£50 Weekly Food Shop Challenge | AD

I won’t lie, I’m not organised. I’m not one of those people who stick to lists and make plans and do things on time (very rarely am I on time for anything!).

But I’m a trier ~God loves a trier am-I-rite~

So when Satsuma Loans asked if I could spend £50 to do my shopping for the week, in the words of Barney Stinson: challenge accepted!

In all honesty, this was probably the most fun task I’ve ever done for my blog, because I do the weekly shop for myself anyways and I love looking for tips and tricks. I shop around and I use MySupermarket so that I can find the cheapest products for the best value. Satsuma Loans have a very helpful page on their website for their handy tips and tricks! I also buy products at a certain time when they are about to be put on reduced hehe – it’s the same product for less money! Especially when you are going to eat the product that day or the next day, it makes total sense!
