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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
