Blowing 10p

Day  104
Money Spent Today - 10p   Vouchers/Points Spent - £1.40
Money Spent in Total - £92.86   Vouchers/Points Spent in Total - £135.85
Emergency £5 Spent on Butter
Money left in purse  - £11.14
As I was calling back to Tesco for some petrol, I decided to nip in and spend my £1.40 coupon ....
... and as you can see from the receipt I was extremely restrained in my shopping, managing to buy just a loaf of our favourite bread, which with the coupon only cost me 10p.
It's now safely stashed in the freezer to be taken out a slice or two at a time and made to last us as long as possible.
But none of it will be touched this week as I am 'Living Below the Line'.  More about that tomorrow, along with a sneak preview of what I spent my £5 on to last me a full five days.

  1. We used to buy Warburtons...then a friend recommended a Panasonic breadmaker. Now we eat bread just as good as Warburtons, if not better, as I usually use organic flour. These work out at abou 90p a loaf, including the electricity. If you used Aldi bread flour and yeast (and this gives good results too) it would be MUCH cheaper. I marked off every time we baked a loaf on our calendar and it has just paid for itself!

    1. I do make my own bread, at least a couple of loaves a week and know how much cheaper this works out, but sometimes it's nice to be able to grab a slice of this out of the freezer and have some toast made with my absolute favourite bread. It shows how simple my tastes have become when a slice of seedy, sliced bought bread and a glass of 17p a litre Sparkling Water are my treats of choice!!

  2. PS...I made a mistake there...each loaf is 90p cheaper than Warburtons!!

  3. My favourite bread too, it's so moreish!
