Food Shopping – 08.06.15 – Asda

Hi guys,

Another budget food shop for you 🙂 I went to Asda this week for a quick shop. I was searching for some low point snacks and several posts about how some of the Asda Smartprice range were around 2pp and pretty cheap so win win all round (as long as it tastes good!)

Everything else: Yeo Valley 0% natural yoghurt (half pot 1pp), Dairylea light cheese slices (1pp each), Laughing Cow extra light triangles (3 for 1pp), wafer thin ham (30g for 1pp), bagel thins (3pp each), sandwich thins (3pp), Smartprice caramel wafers (2pp each), 15 eggs (2pp each) and Smartprice baked crisps (2pp each).

Total: £23.82

I think I’m getting the hang of this budgeting malarkey. Putting my list through the website first definitely helps as I make a note of prices so I don’t pick the wrong item or go too crazy.

Anyhow, I hope someone out there found this useful. If you have any questions, just leave me a comment.

Until next time.. x

Not too much this week and trying to get the most out of meals so I’m not cooking too much either as I’ll be back at college and this week is going to be crazy busy at work as well so just want to make it as stress free as possible. Hopefully it will cut down on my shopping costs as I overspent last week so it’ll even out a bit 🙂

Until next time.. x
