    Just added up my total and thought I was way over so I was delighted to find it was £201.63! Only £1.63 over my budget, YaaaaY!
    Happy shopping for April everyone
  • Well done everyone that's in budget! I can't believe I spent so much...not sure what went wrong, just took my eye off the ball I think. Off to April thread now. Must be more careful! x

    I did it! A spend free month! Freezer is looking rather bare! And I can't wait to enjoy a coffee with milk again!!

    Interestingly, I spoke to my brother about a week ago - where he told me he was having a spend free month too!! Interesting that we both independently arrived at the same challenge at the same time. And no, we're not freaky telepathic twins!! His challenge allowed basics such as bread/milk etc - so he spent about £12 for the month.

    Anyway Mrs Ramjet comes home today - my exams all finished - for now!! :beer:

    Well done, thats amazing and just goes to show what can be done if you set your mind to it. :T

    Did final shop of the month yesterday and spent £32.61 so have come £26.94 under budget. it would have been £47.94 if hadnt helped daughter out this month due to vets bill, so am really pleased.

    so am declaring at £223.06/£250

    Off to April challenge now - Keep at it everyone and good luck.
    MARCH £62.38/250

    Ok I tried, I really did but depressingly it came to £400 when I totalled up the spreadsheets :o Tis not the weekly shop I struggle with but the top ups during the week!

    Am determined to get this under control though so will try again for £350 for April

    Well done for those who did it :T and I totally empathise with those who didnt :rotfl:
  • Total for March £178.71

    So very glad that I'm within my monthly target of £200.
