Hi Katie. Not sure if you are new to the thread-if its your first GC or not? Well if it is, I wouldn't cut it down too low. I also dont know ages of your family but Im guessing maybe you have 3 little ones? Personally I wouldnt include the nappies, wipes etc but its really up to you how you do this-we all have our own ways on here. Nappies and wipes arent too easy to cut back on as they are so necessary. Is this a 5 week month for you? Better to allow too much at first and then cut back otherwise you get left with a sense of failure. Try to make your own babyfood and so forth-though you may already do that. Keep to own brands for the the baby stuff unless its a special offer. Try to stock up on bogofs. Good luck!
thanks for all your help - i usually have £60 pw for the shopping -yes its a five weeker for us so have only dropped want i usually spend by a tenner a week. (hopefully can squirell (sp) that away for christmas) No not three little ones - 15yrs old, 6yrs old and a 2yr old they all eat the same meals. Have started to do weekly menus and that seems to help, but any tips always gratefully recieved. Again thankyou
Until Sunday 10 July
