Spent today: £0
Total spend for month so far: £3.35
I did my normal job this morning then had some casual work this afternoon. Took a packed lunch consisting of banana cake sandwiched with Lotus speculoos spread, and a really nice spicy chickpea stew – onion and mushrooms fried up with some paanch pooran spice blend, chickpeas added then simmered in a sauce of tomato passata, garlic and chillies.
Came home, made apple and banana smoothie, ate leftover cold baked potato, hummus and Finn crisp rye crackers.
Realised this month is going to be extremely boring both to blog about and actually live through unless I can plan some penny pinching adventures. I did bring some books back from the library with me, and hope to have a cooking adventure this weekend where I actually follow a recipe, hopefully using ingredients I already have, with the extra money-saving advantage of not having had to buy the book.
