Frugal Food Shopping

I have planned my menu for the week and on Sunday went to Aldi to stock up. I mainly stuck to the list but did buy a couple of extras for the freezer such as peas and sweetcorn. Below is the receipt, £49.46 and then I had the five pound voucher from the newspaper bringing it down to a rather respectable £44.46 for a family of two adults and two hungry teenagers. 
Tonight we had shepherds pie which was prepared on Sunday to save time this evening. Whilst boiling the potatoes for the topping I made a few more to make a corned beef and potato pie for dinner tomorrow night, just like Mamma used to make .
We are been frugal in this house right now.

Recent Makes

Hi, I just thought I'd pop by and show you some recent makes, these were actually Christmas presents for loved ones.
It was so hard to part with the above cushion, the colours strangely match the colours of my home perfectly. They also match Mama and Dads so it was wrapped up and taken for my Dad's Christmas present. The above is the front,
And the above here is the back.
Little Owlie here was knitted up for our Daughter, apparently been a teenager is no excuse not to cover your bed in cuddly toys.
Foxy loxy scarf was another knit for her, its a short scarf but perfect for keeping you warm.
Apart from a couple of crochet dishcloths that's about everything in the home made category.
I hope that your keeping warm in this cold weather, thanks for reading x.
