Over the past few months we’ve been making more of an effort to buy food and household items when they are on offer rather than when we need them. This has resulted in full cupboards and a very full freezer.
So over the next couple of months we should only need to buy fresh food – bread, milk, eggs, yogurt, fruit and veg. We certainly won’t go short of food for sometime!
Some of the best recent bargains have been :
- turkey breast steaks – 3 for £1.149
- PG Tips – 160 for £2.09
- jars of salsa dip – 34p each – for hubby’s snack fest in the evenings!
- bags of egg fried and pilau rice 37p each – not something I usually buy but there’s plenty in each for 2 people and makes a change from noodles or plain rice.
- Baxters soup – at less than 50p tin – ideal for quick lunches.
- Luxury Muesli – under a £1 bag
To make room for all the bargains I’ve had to tidy the kitchen cupboards and the freezer. The freezer is the size of a fridge freezer so holds quite a bit! At least I know where everything is in there now! Drawers full of meat and chicken, fish, bread/cakes/wraps, and home-made ready meals.
We had a drive out to Abergavenny and enjoyed a walk around the indoor market. Lots of stalls for the flea market but we both resisted buying anything – I’m a bugger for glasses and can’t usually resist nice shaped or coloured ones!
The market has big veggies hanging from the rafters!
Orange Wednesday this week was Dallas Buyers Club. I wasn’t sure that it would live up to expectations as it’s getting very good reviews and also wasn’t sure hubby would like it considering the theme. Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto lost loads of weight for the film and are virtually unrecognisable. It’s a cracking story and I heartily recommend it to you.
We’re not seeing grandson until tomorrow – hopefully it’ll stay dry so we can all go for a walk and have some time in the park. Whatever it was that made him sick didn’t hang about long. Mummy and Daddy reported him fit and well on Sunday!
