Back at the end of May, I took photos of my kitchen cupboards, fridge and freezer as I was determined to eat up some of the stocks.
Here’s the original post: store cupboard stock check challenge.
This is the result a fortnight later – some progress, but still a way to go!
|Main food cupboard before|
|Main food cupboard afterwards: a few tins and bottles gone, some sugar added|
|Big fridge before|
|Big fridge afterwards: bit less, no fruit juice, more jam jars of leftovers|
|Freezer afterwards: Bye bye pizza, ice cream and sausages,but still full|
|Small fridge before|
|Small fridge afterwards: loads of elderflower cordial, not much else.|
|Top of the green cupboard before|
|Top of the green cupboard afterwards: jam and cereal decimated, children complaining|
|Mantelpiece afterwards: fewer raisins? I’m clutching at straws here.|
|Dry stores before|
|Dry stores afterwards: fewer potatoes, more cake (bonus)|
|Hidden snack stash before|
|Hidden snack stash afterwards: more drinks, different crisps|
I haven’t posted new photos of the herbs and spices and mug cupboard because there’s no real difference. We also have a big 12.5kg bag of potatoes in a cupboard which I’ve forgotten to photograph both times.
During the fortnight, I made three shopping trips for additional fresh food to stretch the supplies, some of which has made it past the ravening hordes and into the stocks.
Here’s the shopping:
|Morrisons on Day 2: £6 vouchers, £38.39 cash, daughter extra|
|Co-op on Day 3: £7.07 cash|
|Co-op on Day 11: £30 vouchers, 14p cash|
The only other items bought were a bargain leg of pork and coconut, some citric acid to make elderflower cordial and a load of Fruit Shoots, which cost £13.29 altogether.
Running total after 2 weeks
Cash spent on food: £58.89
Vouchers spent on food: £36
Total value: £94.89, of which £39.44 has yet to be eaten.
