Grocery Haul #30

A mini grocery haul today. This will be my last spending on grocery in February and so I’m finishing up the budget for that today.

I visited Asda, which is not my local store, but I happened to be close by, so popped in as I knew the coffee was on offer.

Receipt breakdown: £31.92

– £24.00 Coffee (12 tins – usually £4 each)
– £0.75 Bread Rolls
– £2.00 Chocolate Biscuits a 2 packs (a treat for M!)
– £2.00 Organic Sweetcorn x 4 (usually  £0.74 each)
– £2.17 BBQ Sauce
– £1.00 Branston Pickle

My total grocery spending for February is £204.61, under budget by £5.39. We were away for six days this month and this enabled me to build up our mini stockpile, and still keep to budget. The freezer and cupboards are very well stocked at the moment.  Eventually I’d like to get to the point where everything I buy for our store cupboard is on offer. I haven’t quite got there yet, but I’m hoping to this year.
