    sorry everyone have been AWOL for a couple of weeks :o got abit lost after feeling poorly, but have found my way back home :)

    Total for november was £111.99 so £11.99 over but cupboards are groaning under the weight of food inc things for xmas so I must be able to do it in December!!

    December's budget is £100 again inc any extras for xmas of which I have spent £15.99 on puppy pads and £1.20 on a gooey chocolate brownie:eek: so £17.19 altogether.

    not sure if this thread is still going so will post it on the dec challenge when I find it, aswell.

    Lost a bit of track but think I came in at about £140 although not too pleased with myself for not keeping on top of things, and planning what to buy. Think im addicted to buying food !
    However I do have plenty of meat in freezer so will have to repeat the mantra to myself " dont buy meant, only veg " for December !
  • I'm declaring a final November spend of £70.93, so well within budget - but that shouldn't really have been hard!:D

    Interesting for my first month too £70 is about what I thought I spent most months, so will strat trying to whittle this away now. Right off to pledge on the December board.

    Total debt: [STRIKE]£9473.62[/STRIKE] £7,384.87 22% PAID

    Declaring £55.87 for November grocery spending. That's us very well done! We suspect the grocery bill would have been higher if we haven't been snowed in for the last week of November though:)

    I'm very, very late declaring this one - but I've only just finished updating my accounts for November (totally lost the plot around 10th of the month!)

    Had a budget of £81, and managed to spend a staggering £224.40 which is the figure I need to declare :eek:

    However, £145 of this was stocking up on stuff for next year (from App F00ds, BBFL, and Mr T with their baking offers plus a lot of other long-life items as I had a £6 off £40 spend voucher). So I only spent £79.40 on 'general' grocery spends, which also included an unusually high amount of tinned veg and tea bags due to the snow forecasts.

    As a whole over the month, my £224.40 bought me goods worth £1029.06. And the £145 spent on stockpile goodies got me items worth £901.59 :)
    Grocery Budget : January £155. Spent £33.75 in shops + £0.00 from stocks = £32.45
    Grocery Budget : 2021 £1825. Spent £33.75 in shops + £0.00 from stocks = £32.45
