While I was at Asda picking up the basic Store Cupboard items shown on yesterdays post, I decided to go back in and purchase the things I had priced from there for my Big Shop. There's no point in going backwards and forwards wasting fuel just for the sake of it.
I spent a total of £7.66 in Asda.
To be honest I was impressed with the amount of food I got for this amount of money. At the back of my mind was the figure of £20 for a big shop to start me off in this Challenge and then an allowance of £2 per week for more fresh stuff to supplement what I will have in my cupboard, fridge and freezer at the start of the Challenge.
There's lots to think about with all this but I do want to try and make this as healthy a 28 days as possible even with the limited budget I've given myself, so I'm aiming to get as close to my five a day as possible.
I found a good info-graphic about what can be included in your Five a Day.
So even these tinned and packet foods contain a good percentage of the fruit and vegetables I will be needing throughout the 28 days.
While I was out and about getting my Store Cupboard items I also picked up these as mentioned in yesterdays post. Spending another £3.65 in Tesco on what I think are pretty important items for me.
So up to now I've spent £11.31 of my 'Big Shop'money.
