I had a grocery home delivery this week – an online voucher for £5 covered the cost of delivery, so it was worth it to save me having to carry this lot!

Small stockpile
Curry Paste £1.00 x 6
Noodles £1.00 x 2
Shampoo, Nachos and Salsa all on 3 for 2
Loo Rolls £1.99 x 3
Mandarins 40p x 4

Grocery spend for November: £172.97. Despite all this stockpiling, with a little careful planning I can stay within my £200 budget.

*I used a few more advantage points today to pick up 6 more ‘free’ shower gels – we should have enough to last us all of 2013 now :)


In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

    Hi Laura :) I have spent my day putting my accounts back on Quicken. I tried doing them manually but was terrified of missing something, so I have gone back to downloading transactions from the bank and categorizing them in Quicken. Much easier. And transparent! That is how I know I overspent by $160(NZ) last fortnight!!! That was just on food as I split my supermarket spend into food, cleaning & supplies and personal care. Couldn’t believe it!!! This fortnight I’m watching exactly how much I spend :)Your site is inspiring me already :)

  2. Wow, that same curry paste costs $5.69 here! And of course I consider it a “must buy”!

  3. I bought groceries in Hawaii last week, & the prices nearly blew my socks off. The price of food overall was CRAZY expensive. I loved, loved, loved it there, but I’m not sad to be back & paying mainland prices again.
