Saving on your online weekly shop

I’ve found the best way to stick to my shopping budget each week is by doing the shop online. That way, I’m never tempted by special end of the aisle offers for items that, quite frankly, I don’t need. I can also chop and change my basket if I go over budget and can quickly work out whether I have all the ingredients I need for that week’s meal plan. I also detest visiting supermarkets so, all in all, this works out well for me!

Generally, I try and find the cheapest delivery slot for a time I know I will be in midweek, which usually ends up costing around £3. Some slots (mostly weekends) can attract a whopping £6 or £7 premium. Whilst only a few pounds, this mounts up over the course of the month to around £12-£15. So, last week I took out a free trial of Tesco’s Delivery Saver Plan. I chose the any time option which, at £6, would still save me a fair whack a month and also means that I can benefit from free standard delivery on F&F clothing and click and collect on Tesco Direct orders over a tenner (these have recently started attracting a £2 charge).

I’m pretty chuffed so far, as I can order anytime and go for the more expensive slots I usually shun! I will take out the full £6 subscription when the month ends (you can get cheaper midweek plans).

Do you all prefer online shopping?


Shaving and saving

I’m well on track for saving more on the total cost of my weekly shop this month, which should funnel a few more pounds into the moving fund. This week I managed to shave £10.00 off the weekly spend, so put out the bunting!

Keeping to shopping online has kept me moving in the right direction and I snagged a couple of online codes to add a couple of nice freebies to my basket, which may benefit anyone who shops with Tesco.


To grab a yummy looking Goodfelllas Deli pizza add code GRKK7L  when checking out but be quick, as this is a limited offer.

To get £1.00 off a 1 litre box of Almond Breeze (currently reduced from £1.50 to £1.00, so free!) enter code XXHN74 at check out or grab a copy of the latest Tesco magazine and use the hard copy coupon in-store. I make my own smoothies every day to combat my crazy early morning starts, so am looking forward to using this in my little blender.

Follow me on Facebook or Twitter for more discount codes and bargains. Happy hunting 🙂
