I have been mulling over the comments on the last post today and looking into some other sources for items we need to buy.
There is a seed bar which I have mentioned here before which I eat daily to help with my IBS, which is so much better since last year's homeopathy. The only local retailer which sells it is Tesco, so I have looked at the manufacturer's website and found out that I could buy it there. That will help enormously, even if I would have to buy a three month supply to make it cost effective - but I will save £23 on Tesco's prices, so that will be a bonus.
I'm still working on the details of this challenge, and I think that it will need a bit more consideration before I launch it on 1st May, but I am certain that it is a goer, and I will share it with you.
The first thing I am going to do towards it later this week is to make a master list of all items we buy, and look at online comparison sites to see what other supermarkets and shops charge. It'll be a place to start.
I'd be glad to hear your ideas for staying away from supermarkets in general...
