I'll forgive myself for not posting this on the right day but I bought these on Tuesday straight after I had my hair cut. I called into Booths to pick up some eggs for Alan and remembered I needed a new baby card as my second great-grandchild is on her way. 💗
I didn't need any vegan Magnums, but they were on special offer at £2.50 a box instead of the usual £3.60 and temptation won. So now I have six desserts ... or maybe just treats ... tucked into the freezer.
I can't find the receipt and that's probably why I forgot to post about them on Wednesday, I usually leave it on the worktop to remind me of my shopping folly. 😄
Anyway I know the Magnums were £2.50 each and the card was £3 for sure, so that's £8 spent!!
Alan was amazed at such a large bag of carrots for just 45p, but the basis of lots of my previous low spend Challenges has been a bag of carrots, one of potatoes and one of onions. For instance if you bought these three items from the Essentials/Wonky range at Aldi this week they would cost you a total of £1.84. and give you 5kg of vegetables for less than £2.
1.5kg Carrots 45p 1kg Brown Onions 50p 2.5kg Potatoes 89p
A couple of weeks this year I will most likely do a complete weeks shopping on just £10 using none of my tinned or freezer goods to bulk things out, just to see if it can still be done. Would you be interested in that or has it already been done to death?
Edited to add: Baby Nevaeh-Rose was born late last night weighing in at 7lbs 1oz. The little family are doing well. 💖
