    Morning folks, total declared for September is £496.00, which is way over, however I have no cleaning products to buy for about 6 months, freezer is still half full, and I did reduce the budget last month possibly too soon. Never mind it is still a lot less with a lot less wastage than before - fingers crossed for next month!
    Every days a School day!

    Declaring total £155.07 /£120.00 thats only £35.07 over and by£12.67 more than august i'm happy with that it's going down thats the main thing and if i was to take of the items bought but haven't actually used it would be much lower the problem i have is i like the cupboard full so i'm going to rearrange my cupboards this month and hopefully that will help one cupboard for october stuff and anything else can go aside in the winter/xmas cupboard this should help and for october anything i pick up for winter/xmas will be counted seperatly and i'm going to make a food diary for october with all food eaten and wasted hopefull it will help me see where i'm going over budget today will be another spend day couldn't carry anymore and a couple of items are xmas/birthday seperate budget oh and i forgot eggs got to make muffins to celebrate the safe arrival of my 1st grandson born at 18.09 on wednesday 29th weighing a bit over 9lb

    Morning All,

    I was working at home last night so didn't post.

    Declaring at £234.56 for September marginally under budget by a wee £5.44. :D:T

    Well done everyone for their fantastic results. :T:T:T Good on you Hippeechiq, boultdj, Billie-jo, hedgesparrow (love the name), laloopi, winchelsea, freakyogre and the list goes on and on!

    Long tall sally, congratulations on your best result since April, well done. :T

    And to those of you over your budgets, keep up the work of tracking your spends. It's wonderful to read so many of you knowing where the extra went. Don't beat youself up, assess where you are and make sure you are setting the right level for you. Onwards and upwards to October ... :D

    Take care,
    Spigs

    When my time comes, I'll be a Grandma too :)

    Both my girls were born in September, my eldest on the 27th and my youngest on the 23rd, and you're right, they were at a lovely age by their first Christmas. 3 months old, able to sit up, and old enough to be aware of all the tinsel baubles and lights, they didn't know where to look first! I have lovely memories of it :)

    You're so right about little ones making Christmas magic. It's all such a lovely innocent time.

    Blimey! This is an expensive time of year for you then, with all those birthdays and Christmas
