    Hi Everyone :flirt2:

    Have only been on SW a couple of weeks, and am doing red days with the occasional extra easy. In the last 2 weeks I feel like i have practically lived in Asda and Morrisons, nipping in every day to pick up something that i need for the next day :confused:

    So i was wondering.. what are your SW essentials that are on your shopping list every week, might help me to get mine in order for next week! lol

    :D

    I would say the same as Slimcea but would also add some lean mince, potatoes (for chips, wedges or roasts), chicken and beef bovril, pasta sauces, onions, cheese, LF fromage frais, baked beans and garlic.

    I try and plan my meals a couple of days ahead. I live literally around the corner from both a Somerfield (which is slowly changing to Co Op) and Tesco's so I like going in most days to get any bargains, especially any meat which has been reduced or is on offer.

    I also go to Morrisons once a month to get sausages :p

    Garlic is a must, lean meats, mullerlights are a must, low fat cheese, skimmed or semi skimmed milk, tomatoes any shape or form, eggs, wholemeal rice and pasta, low syn treats - skips, multi pack of buttons, alpen light bars, special k or weetabix/shredded wheat, to name a few. Unfortunately I can't advise where to shop as I don't live in the UK

    hi there I can get mugshots (thats the brand name too) out of my local heron for 29p but I know tesco do them as well but a bit more pricy. they're on the soup isle rather than the pasta/noodle isle in my tesco. there in a packet rather than a tin BTW if that makes them easier to spot

    Pretty much whats already been mentioned with the addition of some turkey mince or steaks. Im on a bit of a budget at the mo and its been a godsend as its so cheap and very versatile.

    Just a though, if you shop in morrissons, I'd reccomend their own brand version of muller lights, 3 for £1 all the time it seems and taste soooooo much nicer and creamier than the muller lights which I find too sweet, and they are free too!
    They are the 'eat smart' ones.
