    Eventually added up all my receipts and the total is £312.12. First month I have gone over but it has been a mad month for birthdays so I am determined to get back on track for July.

    Well done everyone else:T

    Well done everyone! :T

    I'm declaring at £169.83 for June please MrsM.

    So very pleased with that, £70.17 under budget this month but we need that to balance a little all the other humungous outgoings. Also managed 23 NSD so very very pleased. :D

    See you all over on the July thread.

    Take care,

    Spent £1.57 on the last day of June on a couple of bananas, 6 eggs, and a bottle of cheapie vinegar (13p from Mr S.) This means I sign off the month with £1.36 in hand - just made it!

    Must now find the July thread and get started.
    Keeping three cats, the car and myself on a small budget, and enjoying life while we're at it!

    Month ended on the 30th of June and just added it all up - left with £21.90 out of the £50. So can say we came in under budget for June (easy month for us). Going to be going back to a normal amount for July.
