So this week’s shopping was a multi-location extravaganza! Mainly because we tied it in with other outings!
The first leg was done on Becksie’s way home from the Denman College, and saw her stop at Millets Farm to pick up more frozen peas (now we have them again we just can’t stop eating them!) and to get some walnut oil and spelt flour to recreate the yummy bread she had made earlier in the morning! A few other bits and bobs took shopping part 1 to £16.65!
The next leg took place today, Becksie was off to Cirencester for a bit of business and called in at a very nice Grocer that we know of!
Now what was most exciting about this particular grocer was that they gave us an itemised receipt, complete with the weights of what we had bought and everything!! And so………… we have popped onto a popular supermarket comparison site and….. we were more than pleasantly surprised!! Whilst we knew we were saving money it was great to see it in black (or rather grey) and white!! Our total spend in the grocers was £17.68, and the supermarket comparison…………….
The final stop on the mystery tour saw Becksie pop into the deli in Faringdon on her way home, where she had a lovely chat and picked up some reduced butter, a massive block of Cornish yarg (yum) and a few other bits, all for the princely sum of £6.60!!
All in all a very good if fragmented week’s shopping! We did not get any more meat this week as we still seem to have a freezer full, but with a total cost of £40.93 for the week we certainly could have got some if we needed to!!
This weeks shop brings our total savings since starting our year without supermarkets to £191.96 and we have not broken any of our rules and have most certainly stuck to our £50 per week budget!
