As you can see this is what I spent today on the shopping. First at Aldi, and then at the Supermarket. I like shopping at Aldi, contrary to a recent Radio 2 broadcast the staff are always on hand, friendly, helpful and the store is always clean. I also have NEVER been asked am I new to ALDI because of the way I dress.
The items I highlighted in orange on the receipt are items I want to do some research on… can I get them anywhere else for less. I’m not a great or enthusiastic ‘shopper’ as such, but I will walk to Timbuktu if it means I get 10 pence off the price of butter. Its not that I’m tight… I just don’t like having to pay more for something I can easily get for less… I think its a waste and utterly pointless. Now if its snowing, hailing, fire balls, flooding or chucking it down with rain… then I consider that 10 pence well spent!
All the veg is from within the UK… if its not I don’t buy it…which is why I sadly walk past all the plums and peel-able oranges <— haven’t had one since we started rationing 😦
I couldn’t resist puff pastry at 85p a roll… Puff pastry is a swine to make and can take 2 days to do if you want to do it well.
So I bought the last two rolls and popped them in the freezer… for another time.
Just FYI, my hair is silky, smooth and manageable.
Not one to speak ill of Supermarket chains #Cough but these places are getting so expensive.
Some apples, reduced price pastry, cheap bread, and golden syrup (pricier every time I buy it) and some shampoo… and squash which technically only miss E is entitle to (under rationing) … but all the kids get it really.
£31.51 was the total for the week.#Not Happy That said, if you take away the overpriced shampoo, none edibles and the pastry I wouldn’t normally have bought that’s a more respectable £21.24… not sure the budget police will go with that though…
… you live you learn… and now with flake free hair :D.
