Catch up day

Today I haven't set foot outside of the house. I have been busy cleaning and sorting. Have taken advantage of the nice weather and washed two of my winter coats which are quite thick and heavy. To be honest I am sick of the sight of them. I have had them since 04/05 but they are so warm I am loathed to get rid of them.
I have been sorting out my daughters old clothes. I have decided to have a car boot in the next few weeks and I will try and sell lots of stuff (clutter) so I've had to take out the name labels out of my daughters clothes. They are the embroidered ones so I can use them again ! My husband went to the supermarket yesterday and found 5 twin packs of salmon fillets for 79p each , total £3.95, which should have been £4 each. Not bad for 39p a fillet, we love salmon in our house so they will be gobbled up soon. Today he has come back with a pack of duck breast fillets at 59p reduced from £4.32. We are working our way through the freezer at the moment, having lots of chicken dishes from the mountain of reduced chicken we got a few weeks ago. Now the holidays are over I am going to get back into the meal planning and cut down on the big supermarket shops.


  1. Wow! Could your husband go grocery shopping for me! I would give up chocolate before salmon-that's how much I love it.

    You sound really organised with prep for your car boot sale.

    Sft x

  2. Glad to see that you have trained your husband well with the shopping. Mine thinks he's got a bargain if he spots Ben & Jerry's ice cream on offer! LOL

  3. You have been a busy bee! great idea about the name tags, why don't more people do that? x

  4. Found your blog via saving for travel - so hello! I love salmon - that's a great haul at a fab price!

  5. Wow, I wish my OH was as responsible as that when shopping! The only offers he's interested in are the ones where wine is on special :(

    K xx

  6. Glad to see hubby is so well trained. I think we do rub off on them!. I love catch up days where nothing pacific is planned. x
