    I would like to join in this challenge please. I have a Clubcard Plus account loaded with £400 each month but spend an additional £30 each week on milk etc. Our household is Myself, DH, 3 teenagers and 2 in KS1. The teenage boys eat me out of house and home and get through 6 pints of organic milk a day.

    I am going to try to stick to a £550 budget for this month.

    hi...i went to asda and spent...£3.80...the most pathetic weekly shop ever...should last all week though...also went to b and m bargains and got x2 big tins of pineapple (3kg) each for 99p each...oh thinks iv lost it...i thought id open a can and use some them freeze what is left in portions...might work and at that price was worth a try...also got a big tin of tomato puree that will get the same treatment but i wont be using it in upside down cakes:eek:

    spent the day cooking...a sc chilli a quiche x2 potato gratins and now a carrot cake which smells fab

    take care

    Part of the Furniture 1,000 Posts Combo Breaker I've been Money Tipped!

    Please can I join for March. I've kind of been doing it on my own for Jan/Feb and not getting on too great!

    Please put me down for £200. That's for 2 of us. I've already spent £120 on a theoretical online shop to be delivered next week but that should cover the whole months basics. After that its just a fresh shop.
