Tuesday Photo Challenge – Groceries

As Queen of the housekeeping spreadsheet, this is very up my street Frank!

With our recent income reduction, I have seriously revised the way we shop, and now we do a monthly binge of about £50………. freezer, cupboards, bulky stuff like toilet tissue and kitchen roll, leaving a weekly shop of around £15 for basics.
I’ve noticed prices are already creeping up by 10 or 20 pence an item and BREXIT hasn’t happened yet.

Below is my comparison chart which I’ve used in several posts already.
Not exactly a photo is it.

Since doing this though, there have been amendments, for instance I don’t buy Flora anymore and there is more fruit and veg so I should revise my lists.

These are the best groceries to have though: homegrown!
Top : onions and green beans       Bottom : tomatoes and gooseberries.

even if they were all last year.
Our crops were a disappointment in 2019, but we think it was because we grew everything in pots so that has now been rectified and we shall see what 2020 brings us!

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Homegrown is the best. Prices for local grown produce in the stores here is too high. Unfortunately I can buy imported fruits and vegetables cheaper. Much as one wants to support local, it comes down to my pocketbook.

    • Know where you;re coming from Jackie. We are constantly looking for ways of saving a few pennies here and there. I;m finding frozen is a cheaper alternative too.
