    well I went over this month, £175.60 and that doesnt even include the celebratory pizza (and starter..and dessert...) that we ordered when OH was offered a new job which is BETTER than the one he was made redundant from, better prospects, more money, nicer people!! so happy this week!!! :j

    well done to everyone who has managed to stick to their budgets! one month I will manage it.

    ive fallen off the wagon massively for last 2 months through very ill hubby in hospital and pure laziness really so can i declare £280 for june please xx
    Sorry to hear that Kaz & I'm sure it's NOT laziness that has caused a blimp in your plans((HUGS)) Hope there's good news on the way very shortly x

    On paper I'm £16:76 over my budget BUT..that does include the pack of six water filter cartridges that I found on offer in Robert Dy4s (16:99) & also not taking off £18 of vouchers. So in reality, even with the refills I have £1:24 should an emergency crop up between now & Tuesday morning :D

    Hi, overspent by £5 this month. Not too bad really as I took £30 out of the grocery money to pay for OH's birthday meal out.
    January spend = £100
    Spent =

    Hi I have been very frugal this month and shopped quite a bit from my food stores so have only used £89.64 out of my 'food money purse' so have an extra £30. 36 to go into my holiday fund for August.
    So onwards and upwards for June and I am going again with £120.00 for June as it will give me a bit of leeway if I run a bit short of anything.I am really pleased with this month as lots of bits have been used that were just sitting in the cupboard.:j:j:j:j:j:j
