Another Free Shop

Nothing much to report since my last post.  The weather continues to be foul with either a frosty start, which I don't mind, or several days of mist and fog which never lift all day.  Roll on Spring, I say....

Yesterday we did a top up shop in Sainsbugs and bought bread, Activia yogurt (8 pots for £2), handwash, value washing up liquid and some veg for the weekend. Two little pots of Limoncello dessert were on offer at £1 saying "buy me....buy me..."   I gave in and treated OH to a bit of lemon-y lusciousness :D The total cost was £5.70 and I used some more Nectar points so only parted with £1.70 cash.

I think that brings the spend for January up to £61.59 so far.  I am running out of stuff from the freezer to use as a basis for meals so will need to buy fish and meat next Monday and might have to make a meaty stew for OH to last him for a couple of days, just so that he doesn't feel deprived at all :)

How are you all doing with eating down the freezer and cupboards?  Any unusual meal combinations that I might not have thought of?

Have a lovely weekend and thanks everso for popping in x

  1. We're down to the last meal in the freezer but we still have a haggis and quite a bit of veg in there, so plenty of value still hiding within. We did far too much shopping at the start of the month so I'm stretching every single thing now to stop it happening again. We've had some nice meals this week, especially a nice bulghur, roast veg and chestnut bowl last night, surprisingly tasty.

  3. We are eating out of the freezer and actually having a feast most days. A lot of meals that I prepared in November ready for the busyness of December didn't get eaten so are a welcome treat now. You are certainly doing well with your spending.

  4. We have only had to buy chicken, but have loads of other meats in the freezer. Looks as if we will be extending ours into February.

    1. Wow, well done Marlene! I don't think I will have much left at the end of Jan but that was my plan just to get to the end of the month with a tidy freezer and cupboards. We won't be here for Feb so I can make a fresh start with re-stocking in March.

  5. I am still working through packs of frozen tomatoes from last year. Sadly, on the last few potatoes in the sack.

    1. Oh dear, I feel very deprived without potatoes; think jacket potatoes with crispy skin, cheese and potato pie, cottage pie, roasties.....oooh I feel hungry now!

  6. I thought we would be moving before we ran out of freezer stuff but with the delay I'm thinking maybe not!
