Morning allKAAT_LADY hope you had a good nights sleep I've started myself off too, imagining what user names look like- whatever keeps us amused zoe260373 hope you are feeling a bit better this morningdenisefowler thanks you've reminded me I ought to keep an eye on freecycle for freezers have been watching a few on ebay but they are going for nearly £50 a time
Welcome savingpennies we did exactly the same as you- we were finding things a bit tight start of this year so cancelled Sky (only extravagance) and cut bills I had thought we couldn't do much about our £500 ish grocery bill- since lurking and then joining this board have noticed a big difference and things feel a bit better again despite fuel and food prices. Everyone is very friendly and helpful too
Can anyone post me to a fool proof crumble topping for tonight (free rhubarb from neighbour's mum very MSE ) have made them a bit soggy in past!
Sorry ended up being long!!

Hi everyone,:wave:Kaat_Lady - the caulis look lovely...
Just updating my sig.. have only £9.80 left but that is only till Friday when i get paid and we don't need anything else - hopefully if i can keep my money in my pocket I should come under budget again this month... Amazing really because i've stocked up on enough cat food to last 6 months!!
Have been baking today - Naan breads, Mrs M's tortillas, buttermilk pancakes(from the butter i made the other week) and a loaf of wholemeal.. feeling very pleased with myself as they are all lovely - thanks to everyone who posted the recipes and OH is loving all the food he's geting!
You guys are such an inspiration... when i stand in the supermarkets these days i look at everything and think "well i know theres a recipe to make that on GC boards so i'm won't be pay £2 for it!!"
