So far this month I have done three online food shops with Waitrose, using mysupermarket.co.uk to make the best use of deals and taking advantage of my incremental saving code. I have two more codes to go, next time I will save £20, and the time after that I will save £25! As a reward, I will get another £25 voucher in January.
Below are summaries of my three delivery totals:
Totals with savings and promo codes £74.14 + £79.51 + £72.32 = £225.97
£278.39 - £225.97 = £52.42 it
I HAVE SAVED MYSELF A WHOPPING £52.42!!!!!!!!!! SMUGGY SMUGGY SMUG SMUG!!!!
The challenge is going well as you can see. I have done one 'top up' shop at the pound shop, because they sell branded snacks for, well, a pound! I spent £7 on that trip and I am still comfortably within my challenge budget.
Because I am planning so well (which I admit is soooo dull, Wednesday comes round so fast!) I am finding that I don't need to do co-op top ups and I always have food in... gasp! Shocker!
Paul came home with a new recipe book for me yesterday, so next week I might try something new.
Maybe that's a challenge for December!!
As ever, thanks for sticking it out and reading this far - you know you love it - especially you Clare, my newest known reader!
