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 and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
