I have pushed everyone this week into eating every item of food in the freezer (Not fish in batter again Mum) and it is has been defrosted. I have two plans in mind. We have just had a really good little store open up near us with a big variety of food at really good prices so with that, the Co-Op, a butchers, bakers and a little farm shop a short walk down the roads I must be able to buy our food daily at good prices. It will make a nice change from the same old weekly shop. I'm really looking forward to the challenge. If I can keep down the daily budget instead of a weekly one I will buy an item of Christmas food every day for the freezer or store cupboard.
Strangely I actually feel a bit of pressure taken off already as I don't have to think ahead to plan meals for the whole week just for each day. I love going up to the farm shop as I take Bud with me and a little backpack for my shopping so I'm looking forward to doing that every few days. I suppose the hardest part will be fitting it all in the day but at least I'll be supporting the local shops even more than we do now. I shall record my progress.
