The Great Food Challenge - the sequel. Meal Planning and ordering - week 1.

You may have followed my 2 adults, 2 children, 4 weeks.......£200 challenge last month.
Well as I only went £1 over I figured it's GOT to be worth another attempt.

The Ongoing post can be found on the tab at the top........

here's my Week 1 summary.... check back next weekend to see how I did......




This week I realised I hadn't taken advantage of Sainsbury's introductory offer of £15 off when you spend £60 with their online grocery service.  So instead of my usual Tesco shop (have been less then impressed with their customer service latly) I switched........

Once again I'm not allowed to meal plan for hubby (unless he is eating the same as us) but I have been able to sort out me and the boys.

SO - shopping is booked for tomorrow and using up freezer contents our meal plan will be:
