End of week ten
Phew, back to a more normal spend this week – here’s what we spent:
Money – £46.56.
Time – about 30 minutes spent shopping.
It’s definitely becoming easier to avoid supermarkets now as it’s just become part of the routine. You do have to get used to paying slightly over the odds for things in local shops, and you also have to be more aware of what’s actually in your store cupboard, so that if you see something you need you can get it, rather than make a special trip when you really do need it and when the local shop probably won’t have it. Also re-discovered, although I was doing ‘Loaf’ shopping at the time, that Nima delicatessen in Moseley has a fantastic range of ingredients and will probably get me out of a scrape many times in the future, i just wish I lived a bit closer to it.
