My Kind of Shopping

Our recent grocery shopping has been mostly happening at Morrison's.  Normally I prefer shopping around and changing the supermarket each week, depending on offers - but shopping at Morrison's in order to take advantage of their Christmas Bonus offer has been OK, especially as the £40 required weekly spend is not our whole grocery budget, leaving a bit available for any fresh produce top-ups, or Lidl's half price weekend meat offers ;o) 
But then we got a £10 off a £50 spend voucher for Sainsbury's.... And as we only need 9 vouchers over a 10 week period to qualify for Morrison's Christmas bonus, we thought, well.... It'd be rude not to.
So here it is - £50.99 worth of groceries.
And here is what we actually paid for it:

Yup, a whole 49 pence.  £17.50 worth of Nectar points (gathered mostly through credit card use - credit card paid in full each month - and AdPoints);  £23 worth of Luncheon Vouchers (earned by answering surveys)..... And all that shopping up there ours for 49p.
I must shop like that again some time soon !


  1. Well done you - that is the kind of shopping I like too!

  2. It really does show how all the surveys and boring videos pay off.
