    So far spends this month £123.27p so will be very careful as went over by £20.00 last month but it is hard I am a veggie and love all the fresh fruit and veggies and they seem expensive at the moment. we are growing a fair bit but not sure it is cheaper but a lot of fun.
    Good luck everyone.

    I went shopping today and spend £42.97 at Mr T. Hopefully won't need to go until the end of the week for milk, bread etc.

    Good luck to everyone this month.

    Tesco shop today came to eighty quid... saving me a grand total of fourty from coupons and special offers :) However I'm going to be sneaky and save £40 for next month's budget as it is two months worth of dry goods so I'm all stocked up again!

    Hello everyone. Well, after my absolutely farcical May I shall be setting June target for £240 (calendar month).

    Spent £7.78 so far, mostly on toiletries, and I shall be keeping a much closer watch on what I spend week by week.

    Good luck everyone.

    My A*da delivery for this week just arrived minus the raspberry pavlova ice-cream :( frowny faces all round!

    It came to £80.03 and I bought a couple of bits this morning so spend so far is £86.03. This leaves me with £23.97 to last the week.
    Not sure if this is going to work! but I do have a lot of stuff in so we shall see...probably be OK if I stick to my plan.

    Good luck for June everybody.
    May Shopping Challenge. 10/5. Budget £310 Spent £118.25.. £191.75 left. So £9.13 a day.
