What a £1 a day shop can look like.
Here is what we are doing. Including a shopping list and proposed menu.
Our potato's where substituted by Tesco for a slightly bigger bag of the next brand up at no cost to us. We also got a free sample of breakfast biscuits arrive with the shopping so I've included them in the food as well, they will probably be saved for husband and over-slept-breakfast-emergencies!
I was actually surprised by how much there was. I've done shops for much more that have looked much less. I'm feeling pretty confident we can survive the week with relative ease. Nutritional wise it looks as if we are going to have to eat a lot of carrots and peas to keep up our 5 a day. Protein is probably going to get a bit boring. But there seems to be an abundance of carbohydrates!
