    Hi everyone, just popped in to declare my total at £249-58. This is a whole £40-42 under budget! I am not sure how I managed this, except we have been away two weekends and eaten out a lot more than usual! It's not a s good as it sounds because we have spent a lot of money what with DD2 getting married - even though we were't paying for all of it. And it's not over yet as we have a blessing and another party in December, so I will have to keep a tight rein on things for November!

    Off to ponder my next month's budget...

    I'm very excited as I'm declaring £128.36 for October :j:j:j
    My budget was £140 :D

    Am very chuffed with myself. I'm struggling to find anything to go on my shopping list for this month. I think this may be due to a massive delivery from approved foods :o We'll be living on cous cous, cuppa soup and rice for many months to come :rotfl:
