Sharing is caring!

I’m back on the meal planning wagon.  I’ve climbed aboard again for two reasons.  One, I’m spending far too much money on what appears to be very little actual food, and secondly, I’m tired of asking people what they want me to order from the supermarket.

It’s usually Gav who does the cooking in the evenings and I’m the one who decides what we’re eating.  Today is grocery delivery day [since I can’t drive at the moment whilst I’m waiting for my MRI results] and naturally because I’m writing about the cost of shopping today, I’ve spent more than usual but at least I’ll seem like I’ve cut back next week 😉

Below is what I’ve planned for this week, and our shopping came in at £134.60, listed below.
