Day 1 – Tea

Jar of korma with two onions, frozen sweetcorn, a few mini mushrooms and a tin of chickpeas. With pasta.

Awesome and contrary to the principle of leftovers, we ate All of it.

Free entertainment 

Today we did not go to the town show, because it would just be a lot of stalls where money is required, and I don’t want our little girl to be disappointed 😦

We still had a lovely day though! Fun at the playground and fun repairing and painting the fence at the front of our house (this is fun when you are 3. Also apparently 38) 😉

£100 for a month of groceries – Week 1

We have quite a few things in the cupboards and freezer already which helps.

£39 shop from Asda – completely over budget of £25 but got in a few things we hopefully will keep for a while like gluten free flour (handy when coeliac!) and meat.

Went to Tesco, used my vouchers to get a big bag of gram flour, 1 bag of gluten free bread, 9 loo roll and 6 cat food tins (amusingly, gluten free). All for the fabulous price of £0.

I am aware that this will get harder as our store cupboard supplies decrease, and our vouchers run out.

Palm oil content – zero. Yay!

Meat – one pork (pig) shoulder, 2 bags of bacon, pack of bargain luncheon meat. Hideous on the sustainability and ethical front. Hopefully as we get better at this I can work out how to swap it to vegan choices. However the 3 year old will eat the pig pieces which is also a strong consideration.

Organic – none.
