Our co=op only ever reduces by that amount as a final reduction!! Never any bargains to be had in there apart from the offers they have and then only some of them are any good, they are my local shop and I would use them more if they were cheaper

I've got a bit ahead of myself again - total is already £242.67/£400 and I've got another @£40 As*a shop coming today plus a few local bits I need.
I keep having a £100+ Sa*ns shop at the beginning of the month to get the free delivery but I think this messes me up as I spend too much in one go without planning it well enough.
So after today I will have just over £100 for the rest of the month which does not fill me with hope but I'll try! Today I'll do a plan for the rest of the month based on what I have and then [STRIKE]fail to follow it as usual [/STRIKE] stick to it like my life depended on it.

This month I have been keeping a track of my spends as I wasn't really sure what I had been spending on groceries as we have got away from our previous OS ways and I have been diagnosed as coeliac.
Totted everything up last night and it came to £550:eek::o:eek: I think there might be a couple of little spends not included too as my other spreadsheet is on my work PC. I am shocked nad horrified. DH and I have had a good chat about this as it is this overspendign that is having a knock on effect on other areas as we don't have the money to do other things with it. The cupboards and freezers are full and this spend only includes £4.70 on a chippy tea.
