Grocery Haul (January #1)

My budget is £200 a month for 2/3 people. I grocery shop once a week and keep a stockpile of items that we use on a regular basis.

    I always enjoy reading your posts about shopping Laura. I know, very strange behaviour, especially if it is accompanied by a photo too :)

    We have done our meal planning for the month and January could be a low (ish) spending month, probably because I went mad with the spending in December.

    Thanks for your constant inspiration.

    Hi Laura,
    LOVE These posts!
    Happy new year.
    Need to go and get some healthy food like you have now as my Christmas binge on ‘junk’ food needs to stop!
    I am just in the process of adding a manual link to your site from my new blogroll page

      Hi Stacey! We still have loads of chocolate in the house – which I’m trying to avoid – I’m not sure where it all comes from!
      Happy New Year x
