I’m late with my menu plan again. My daughter is moving home and I’m so caught up in it, I feel like I’m moving.
Anyway between the clothes sorting and the box packing, I’ve been food shopping and had a food delivery. The food delivery was my first from Approved Foods, and it’s certainly stocked up the cupboards!
Not pictured but I also stocked up on meat, fruit and veggies this week.
One example of how AF reduces the cost of your shopping: My price books tells me the cheapest I’ve ever bought a jar of our favorite salsa is £1.06 (when it was on a 3 for 2 offer). AF price £0.75. When you apply this across a lot of goods it saves you a lot of money.
2013 Grocery Budget: (Dec-Nov)
I would love to
get back on budget bring the budget a little back in line by the end of February (first quarter of our budget year) – so end of Feb spending = £500, but I’m not sure I can do it.
I’m experimenting with a six-week menu plan which I’ve worked around my shifts at work. It will be subject to little changes, but I’m trying to stick to it as much as possible.
I seem to be spending way too much time on my grocery budget this year, but keeping
control track of every expense will really help us to achieve out mortgage debt reduction goal of £25,000.
