Note: Butcher's selection beef mince is available for £1.91, entirely your choice.
If you think you'll be hungry through the week, the McCain Micro Chips are on offer, 2 for £3. You get a choice of straight cut or crinkle cut as well, fancy.
For the tortilla wraps, Dina Khobez wraps were £0.68 for me, but they could be a regional item. Keep your eyes open for cheaper in your area.
So the 'butter' I bought was actually something called 'Reduced Fat Spread', a suitably miscellaneous name for a miscellaneous product. I can't believe it's not butter (is also on offer for £1.50 per kg). It's also important to note, you may have butter left over from the week before, so let's not go overboard, shall we?
Pepsi is almost always cheaper than Coca Cola, though I personally prefer Coca Cola. Watch out for the new 1.75l bottles; almost double the price of a 2l Pepsi bottle. Choose between the numerous offshoots of Pepsi. I went for regular; I despise Max.
Living on a smartprice diet isn't particularly thrilling, I know, but it is economical. With the mad savings you've made on your weekly shop, perhaps you could buy some spices to improve the mince, or some raisins to put in with the rice pudding.
