I had a good weekend albeit it a little quiet. I saw The Chap on Saturday / Sunday. I did have to go and do a little food shop spending £17.20 but apart from milk, I should be done now until the end of June.
Unusually, I bought some soft bread baps because they were reduced to 40p for 6. My shop was expensive, but I did buy some items that rarely make it onto my shopping list – namely 5 bars of chocolate and a jar of golden syrup.
I am entering a baking competition at the end of July and am making a cake called “Death By Chocolate” so I wanted to practise beforehand. My work colleagues are so excited!
I also had to buy some more eggs. I get through a lot of eggs probably about 18 per month, with baking and eating – I seem to recall someone telling me “They’re fast food and good for you.”
I normally buy eggs 10 at a time, but yesterday I just grabbed a box of 6. 3 years ago I always grabbed eggs from happy chickens, but yesterday I bought Tesco value eggs 6 for 85p.
I have seen all the information, that battery chickens are confined 5 to a cage with no sunlight and their feet never touching the ground. I also know it is cruel, but with money so tight in these stricken days I am afraid I do buy them. It is a small economy and I am not entirely sure it is justified. I also know that the UK is a nation of animal lovers and this will be an emotive issue, but I am interested in hearing everyone’s thoughts on this hot topic.
Back to the £5 Challenge today, only spending £5 in cash between today and Friday. A no spend day today, so £5 left for 4 days.
