The weekly shopping is due to arrive this afternoon. I book a 4 hour slot which costs £1 and Sainsburys texts me with a 1 hour slot on the actual day of delivery. I have been allocated the weird time of 16.52 to 17.52pm today 😏 but it's not guaranteed. The delivery chappie was almost half an hour late last week but, in the scheme of things right now, it matters not a jot. It just means that I will cook our main meal at lunchtime instead of evening so that we will be free to accept, wipe down and pack away the delivery when it arrives. The cost this week is £49.38 There is a bar of chocolate and 2 bottles of beer on order for G which he has decided he will pay for himself instead of taking it out of the grocery budget, so the total above doesn't include them. This means that we are back on track regarding the allocated food spend, thank goodness.
Mind you, I've just checked the fridge and I think it will be baked beans and oven chips for lunch 👀
Never mind, we both like carbs on a day like today 😀 I'll do a proper food plan once I know we have all that we ordered. Unusually, there seems to be just one substitution this week: I ordered a multipack of 6 own brand plain crisps to go with our sandwiches. As they are out of stock they are sending me.....a multipack of 12 own brand plain crisps for the same price. I think I can live with that 👍
