I have had a minor breakthrough in trying to spend less on cat food. I have been trying for years to get my fussy girls to enjoy anything other than the most expensive food but to little avail. The best I can do is look for deals on the fancy stuff in places like Home Bargains and buy in bulk. I decided to try some premium Coshida cat food from Lidl this week though and they love it!
At 19p a pouch as opposed to the 32p minimum I generally pay that is a great saving. However, if you own a cat you will know what they are like. As soon as I buy a big quantity they will decide they hate it! I give them biscuits too to keep their teeth clean so I bought a bag of the Lidl stuff but haven’t tried it yet. Fingers crossed – that is around half the price of the usual brand.
I had a contact on SpareRoom.com who was supposed to come round today but she didn’t show. This was annoying (and rude!) as I had to wait in all afternoon when I could have been with Mr S helping him at his mum’s house. She is coming out of hospital today and needs a downstairs bedroom, so he has cleared and painted what was basically an unused junk room for her. It looks great!
I am taking dinner round for us all shortly anyway – I made chicken chasseur from a recipe in A Girl Called Jack. Let’s hope she thinks it’s better than hospital food 😀.
