  • Another £12 odd spend in Sainsbury's (mainly on gluten free food which is sooo expensive) and £13 odd in Farm Foods on milk, toilet rolls, frozen veg and choccie bars. Just realised that I only have £41 left in my budget till the last day of the month but I am determined that I will not go over my target so will be really, really careful from now till then.

    i used to work with a person who had ceoliac disease and they had gluten free biscuits/loaves on prescription, not sure if this work work out cheaper if you had to pay for your scripts though..

    Well, I haven't reported in for a while as I'm ashamed of myself!

    After all my talk about having enough in the freezer to last I gave in on Friday (after loads of NSD's) and went to Mr T's. It was a mixture of being bored and fed up, with the weather and the fact OH hadn't been at work for 4 weeks. Anyway, I managed to spend £37.24:eek: Bad for me as I was hoping to save some money to put towards the fuel bills.

    Anyway, only dog food to buy this week. That will be about £30 so will just squeeze in if I dont get fed up again!!

    Don't be too hard on yourself. You have begun to change your habits:T:T but it takes time and most of us have to learn new habits gradually. And you've obviously had lots of NSDs so pat yourself on the back:beer:
  • Thanks Poppy-glos, I do get bread, pasta & pizza bases on prescription for my DS but I was stocking up on sausages, beef burgers, steak pies and fish fingers for him. He could also get biscuits on prescription but he's not very keen tbh or even on the hm ones that I make occasionally. Fussy little so and so!

  • Hi everyone - updated my total with spends from Ald! and [email protected] today - Ald! didn't have any grapes or blueberries from the Super 6 so I was a bit disappointed with that but we have Clementines, apples and bananas indoors to use up anyway.:cool:

    Dinner tonight is Pork and apple Sausages, mash, carrots, parsnips, HM giant yorkies and loads of Gravy - no pud needed as we should be full after that lot.;)

    Confident that we'll come in under budget as my month finishes on Tuesday and should only need some more Milk and F&V before then.:D

    Have a good evening everyone.;)
