I’ll be back soon!

I dropped the ball a bit on the run up to the silly season. Things got fairly busy with work and preparing for a big feast with lots of guests and I never found the time to blog. Poor show I know. But I am coming back. Posts in preparation: Buy it or make it: Yogurt and a update on my average weekly grocery spend.

Meal plan and specials, Friday 14 November

This week Aldi has some great art materials going for a song, so while I was there for those I picked up a few staples like eggs, milk and tuna. Since I had a $10 voucher for Coles from last week’s shop I also popped by there to get whatever I could on special. Much to my joy I found free range split chickens marked down to less than the price of a regular whole bird so I...

Meal plan and specials, 7 November

This week Woolies was offering me 500 bonus Qantas points if I spent $80, or 750 bonus points if I spent $120. Coles was offering a $10 voucher if I spent $110 and $20 if I spent $150, plus I had a triple points voucher to use. The difficulty with Qantas points is that their value varies depending on what you intend to spend them on. This needs another post to explain fully, but in summary, the Coles...

Meal plan and specials, Friday 31 October

It’s a bit late to be posting this meal plan but I had a few server issues yesterday… This week we went shopping at Woolies AND Coles. We didn’t need a lot of things, so we just mainly bought specials for the pantry and freezer. I don’t really like going to two places, it is such a waste of energy, but Nudie juice was $5 at Coles and I’ve been waiting for some preservative free and not from...

Meal plan and specials, Friday 24 October

Not at all sticking to my plan of mixing things up to maximise rewards, we shopped at Coles this week… Not a great move but we did get a $5 coupon (to be used within a week) because we spent over $120 (we spent $124). If you spend $150 this week you will get a $15 voucher. We wouldn’t have hit the $120 without some decent specials to stock up on. This is not a particularly healthy list...

Meal plan and shopping list, Friday 17 October

We went shopping at Coles again this week and there weren’t a lot of bargains for us again, nothing to stock up on. Should have gone to Woolies! Yoplait yoghurt was two for $8, oat milk was 2 for $4.50 so that’s good for two weeks. Got two lots of canned chicken for hubby’s work lunch sandwiches at 40% off ($2 each), not ideal as it’s not free range but it gives him a break from tuna! We...

Meal plan and shopping list, Friday 10 October

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I don’t tend to shop to a meal plan. I might make a meal plan and go shopping, but come back with an entirely different shopping trolley of stuff! That’s because: a) the specials in the catalogues put out by the supermarkets only contain a selection of the offers that week, so it’s hard to know what is on special until you get there; plus b)you might get lucky with a few...
