I went to Sainsb*rys for this weeks shopping armed with my Nectar points and a £2.01 coupon I didn't expect to spend much money, and I didn't. I bought all the things above ...
... and four tubs of our favourite icecream as it was on offer at half price, for the grand sum of 83p. With the other 17p going into the Sealed Pot that's a spend of £1 on food shopping this week, and I've still got £6.69 of Nectar points left :-)
The proof. Yay....I remembered to save the receipt :-)
(The receipt can be made readable by clicking on it to enlarge the picture.)
On the big advertising boards outside they had their 'Meal Deal' offer of a sandwich, drink and a bag of crisps for £3, I really don't know why, I'm not usually, but I was sorely tempted by the thought of a nice easy lunch when I got home. But I literally pulled myself together and thought things through.
My favorite loaf is £1.50, I had freshly grated cheese in the freezer at home, jars of homemade pickled beetroot in the cupboard, I have more than enough choice of drinks and lots of Approved Food crisps, so I made myself a 'Meal Deal'.
"Buy yourself a loaf, get the cheese out of the freezer to thaw while you are putting away the shopping, open a new jar of home pickled beetroot and make an icecold drink of sparkling water with ice and a slice. Sit in the sunshine and enjoy an hour off and a saving of £1.50."
Now that's my idea of a good 'Meal Deal'.
