    Does anyone else get that weird sense of not shopping...

    I spent a good amount of my week popping in to Tesco for bits and bobs... now i won't need to. It just feels incredibly surreal not having to go.

    Think i need to get out more :giggle:

    I'm loving it as i have saved a FORTUNE!! My OH has just been popping to Asda to buy a few bits for his dinner (he's doing his own version of WS!).

    Any money saved can buy new smaller clothes!!

    I must admit... i felt a bit bad forking out £100 for the bumper box BUT i would have spent much more than that a month just popping in for bits and bobs. So really it was the best thing i ever did!

    OH is living on spaghetti and toast. Because i'm no longer cooking... he won't eat. HAHAHAHA

    Exactly ames! When i really sat down and thought about it i would prob go to asda two or three times a week spending 20 pounds here and thirty pounds there.

    I calculated i spent around 60/70 a WEEK in asda. That is roughly a whopping 240/280 a month.

    Ok so i still have to buy nappies, baby milk and household items but even so.......

    The 100 pounds of shakes is a huge saving.

    I am going to be starting the diet next week, and at first I thought a £100 seemed like a lot to fork out. But the more I think about it I'm actually going to be saving a fortune. I can easily spend £50/60 a week on food. So thats just over a £100 straight away. And because I won't be buying any alcohol-thats another £120 easy.

    I still enjoy going shopping for my husband and daughters and still love cooking, i have cooked from day 1, was a little tough but luckily hasnt bothered me that much, only once was i incredibly tempted to eat what i was preparing when making their packed lunch with fresh bread rolls, which smelt soooo good.

    The smell of bread is what does me in too, I am fine with everything else.

    Sadly the smell of the bread aisle of the supermarket is pervasive throughout the shop! So I now mostly avoid food shopping, have been either doing it online or sending my husband. I still plan what he eats and cook it for him, so I just send him with a list lol.

    It is odd not going shopping as much.
    But I quite like it now :D
    I reckon it has saved me a few quid too :)
    Although, when I have shopped, whilst doing a few WS days, I have bought waaaay too much, so I need to figure out a correct amount for those days :eek:

    How about Crumpets? Or Croissants? Or Brioche? Or perhaps a nice Scone?

    :giggle: reminds me of Talky Toaster from Red Dwarf...

    Talky Toaster was hilarious! He did nothing but talk about bread products...

    I'd kill for a bag of peanut M&M's right now!

    Peanut, gross!! Haribo or a Chinese but as we know nothing tastes better than being thin. I think of summer days looking buff with the shirt off and the food thoughts go.

    Gonna Google Talky
