I had £2.72 to spend - and I didn't go shopping!!
Shopping every day is difficult if you're not used to that particular mindset. I knew I had more than enough food in the Van so I wouldn't go hungry, I had no real need to go into Garstang, my nearest town for shopping … so I just didn't go.
It does of course mean that I have twice as much, or almost twice as much to go shopping with tomorrow so that really is something to look forward too.
As usual I start a Challenge all fired up and ready to do it properly and then let something slip, but I'm not beating myself up over it, instead I'll get stuck into my leftovers and my food already purchased and sit and plan the next shopping trip.
Ooh a whole £5.47 … now what should I buy?
What would you buy with that amount that would give you three meals for one day? Maybe that's what I'll do, if I eat all my spoilable leftovers today I could have a little Challenge within a Challenge tomorrow that means I have to buy three distinct meals for Day Five all within my £5.47 budget and I'm not to use any of my previously bought items to supplement them. Then I will go back to my normal Challenge of spending £2.75 a day for the final two days.
That's a plan then 😎
