    Hi everyone, declaring £87.29 spent out of my budget of £170 for April - not as good as it looks as we were away for the last 10 days of the month, which comes from a different budget.
    Trying to jump back onto the moneysaving wagon .... :cool:

    Hope everyone is well today and the sun is shining for you where ever you are.
    Well my shopping total today was £31.85 so over from the £25 I reckoned on. :( I did pick up a few extras but only some fish, salad and coleslaw so not to bad and then nipped into W*lko's and got two 2lb loaf tins, couldnt find any 1lb ones which also wanted. I was looking for some of the paper liners for the tins but they didnt seem to stock them - anyone know where they can be brought from?

    So in all a total of £255.83 spent to date, there will be the butchers to visit on Sat and also some extra f & V and perhaps bread in the week. Have £44.17 left out of budget though to last until 28th so we will see.
    If I manage to shop within the budget budget set this first time I shall be over the moon. I know I still have a higher GC than many on here for amount of mouths to feed but even this £300 is a £100 less than normal :j Off to update signature now and then hopefully finish cleaning the shed out. Took a car full of things to cancer charity shop yesterday.
    Don't know if this has been answered yet haven't read all replies, but I buy cake tin liners from lakeland, they do all sorts of sizes and they are very good.

    Yup, I use Lakeland ones too...great, and the bread doesn't stick!! (once oiled and floured of course). I make four at a time, allow to cool, then slice and freeze the ones we don't need right away....means I only bake bread once a week...much easier! :)

  • This is the only way I can remotely keep on track so I am going to have to keep coming back :o- don't get me wrong I absolutely love reading through all the posts but my other decluttering/flyladieswork/knitting goes down to zilch! ah well never mind -saving money is the order of the day so I am declaring at £309 for April and I'll see you lovely lot on the May challenge! can't wait to start afresh (after a quick use up of all the old stuff!);)
    May you fill up the great clutterbucket of life and may all of your leaks be in cheese sauce:D
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without:cool:
