Don't know how I'm going to manage in the next couple of weeks, promised OH he could go to the German market in Birmingham soon, we're doing Thanksgiving dinner for some American expat friends and now OH has gone an eaten an entire stir fry packet sauce (that would have served 2-3 people) to himself for lunch. We're also low on cereal despite me buying a month's worth two weeks ago because he can't stop munching on it all day. How do I get him to stop doing that as I can't afford to keep adding more stuff onto my top up shops?

Nimeth - is your hubby not at work?
When my DP is not at work (day off - studying - working from home) he always has to have some sort of cooked meal for lunch. Whereas, during the week its just myself and the baby at home (bigger DD at school) and i will have just a sandwich, or toast or some leftovers from the fridge.
He also doesn't realise that i don't have endless amounts of money to spend on food

Poor you! Sounds like my husband! He'll come in and pinch cheese out of the fridge or 3 slices of ham. When I point out that it could have filled the kid's sandwiches the next day he looks at me as if to say-can't I even snack on something! He tries to be a healthy eater and asked me not to buy biscuits any more (a long time ago). I didn't buy them for ages but he is rather partial to biscuits & so now I have gone back to buying them but only the value ones (approx 35p a pack) and perhaps offer him a cup of tea when he gets in & then a biscuit goes well. Also, I make his lunch for him each day so that I can try & give him what I want him to have!
