I think thats the right way to do it
I increase/decrease the weekly budget depending on the previous months performance. I also make sure that my budget is achievable. I know some may see this as the wrong way to do it but if my budget is higher and more realistic of what I'm likely to spend then it helps motivate me to try and beat the target, rather than setting a lower target and finding it too tight to succeed.

Denise, when I planned my budget I looked at what I had to pay for yearly (insurances gifts and the like) and divide it by 12. Then I added what I pay monthly. Then I work out a fuel budget, a family leisure budget, and mine and DH's pocket money. Then when I know what's left I look at what I'm able to spend. Some has to go to savings and some has to go to house renovation. That leaves my grocery budget.
HTHs anyone else too.

Has any one been to Tesco today... If you spend more than £30 at ours they are giving you 40 Tetley teabags and a packet of Maryland cookies for FREE. I was wondering if it was a nationwide thing.. very odd.. you fetch them after you've done your shopping/check out.
