2016 vs 2015

I have more or less completed my food spreadsheet for the year, and I have to admit, I am quite impressed with myself!

Had I not kept a separate sheet to track my ‘diet shopping’ and thus can ignore it, I would actually have shaved over £200 off our annual food bill this year.
As it stands, we have only spent £78.35 more in 2016, and our average weekly shop has increased from £32.96 per week to £34.47.

However, October was our most expensive month this year, but what a difference cutting back on fruit purchases has made!
I certainly still won’t need to buy any for a while as MSM gave me a huge fruit basket which is still half full.

The challenge for 2017 is to better the figures, eat healthily and try to even it out a bit!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
