Morrisons Bank Holiday Challenge

So over the bank holiday weekend  amongst many others things, we needed to do our weekly food shopping - but where to shop? Fortunately we were lucky enough to be selected as a part of the #Britmums #Morissonsmum Bank Holiday Challenge!
We were sent £80 of Morrisons vouchers to do our normal weekly shop, plus buy a few extras for a 'favourite bank holiday meal' and ultimately to find out about the new 'I'm Cheaper' campaign.

"This is the start of a new cheaper Morrisons.
From today, we’ve cut the prices on over a thousand of your favourite products. Not temporary reductions or supermarket smoke and mirrors, these are new every day low prices on the things you buy every week. So you’ll notice the difference with every shop.
And although we’re cutting prices, we’re not cutting corners. You can check our pricing at
You’ll still get award-winning meat and fish, still get trained butchers and bakers, still get the best of fresh on Market Street and still get friendly Morrisons service.
Look out for the yellow markers when you shop in store and online at If it says I’m cheaper you know it’s staying cheaper."

The Shopping Experience

As we don't usually shop in Morrisons we were excited to get going and see all the lovely discounts we could get! It was a great time for us too as we've just applied a new 'Healthier Eating' decision and wanted to find some new meals to try out and this was a perfect opportunity - so armed with a shopping list, off we went!

The Delicatessen was a favourite!
Our shopping at the till..
So with our Morrisons vouchers we bought lots of;
Fresh Fruit, Vegetables and Salad
Pasta, Rice and Jars
Fresh Cooked & Uncooked Meat
We also bought ourselves some new cooking utensils and equipment for the kitchen as we needed new ones to implement our new weekly recipes! We bought 2 pizza trays, a Frying Pan, a Large Saucepan, 2 Serving Bowls, a Large Blade Knife, 4 Meat Skewers and a Set of Wooden Chopping Boards.
All in all, our Total Shop cost: £77.75

Favourite Bank Holiday Meal

We decided we wanted to work together as a family and have some Bank Holiday fun, so we decided to make our own Homemade Pizzas!
We used lots of fresh veg - (definitely had out 5-A-Day!) some yummy cheese and deli meats. We even tried a new alternative: We used Pesto as a base instead of Tomato Paste to give it more flavour!

The quality of the fresh salad and vegetables we brought was surprisingly good! I think they are the best of the supermarket picks that we've ever seen! Everything looked fresh and in season, perfect for you to just pick up and prepare!
The pizza trays were of top quality and were a serious bargain!
For this recipe we used: Sliced deli meats selection, 1x yellow pepper, 2x large tomatoes, 1/2 red onion, 5x mushrooms, 400g grated cheese, 2x Pizza bases and 2 tlbs Green Pesto.
Total cost for meal: £7.73
Cost per serving: £2.57

They both looked and tasted incredibly good and it was a much more fun way to celebrate the Bank Holiday to make dinner together for a change!
If there is one close enough to you, i would recommend to use Morissons for your main shop next time you are heading to the supermarket and we definitely will be in the future!
Thankyou to both #Britmums and Morrisons for making our weekend even better!
