Alan wanted some shopping, I must say it's weird to me just how many times he seems to be shopping ... but of course I joined in, it would have been rude not too!!
I didn't really need to, indeed I should be making do with what I already have in, but I thought why not get the things I have definintely run out of or am about to so that I can keep the cupboards reasonably well stocked. Hence my rather eclectic range of items. I had no peanut butter in at all ... which I rather disappointedly found out when I went in the cupboard to get some for my toast ... and the large tub was a very reasonable £3.99 and should last me quite a while.
Bread for my morning slice of toast which is now happily in the freezer, just two potatoes as I fancied a baked potato for lunch one day this week, wraps for quesadillas which make another nice quick but very satisfying lunch, mixed veggies because they were reduced and some more paracetamol to keep the stocks turning over.
I had been tempted by something in the middle aisle but I resisted.
And a packet of ready rolled pastry to go with it, as all mine is in the freezer and I simply couldn't wait for it to thaw out to make some sausage rolls for my tea. Aldi's lovely version for just £1.19 for four seem to have been discontinued since November of last year and I have really been missing them.
The other two items on the receipt were Alan's so not out of my budget (two boxes of Macaroni Cheese that you just add water to and microwave ... he said it was delicious).
So I have spent a total of £44.59 this month already, leaving me just £5.41 available for next week if I need to use it. The shortest month and already almost up to my budget, maybe I do need to do that definitive £10 shopping for one week to get me into a better mindset.
