I had a stock check and I didn’t need: toiletries, pet food, cleaning products so I could get away with a basic shop under £30 which will last well over a week. Fish portions in batter for DB, gluten free bratwurst, minced beef, turkey, wafer thin and eggs. Six liters of milk, spread, tinned tomatoes, salad, veggies both fresh and frozen, bread products for DB ( I only eat one slice of GF a day and take it out of the freezer as I need it) potatoes and loo rolls.
My menu: chilli, rice and salad. Cottage pie and veggies. Fish/GF sausage, homemade chips and veggies, turkey, salad and baked spud, scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes on toast. Vegetable soup and bread. Baked potatoes, beans and grated cheese. Lunches are ham/boiled egg salad or sandwich. Breakfast (I usually just have hot milk with instant coffee) is usually toast or cereals for DB. We’re not snackers and fill up at meal times.
I still have food in the cupboards and the freezer and aim to go well over a week before I go shopping again and stretch lots to two meals and leftovers for lunch. Nothing is going to be fancy and it’s a week of basics but I’m determined to save that money.
