The Dog Eats The Leftovers

The Dog Eats The Leftovers

About This Blog

This Blog is meant to be a light-hearted look at how a parent as to navigate his or her way through life whilst bringing up two teenagers on a very limited income. We want to share what we have learnt and hopefully help anyone else out there struggling to make things work in a seemingly chaotic world. I don't always get it right and I am certainly not perfect.....

Feeding time

Noel came downstairs today with a lean and hungry look and said “Well, I'll have a pot noodle then. There's nothing else to eat. You've got nothing to snack on”. This was said in his usual downward inflection whilst I am unpacking yet another three bags of shopping with food in. I then looked in the cupboard and pulled out an empty bread-stick packet, two empty egg boxes and a biscuit box with a wrapper in. In the fridge was an empty grated cheese bag and a juice bottle with a thimble full of liquid in it. “So, I'm supposed to be a mind reader am I Noel? I'm supposed to guess when the bags and boxes are empty.” he said “Well, all you've got to do is look inside and you'd see they were empty. I left them there to remind you.” I suppose he had a point.

The question is.......would it be cheaper to do a big shop? Or is it easier and more cost effective to shop by the day and just buy the basics like pasta, rice and sauces etc from Aldi? I've given up on a meal plan. We all eat different things and sometimes we eat at different times.

Do you know what? I don't really care. I hate unpacking it anyway, I only eat vegetables and the dog eats the leftovers and the the guinea pigs are eating the grass. I must be making a saving somewhere.
