I’m attempting to stick to a grocery budget of £230/$355 a month in 2011. 

In my weekly menu plan posts I often describe our meal plan as simple..and it usually is.  I don’t like to complicate things in the kitchen and only push the boat out with a new recipe once or twice a month.  I’ll let you in on a secret: I don’t like cooking.  The easier the meal, the happier I am and if I lived on my own, I’m sure I’d eat vegetable soup and seeded bread for dinner every night!

Last week my supermarket shop came to £46.99; this was reduced from £54.49 as I had a voucher for £7.50 off a £50 shop. This week I went to the same supermarket and spent £41.55.


Total spend £41.05


I’ve received a couple of questions from blog readers on my grocery spending, so tomorrow I’ll show you how this grocery shop relates to next weeks menu plan. I hope that you find it helpful :)

    I always spend less when I make a menu plan,I really need to do this more often :)

    I like the fact that you’re buying organic even though it is *usually* more expensive (not always), especially the eggs and meat as the welfare standards are higher. And obviously it is better for you.

    Loads of Organics there so not a bad price. Looking forward to seeing it tied in with your menu plan.
