I did well at Lidl's today - getting three of the four fruit/veg offers, and some carefully selected Greek products - I picked up the olives with sun-dried tomatoes, can of butter beans in tomato sauce and a pack of halloumi with basil. I didn't get the chocolate-covered sunflower seeds. I went round with my calculator and came in on-budget. It is helpful to know the prices before I go shopping. You started me off with that Secret of Success post about budget supermarkets! Thank you! Friday lunch-time was nice and quite too. 20 hours ago
Oh, how heart-wrenching! But you are handling this perfectly, Pookie, and your little girl will respect you for it. It happens when they go to school, when they leave home, when they get married....... these big changes are sprinkled all along the way! We can only do our best.
Enjoy Lidl's treasures today - I won't get there until Friday. I have spent some of my food budget on a veg box - which is terrific - all fresh & local at the moment. So I'll be getting mostly the stuff that can be kept in the cupboard (there's a word for that which I've forgotten!) and perhaps some halloumi as a dairy-treat! 2 days ago
