    Hi All,

    I know I'm a bit late, but can I join in and say £100 for me and DH for January please...this is for all food and toiletries. Made tomato and basil soup for lunches this week and going to try a new recipe this evening for potato crust quiche as I'm not too keen on pastry crusts.....:D

    but i have half a can of coconut milk left to use up
    I use coconut milk in sponge cakes - just omit the cows milk or one of the eggs in the recipe and replace the vanilla extract with lime or lemon juice :)

    hiya all

    id saved this thread and had been viewing each day but wasnt sure what id go for , so for this first month going to go for 300

    thats for 3 adults and a child

    im planning to do a freezer, fridge and cupboard listing and then as i add or run out my shopping list will be added to daily. (well thats a bit of an inspiring thought from me, lol hope it works though would be helpful):j

    im going to also include toileteries and then see what was spent on that and what was spent on food, on a seperate note im going to be doing the budget sheet from the site and see where i can account for stuff to the penny.

    it s a new way of doing this budgeting for me so might as well give it a good shot from the start and pick up tips as i go along this month,

    loved all the tips so far ive read here thank you

    have a fun day catch up laters MAZ:beer:
