See your all doing it wrong. I bought just normal levels of shopping but three bottles of wine. Priorities people the pubs are shutting early 😉😆🍷
Is 3 bottles an unusually large amount? :look:

Are black beans very different to kidney beans? They don't seem common enough over here to be available in my normal local shops and there are a few recipes I wouldn't mind trying.

I need loo roll too. I presume there won't be any out-of-the-ordinary buying here for now at least though.

Black beans are approximately 36.74x nicer than kidney beans.

As I expect to move in the next month I have been eating out of my small cupboard and not replacing so I will probably have nothing to eat in October - might lose some weight finally :))

I had a nice stockpile of black beans earlier in the year :aheadofthecurve: They’re much nicer than kidney beans. And great in salad.

I am weljel of your cellar, emma_p. I hope it looks/will look like an Extreme Couponer's storage. :))

Liam, my wine advisor, (I know how ridiculous that sounds) rang me last week to let me know that the prices are rising because of Brexit. I think it's more likely that Virgin Wines want to make more profit but being suggestible, I ordered a case and put a deposit down on the advent calendar.

I bought a large pack of cumin thanks to this thread before realised I had a large unopened pack of cumin already. So the shortage may be down to me.
