I woke up this morning with a smile on my face determined that today would be a new start!
I was ultra prepared last night, digging out sausages from the freezer to make a casserole (not casserole weather I know). So this morning all I had to do was throw them in the slowcooker with baked beans, onion, peppers, carrots and job done.
So off I trotted to Farmfoods - if you have one local then your a lucky devil!
I was VERY strict, whaltzed in picked up 2x 2 litres of milk, 2 loaves of hovis bread, block of mild cheddar cheese and 15 eggs - provisions for this week.
The total..... £6 bargain!
Happy shopper I was indeed!
Then lunch time I convinced hubbie to have a sandwich, with fruit and crisps, DD had the same but with yogurt instead. The sausage casserole was bubbling away, so off we went to the local park which also has a kiddies pool for DD to swim.
Hubbie suggested drawing out some cash etc for the usual lollies and drinks I sternly declined we were being frugal afterall!
So cheap day had by all! You'll be surprised how much food you actually have in your house if you sit down and plan it properly. Ive managed to makes a meal planner for the week without spending any more money!!
