NO MORE SPENDING
30. 08. 2014

Grocery haul! Here’s what I purchased on Thursday to complete my grocery spending for August.

GROCERY HAUL

I also bought 4 cans of soup, black pepper, garlic granules and a loaf of bread. I changed our menu plan for this weekend – we’re now having pulled pork burritos and subs over the two days as I bought a slow cooker. I can’t wait to get using it! The leg joint was £6.44, but it should do us for a lot of meals.

How did your grocery spending go in August? Are you under or over budget?

Hello! Well I sort of dropped off the map for a while there. I got sick not long after posting on Monday, and then lost most of the week to it!

Our menu plan for the week.

Menu Plan:

Menu Plan 17

M has the week off work (yay) and we’re going in to London for 24 hours (the hotel night is free as we’re using Reward points), but apart from that it’s a normal week.

Pantry/Store Cupboard?

One of the big differences between living in this apartment and our old house, is the lack of a pantry cupboard. I’m happy to reduce most of what we own, but it feels strange not having a small stockpile of food…..even if it’s just canned goods. So I’m thinking that this will be something that I work on during September.

Kitchen cupboards

This ^ is our current food storage situation – two small cupboards. I’d like to at least double this space if possible, which means that it’s time to take a look at the ‘stuff’ in my kitchen and see what can be moved around or passed on.

What’s on your menu this week?
