    Week 4 (26 Nov)

    Only spent £37.44 week 4 - so I am well under budget and although the freezer is full the cupboards are starting to empty out -but this is a good thing as I have made myself use all those BOGOF jars etc that I never ever wanted and filling up with stuff I use all the time, actually had a cold sweat when I realised I only had 4 tins of chopped tins lol!

    DECLARING £162.96 this month - I am not sure how? and I've stayed out of Tesco from 26th to today (when I've shopped online for tomorrow delivery!)

    am keeping budget at £275 and I've almost got £50 in Tesco food stamps hooray!
    Slinkies 3st by summer (loss to date 10.5lbs)
    FlyMarketeers £1k by summer (sealed tin)

    Hi all,

    Sorry not been on for a while, busy with other stuff but have been trying to keep up... well done to those who have achieved their challenge this month...

    Right, I am declaring at £210.90 (was actually £170.90 in receipts but I lost one which was for £39+ so added on £40 to be safe)

    Very pleased, as well under budget and had to top right up as the cupboard was bare last week...

    I won't be in Decembers challenge as we go away next week, but will resume again in January... all the best to everyone and just incase I forget...

    Hello, I totally lost track this month, so I've just updated my sig after spending £19.00 at Mr.M's
    So I can I think declare now with £20.20p left, so that's £159.80 spent, I think?
