The best thing about minimal shopping is that when you get home with your one bag and unpack it, there is the space to put everything away in the gaps left by their predecessors. There's no rejigging of cupboards or struggling to put new stocks behind old ones so that things get used in order. I think it's this that I find the most satisfying.
Hopefully in a few months I won't be buying cucumbers, lettuces or tomatoes, but we'll be back to eating our own again. The sun shining outside the window as I sit typing this makes me feel it's not too far away. I do have a few various leaves in the polytunnel but when I saw the display of lovely crunchy Iceberg lettuces at just 49p each I was just totally tempted.
No vouchers spent this time. I thought I had a £3 voucher, but when I looked in my purse the lowest denomination was £4.50, so as you can't get any change from vouchers I had to pay with just cash ... ooops!!
