We also purchased a few other bits and pieces for the cupboards – Black Beans x 2 (not on offer) and Organic Porridge Oats. We spent a total of £56.72. Added to the £15.72 we spent last Friday my total grocery spend for February, so far, is £72.44.

February Grocery Budget Totals

Spending to date: £72.44/£210.00

Back tomorrow with a menu plan!




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.

    you have the best cheese in the world in Britain in my humble opinion. Doing good so far. I am posting tomorrow about my latest grocery trip and totals.

    Love these posts. I am looking forward to the meal plan. I have started doing this and hoping it helps me save money.

    Is it odd that I like these posts because of the pictures? I like looking at the different packaging, what is available in grocery stores and the pricing. Whenever I travel, a grocery store stop is on the agenda.

  4. We are doing well for groceries but over the counter meds are killing us. February is the easiest month to stay on track since it is only 28 days. You are doing very well so far!

    Lovely selection of foods.

    I like that you’ve gotten into the habit of slicing and portioning before you freeze. It saves a fortune in wasted foods doesn’t it AND it means that you don’t have to eat too much just because you’ve thawed something out so it must save inches off the waistline too!!

  6. You are well on track! I agree about the cheese; the Canadian market has just opened up to allow more imported cheese.
