, and chicken. They will love that. On the home baking section it was a buy 2 get 1 free promotion. I needed sultanas so I got three packets, a little saving there. I also had a voucher for 50p off any Linda McCartney products, so I got two packets of veggie sausages for £1.50. Six in a packet makes three meals. Oh, and I had a £3 off voucher so that brought the total down a bit. Every little helps.
Now my fridge is full again. I've got stacks of vegetables to go at, and salad, so that's me happy. Although I keep tinned food in, I don't eat a great deal of it. Our empty tins and glass for recycling is collected once a fortnight by the council, but I only need to put my box out every six or eight weeks, as there is hardly anything in it. Not worth the lorry stopping to pick it up with such a piddly bit in it.
Anyway, I'll add the shopping list to the food diary tomorrow. I'm off to bed now for a read, I'm into a good book. Goodnight.
