Christmas shopping so far

So far I haven’t really bought a lot of the Christmas food, but I have made an extensive list of what I’ve got to purchase to cook all the food. Most of the stuff I’ve purchased have been reduced and put in the freezer for later. The first items I bought were the Christmas ham and the special soda that’s only available at Christmas and I was able to get those at a shop in London called Scandinavian Kitchen. It’s an awesome shop and café with Scandinavian foods only – amaing!

Ham – 25£

Smoked salmon – 3.70£     Reduced from 5£

Chives – 60p                       Reduced from 70p

Today’s haul!

I went to the shop for the first time since I moved two days ago and I got a lot of goodies at a great price. Plus I treated myself to a couple of prawn cocktails too! Included in the haul, but not in the picture below – due to lack of space were:

  1. 2 large Falukorv, a Swedish sausage. You can easily get four meals out of one of them. (15 kr/sausage)
  2. 2 bottles of mustard (9 kr/bottle)
  3. One large bottle bottle of ketchup (20kr/bottle)
  4. One pack of mini baguttes (5kr)
  5. One whole chicken (29:90kr/kg)
  6. 3 bags of pasta (5kr/bag)
  7. 4 small bottles of cream (2 for 15kr)
  8. 2 kg rice (15kr/kg)
  9. Two pizza kits (15kr/kit)
  10. 4 bags of grated cheese (5kr/bag)
  11. Curry and cinnamon (10kr/bottle)

These are only the good deals, I didn’t include the other things I had to buy since that would only be boring. But all in all I saved about 20-25% on my bill and I’ve got food for about two weeks. The cost would be about 250 SEK per week, or about 25€.
