    Good Morning,

    Thanks to the usual suspects for this shiny new thread - I just hope can get a grip in March cos I haven't been doing a much as I could (having OH at home all day doesn't help, though he tries to be good about snacks).

    Onwards and upwards I think......

    Morning all
    Can you put me down for £110 for march please
    Not looking forward to my food budget this month, 1 its tighter than normal and it's a slightly longer month and 2 OH is on his hols meaning more food being consumed:o. Not that he's a pig just a constant snacker, i'll have to 'find' some jobs for him to do to keep him occupied;)

    Good Morning everyone, and welcome to a brand new month of saving our hard earned cash,and happy St Davids Day to all our Welsh chums.I love a new month, and before me stretches a new challenge over the next 31 days.I have declared at £120 for March, and was well within this in February I am happy to say.So its turning out the cupboards and freezer this week and making new menus to use up all the bits that I can.I seem to have a large stash of sardines in one of my cupboards ( a friend gave me 9 tins plus 9 tins of pichards,I think she was just having a declutter too) that I am determined to work down this month so any ideas or recipes would be welcome.
    Cheers Chum onwards and upwards

    Working hard to get rid of our debt.
  • I would like to go for £300 this month please
