Please please - we do not fail, we look at what we've done, we learn and we move on - everything we do is a "learn" for us - never ever a fail, this is a challenge - long term - we will never get it right the first, second or third time. Minnie2 - you are doing so well, you are looking at what you spend and learning about your shopping habits, it took a while to get it wrong so it will take a while to get it right, please be proud of what you have done so far, you are getting it right, right, right. Take a big breath and start again. I get it wrong nearly every month but always start again, so do lots of other people on here!! We are always here to listen and help, use us as your sounding board and keep on trying - lots of hugs, Helen x

Realy feel like swearing*******:mad:. My mother gave me some cherries, which I love but don't often but 'cause of cost and I have broken my front tooth on a stone! Have to see if I can get emergency appointment at dentist tomorrow. That will be a fun (and probably expensive) way to spend Friday.
Will probably feel very sorry for myself tomorrow.

Just looking at my budget and we have spent £181.91/190 on food, cat food and toiletries. This means i have £8.09 left and 10 days to sort everyone out.
I think this is going to be tough but do-able. I will need more milk and some fruit for the pack ups, but i think if i made the bread i might get away with it. We do have some part baked baguettes and also some naan breads in the pantry, so i would maybe only need to make some rolls for DHs lunch or get organised and bake the baguettes so they had time to cool .
Oh if i only didn't love my bed so much i might be more motivated to get up and do it.
If i am struggling then i have £5.50 of clubcard vouchers but i would rather save them for deals.
