I have signed up Brit Mums Professional and recently got invited along with several other mums and dads to join the #MorrisonsMum Challenge for the first Bank Holiday in May. Super excited jumped to the chance.
We had had to take a trip to our local Morrisons store with £80 in vouchers to spend on a bank holiday shop.
I am going to be 100% honest with you, we don’t normally shop in Morrisons. I think I have done maybe twice … I found that there stuff was a lot more expensive then Sainsburys and Asda was a lot more cheaper then both not to mention I love their Free From isle.
I wanted to film this experience so that you could see what we saw around the store so I hope you like the video.
Below the video is a few photos of the day and a couple meals we prepared with the items brought from the shop.
We combined our bank holiday shop with our weekly shop.
On average our full weekly shop (4 adults & a toddler) comes to around £80-£110 depending on where we shop.
Our Morrisons shop came to £174 baring in mind we had £80 worth of vouchers and we bought extra items for the bank holiday. So our spend was within what we would normally (maybe even cheaper) spend in Asda and defiantly a hell of a lot less then what we would spend Sainsburys and Tesco.
We paid a £1 for parking which we got back from Morrisons, all we had to do was present them with our parking ticket. I also got 6p off every litre of fuel – Not any use to me because there are no Morrisons petrol stations anywhere near me *covers eyes*
The staff were friendly obvisoly I didnt know where anything was so I asked a lot of questions (I’m lazy) and they were all extremely helpful – THANK YOU!
The cashier was so sweet also she was like ‘Oh I’ve never seen you shop here before’ ahahah bless her. Don’t worry Shaba we will be back 🙂
The offer on the fruits were perfect, I’m on a healthy streak – Well I’m trying my hardest so these were perfect … great for juicing as well. Hayden loves fruits also so the more the merrier in our house.
The meat my mum was searching for in the video is called oxtail and we made a Caribbean dish called Oxtail stew out of it. It was my first attempt at making it and it was Super easy. In the coming weeks I will post a recipe on how to make it… It really is lush!
There wasn’t a BBQ outside for us unfortunately as we’re having the conservatory renovated and the garden also but I still put together some home made burgers using the 3 for £10 Mince. I only used 1 packet which made 5 burgers and the burgers are pretty thick. Everything on this plate is from Morrisons.
Thanks Morrisons, you will be seeing us later!
