Feeling Optimistic

October 21st, 2013 at 06:30 am

We went to Aldi on Saturday. I spent £61.56 but only £51.09 was on food. I couldn't get everything I wanted, so I picked up a couple of things before work yesterday. Spent £2.49. So I've spent £53.58 on food, and I've got £36.42 remaining. (I budgeted 90 as opposed to 140 last pay peiod)

I had to alter my meal plan slightly after I'd been shopping because there were a lot of root vegetables on offer. This week I'm making:

- cottage pie with vegetables
- spicy root and lentil casserole with rice and naan bread
- baked potatoes with beans and cheese
- leftovers

I'm feeling pretty good about my minimal spending. Cupboards, fridge and freezer are stocked so I only expect to have to buy fresh items. I wasn't feeling so optimistic while we were shopping though, in fact I was a bit moody with hubby when he tried to get something that wasn't on the list - even though I added a few items that weren't on the list because they were on offer.

The rest of my food shopping money is sitting in my small document holder. I need to withdraw the other cash for SG and household.
