Tues 24th April – Mon 30th Apr 2012

I bought a bit more fresh veg this week…. but the chance encounter with our local green grocer was too good an opportunity to pass up… so thats my excuse and Im sticking to it.

Last week was such a dissapointment budget-wise and honestly I completely lost track…. I must have spent about (more or less) £60 or so on food we didnt need and top ups. {<—- bows head in shame}

Well I know £60 may not seem allot to some but its twice what we usually spend… and more than we needed. What a waste. Sooooo this week I reverted back to what I knew was cheap and some absolutely fabulous locally source veggies which I will definately be blogging on soon (the topic of locally sourced veg not my actual veg lol)
