  • Well I have till tomorrow till the end of my month and hope not to spend anything

    I have spent a total of £345 (Under Budget) on food etc this month – I had gone over however I set myself up with a 2nd purse and used my receipts to work out how much spare stock I have this month with offers. So it has put me back on track – feel like I have cheated a little but mid way through the month I decided it was a good idea as I bulk purchase sausage from a local Man and go to the Indoor Market for my Chicken (Much cheaper than SM) as well as picking up good offers

    I plan to reduce my spend this next month by just £5.00 per week, but I think small challenges is better than big

    Thanks for the support

    Hi everyone,

    I can't declare this month as have lost all my spreadsheets and accounts for the past three years. Long story that I won't bore you with now. I still hold a little hope that the files may be retrieved but it's going to be a while before I know for certain.

    So I would definitely have been under target but can't give a figure at the moment.

    All the best,
    Spigs

    What a nightmare for you. Here's hoping that the files can be retrieved.

    Thanks valerie,

    Lesson learnt to back up. Just got to find reasonably priced external drives now.

    All the best,
