Running Total 13/06/21 Day 17

Not much shopping happened this week, no supermarket yellow sticker trips, just a massive shop for a picnic and bbq I had this weekend. This was to feed 6 kids and 2 adults at dinner and an extra adult at tea for the bbq. It resulted in quite a large spend, but the reason we…

Running Total 08/06/21 Day 12

A couple of days of shopping here as I can’t seem to get back into the swing of daily after half term, but I will! The fruit and veg at the bottom of this list was from our local grocers, they can be hit and miss, but they can be truly awesome! The tomatoes are…

Running Total Catch up 06/06/21 Day 10

Half term absolutely messed with every routine I have! Including my daily running total post, so here is a catch up. There have been 3 supermarket trips, none of these were for reduced items, they were to restock some bits and snacks for me, the husband and the eldest. This happens occasionally, they then live…

Running Total 02/06/21 Day 6

Half term, or any school holidays actually, completely change how I do my shopping. This half term, the husband has been and picked up some bits we needed like apples, bananas and cucumber, and while he was there he grabbed some reduced things which is always nice! Indian takeaway bag 2 sweet chilli chicken meals…

Running Total 29/05/21 Day 2

Foolishly I forgot to buy apples yesterday! Something my small people seem to eat a lot of, so knowing that I won’t have access to a car during the day until at least Tuesday, the husband popped via the supermarket to make sure we could get through until then. Today’s purchases: 12 pints milk 2…

Running Total Reset 28/05/21

PAYDAY!! This means that my running total resets today! It also means that I do the money shuffle today, money left from last month heads into the savings, as does a bonus the husband got. Some of this will get paid off the mortgage soon, but we think the fridge/freezer may be on it’s way…

Running Total 26/05/21-27/05/21

Milk is the only thing we’ve bought in the last few days. We really haven’t needed anything! Thursday the 27th is the last day of this running total as the 28th will be pay day and it will reset! This results in an average daily spend for this month for a family of 5 of…

Running Total 25/05/21

Today I didn’t need anything, but the frugal side of me just had to go and check the reduced bits while I was out, I’m glad I did! I also had a £2 voucher, so a £2.30 spend actually only cost me 30! Today’s purchases: 7 boxes mushrooms Turkey mince Total spend: £0.30 Running total:…

Running Total 24/05/21

I needed bread this morning, so a quick trip to the shops on the way back from school, there wasn’t much reduced, but a few small loaves will do us for a day or two. Some sliced chicken and sausages were a bit of a bonus and I can’t pass up the chance to buy…

Running Total 23/05/21

Total spend: £0 Running total: £221.19 Another no spend Sunday! How I love these days, they make my daily average spend drop and that makes me happy, £9.21 is what it’s at now, and there will not be much spending before payday as we have things to use up. Tea tonight is roast cod, reduced…
