    Total spend so far = £31.94/£200. Pretty good :)

    Am the type of person that goes to the shops most days in case I'm missing a bargain *blush* so might try to work on that ... :D

    Been to Mr T today - spent £3.56, more than planned, but saw they had sesame seeds cheaper than I've seen them recently, also porridge oats seemed OK at 57p for a kg.

    Still within budget though.

    Will cook later using what we have, once I've had a ferret around to see what's there. Like others, I enjoy that challenge!
    Keeping three cats, the car and myself on a small budget, and enjoying life while we're at it!

    just popped into the supermarket today for a handful of things and came out 120 F lighter :o.

    on the positive I got some good reductions and most of the stuff has gone into the freezer for future meals. I also got lots of milk and bread (and bread flour to make bread) so I shouldn't need to go again except for fruit and veg.

    So the total is now at 248, just over a quarter of the month's money and 5 days down.
    Trying to keep in budget.

    Nearly my 4th NSD in a row, but popped into Ald! on the way home and bought some much needed bananas for 73p. I was very good and that was all I bought.
