This weeks vouchers shopping was done at T*sco to take advantage of my £13 worth, I also had a couple of coupons for extra points or money off. I managed to spend an additional £25.21 in cash as well ..... oops!!
It doesn't really look a lot in the picture but it is the meaty products (bacon, ham and fishfingers) that push the cost up. I actually got 10 bottles of the sparkling water, so that should keep me going for a month. I forgot to check the fridge before I went out and somehow completely forgot that we already had grapes (this is why it is important to check before you shop). I could have saved myself another £4 there :-(
But all in all not a bad weeks total to finalise the month of February.
Actual facts and figures can be found on the page at the top of the Blog.
Of course we were aided and abetted by our Approved Foods order coming in entirely free last week.
And speaking of Approved Foods .....
Look what arrived yesterday.
I was tempted by some of our favourite goodies and knowing that I had some more Paypal balance to use up I decided to go for it. Obviously these things will be rationed out slightly to last us as long as possible.
Tempted to try this because of the price.

Another order for free, I managed to get all this with the rest of my Paypal balance and still have £2.41 left ready for next time :-) and as you can see I saved over £65 on my shopping.
But I have a plan for March, that will hopefully see me spending even less than the total cash spend this month of £66. Call back tomorrow and see what I have in mind.
