I love saving money, as you may already know! For me £1 saved is the same as £1 earned, even if it does take a little more time sometimes. I love getting the most out of my money but sometimes convenience outweighs the moneysaving for me. For a while the convenience of online shopping made us veer back to using Tesco on a weekly basis. Then I noticed that our spend was creeping up and up, despite not buying many more treats at shopping. As Daisy has FPIES we need some specialist food with our weekly shop and most of the items I wanted were available in Tesco. This made it even more convenient for us. Until one day I was spending £60-£70 on a weeks shopping, with not much to show for it… This sent me back to Aldi and inspired me to write this post – what happened when I decided to swap Tesco for Aldi? Did I really save money? Did I use a lot more time?
