M. has been away working this week and so I abandoned my 6 week menu plan for two days and ate soup instead. I’m now thinking about the remaining days of January and how I can keep my grocery spending on the low.

We ‘need’ the following, which I’ll buy tomorrow when I hit the big supermarket for the last time this month <— my goal!!!

*Shopping List


*Menu Plan:

2013 Grocery Budget: (Dec-Nov)

Goal: £2,000

What’s on your menu this week?

    Two thousand pounds for the whole year?
    That’s £38 a week.
    How many of you is that to feed? And does it include non-food stuff?

      Hi Penny! Yep lol. It’s for 2/2.5 of us – my son is home from uni in the holidays. It also includes non food stuff. I use a very limited amount of other stuff – clean with vinegar, soda crystals etc, don’t buy paper products apart from loo rolls

  2. Soup for a solo dinner is where it’s at! :-) I had my lentil soup & banana bread combination for a week when M was traveling. He’s gone again in a week or so, & I have a batch of chili in the freezer. I’m also thinking of making a potato soup. My favorite. :-)
