I DONT buy cakes or biscuits, but I do buy the ingredients to make them and have baking powder, raisins etc in the cupboard board all the time. I buy one loaf a week and then make all the rest (lidl do a really good inexpensive bread flour and I buy in bulk when passing).
I also make sure I have Ice cream and cone in and when we hear the ice cream van we make our own. Sprinkles on top to make special or if they are really lucky then we might have a flake.
The garden is a huge source of produce for me, the peas are just coming to pod and the beans will be ready in the next few weeks. The spinach and chard is all cut and come again. We have tomatoes and onions, which we turned in to pasta sauce last year.
I always check the Internet to find out who has what offers on and shop around to ensure I get the best deal. I will buy cheese and freeze it.
So how much do you spend on your weekly shop and how do you keep the bills down in the current climate?
