I went out with only half a plan in my mind … and no proper list.
I knew I wanted some ready rolled pastry, shortcrust would have been best but all they had in Aldi was Puff Pastry, so that would have to do. At just 85p a pack it was cheaper than anywhere else. I did toy with the idea of making my own, but buying flour and fat would have been more expensive and I don't want to be eating too many things made with flour this week as I am trying to concentrate more on vegetables.
The other things were just bargains I couldn't resist. A lovely fresh head of broccoli for just 39p and a butternut squash for 69p.
The stuffing mix will be used to make some stuffing balls to have as a sort of roast dinner with some of the veggies, and the part baked brown baguettes will be eaten once with some dhal and once to make a salad sandwich ... after I've been shopping for some salad stuff later in the week.
My receipt, accidently crumpled and then rescued, it shows that I have overspent by 3p …. doing maths while wandering around a supermarket used to be my strong point, seemingly not so much these days!
Carried forward 12p
Todays money £2.75
I spent £2.90 - which is a 3p overspend … oops, so now I have just £2.72 to spend tomorrow!
