Oh dear should I just give up now? I have added up my receipts and I am so far over target, plus I am now really skint! I don't quite know what happened either. I went to Morrisons to buy some tuna & ended up buying a load of other things. I also went to Sainsburys to use my £4 off £40 voucher. Although I have stocked up on things like tuna & margarine, some of it was just things that I needed for the rest of the month or things to take to my sister's on Saturday. So although I could argue that some of the things I bought could be put off being included in this month's spends & instead add them on to next month's, a lot of it wasn't, so I am just going to include it all this month. I think I need to have a serious look at exactly what I am buying & I definitely need to find the time & inclination to do some meal planning. I am certainly not getting any better at this challnge and indeed I am even fairing worse!
