We're in Cornwall visiting Calamity Jane. Some time soon I'll stop gallivanting all over the country and stay at home. Ah! Next weekend I've got nothing planned. It's going to stay that way. Unless.........!
On the way down I passed a big Aldi lorry with a banner on it saying that the chain had won an award for best supermarket in some category or another. I'm not sure if it's my favourite although I visit this handy Paignton branch often. I think Lidl has a better selection of ingredients for those of us who cook from scratch. Of course if I'm feeling really cheffy and haven't had time to pop into one of the little delis or health food shops for obscure ingredients I go to Sainsburys. But there's a store that's a bit too expensive to be the regular haunt of a cost conscious single mum.
But the juggernaut reminded me to mention something that I've thought about blogging for a while. Did you know that last year Aldi was given the very worthwhile accolade of being 'leaping bunny' accredited? This means that all their own brand household and health and beauty products are cruelty free. Making sure that everyday items have not been tested on animals is a bit of a minefield. This makes shopping ethically at a reasonable price rather easy.
