Howdy everyone, hope we are all having a good day and sticking to plan! :cool:

I've been to one of the best markets possible today and pretty much got all of my weekly shopping for just less than £35!!!!!

I've bought loads of really nice fruit, veg, salad, meat, fish and eggs! I only need to pick up some yogurts and milk from the local shop now and i'm done. I'm chuffed to bits with everything ive bought, its all so fresh and huge!!

Im defo using the markets more often as opposed to Tesco, Asda etc. Money is tight because im being made redundant so im having to cut back as much as possible to save for my time job hunting as my redundancy money wont last forever.

So tesco, asda, morissions, sainsbury's and safeway - im sorry but you wont be getting £70 a week out of me anymore, it will be more like £10 for just yogurts or cupboard staples!

Just be aware that the fruit and veg from the supermarkets might last a bit longer (which may or may not be a good thing, it depends upon your point of view)
Glad you got a bargain though - wish we had a decent market near us!
