  • Hi I'm declaring £343/£360 for Feb. It was a shorter month which helped and I use some of the shopping I bought in Jan.
    I must have previously spent alot more than this without realising, as this still seems like alot, but I have been much more frugal, even making the kids eat the really cheap morrisons value cornflakes at about 40p a box! When I get the toddler potty trained- I will save on nappies!!

    GC: Jan £383/£360 Feb £343/£360
    March £241/£360 monthly spend

    Declaring £120 for February. Over budget I know, but I didn't factor in DH's birthday. Cooked his favourite meal of lambs shanks and had a bottle of wine (cheaper than going out, he he)

    January was meal planning month
    February was portion control

    Hoping to learn lots more this month
