Last week I somehow managed to spend £42.25, not too bad I suppose when some of it went on connectors for a repair to my hosepipe - I'd sprung a leak!!
So Spotty Jug got a donation of £27.75 from me, £10 from Lovely Hubby who had saved money on his lunches at work and a whopping £80 that is my temporary lodgers rent (I could learn to love this B&B lark). With a burp and a rub of his tummy he said 'much better than last week then!'.
I ended the week with a swift dash around 'the bad place' at 3.30pm on Sunday afternoon, thirty minutes before they close when all the reduced items have final reductions on them, and managed to get myself £13.09 worth of bready things for the grand sum of £1.49, see the picture at the top of the post. A saving of £11.60.
LH was particularly impressed with the 5 Apple Doughnuts for 10p, they didn't last very long! Most of it now resides in the freezer, although we did have some of the bread rolls turned into homemade garlic bread with our pasta on Sunday night.
This week to keep things moving along nicely while I'm so motivated I have decided it's Voucher Week. My Tesco Clubcard vouchers arrived in the post last last week and when I came to put them in my purse I discovered I had not spent the last lot yet. So I have £18 in Tesco vouchers a couple of 'extra points for purchases' vouchers, a money off coupon for a yogurt, a competition voucher and £6.75 in Gardening Club vouchers.
As Tesco is a forty minute drive away we don't go there that often, but I have remembered another branch that is near the garden centre where I could spend my Gardening Club vouchers, so one day this week, (I'm only going shopping when the milk runs out) I will head there and try to get as much shopping with my vouchers as possible and try to hang on to my cash so I can make Spotty Jug happy again at the end of the week.
Now I'm off to thin out my baby Broccoli plants and water the polytunnel.
Have a lovely day.
