‘We met through MoneySavingExpert’

As we’ve been away for the night, I’m not working on Friday and take the opportunity to get some supermarket shopping out of the way whilst Andrew is at school. We divide our weekly shop between two supermarkets – heavy, bulky or long-dated food, cleaning materials and toiletries are ordered online, but we prefer to select fresh food ourselves. Our online delivery will come Saturday morning and comes in at £45.60; the trip to the supermarket today costs £50.52, which does include some more batteries for Andrew’s toys and a Euromillions lottery ticket.
