Day Seventeen - Shopping


I'm back, but even though I've been away I've still had my Challenge head on, deciding what to buy and what I really needed to keep myself on track and help myself feel better about what I'm eating.

With this in mind I decided to 'splash out' an extra 30p on a loaf more like my usual favourite seeded type, so I chose a Tesco own brand multigrain loaf for 85p instead of the value 55p loaf I bought last time.


I also got four bananas off the market while I was away, so I could freeze them once they had ripened a bit more ready to make into a morning smoothie with the apples I also bought from Tesco as shown above.  I figured that along with the homegrown spinach that was one of this week's choices, I would be getting at least three of my five a day into to me first thing in the morning, making it less of a struggle later with the foods that I have got left.


I also splashed out another 35p on these reduced price baking potatoes from Booths when I was in there, everywhere I go I have my eyes scanning for yellow stickers ... perhaps that could be another Challenge further down the line!!


So a total of £2.33 spent this week ...

... leaving me with just £4.28 to see out the final eleven days of the Challenge.

  1. Good reduction on the spuds, Sue - we just don't seem to be out and about at a suitable time to get good reductions. Perhaps we ought to start.

    1. Just flukey really, I was in Booths at midday for something totally unrelated to the Challenge and noticed that all the fresh produce shelves were full of YS items ... I just thought what do I need most that will stay in good condition until I get home ... and spuds it was 😁

  2. Going really well, isn't it? I like the idea of a YS challenge too.

    1. I'm already thinking about the next few Challenges, and have decided that from now on they will be just one week/seven days long ... a YS only shopping and eating could be a good one ☺

  3. Good purchases! I feel like I'm Ready Steady Cook sometimes - basing meals on what's yellow stickered in our local Co-op, if I nip in straight after dropping the kids at school.

    1. I used to love Ready Steady Cook, now I have an image in my head of you tipping out the 'Red Tomato' carrier bag full of your things for tea.
