We all love a bargain and feel pretty smug when we managed to pick up reduced price items, but what do you do with the money you've saved - if anything ?
They were £1.05 and £1.25 originally, that's a saving of £2.10 ! not bad eh for two items. This by the way is why I don't make my own bread, I love the smell of a home made loaf, but by the time I've bought ingredients and taken into account the electricity it would cost to cook them, not to mention the time involved, washing up in hot water etc. etc., it's just not worth it.
These two loaves will last me up to two weeks, I wrap 3/4 slices individually and put them in the freezer because I wouldn't use a whole loaf in a couple of days.
Anyway, would you just pat yourself on the back for getting a good deal and leave the 'savings' in your purse ? this way it's difficult to know exactly what you have saved. This is what I 'try' and do, I say 'try' because I can't always afford to.
Put the £2.10 saved into a jar, you wouldn't have had it anyway if you'd paid full price for the bread. This way it builds up very nicely and by seeing exactly what you would have spent, I find it really pushes home the message of being frugal because you can see the 'rewards'.
take care peeps .......
