I decided to no longer buy bread from June and have been making all our bread since. Has been working out fine actually and I am really pleased with sticking to that decision. It has probably saved me a few pounds too so I shall keep doing this. I make four loafs a go and put them in the freezer. So will be trying to make bread once a week to cover our needs.

Put me down for £200.00.
Amount has doubled this month due to me going away for a couple of days last month and my grandmother going into my house and turning off my Electric supply to my chest freezer and my Fridge freezer..... all spoiled and home insurance will not cover! GGGgGrrrrrr my full fridges and freezers have gone and yes i am mourning them.....

I'm afraid it seems a load of hassle to have to work that out everytime you want to get a jar or packet of something out to use?
I don't really get how buying stuff on offer and then buying it back from the shop at FP saves money (well I get there's money to go into a 3rd purse :eek:) - but surely you save just as much buying stuff on offer anyway and then keeping the money in the bank as you'll not need to buy it again for ages.
Sorry ..... maybe just me but just really don't get it TBH.:o

But it just isnt when you do it!! :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:
No idea why
Its certainly not an exact science (well not in my house).
My store is mainly household, dishwasher stuff, washing stuff, loo rolls.....nothing complicated to remember.
I get a pack of 9 Andrex off my shelf (£2 from Amazon) and put £3.50 (what I would pay in Sainsbobs) in 3rd Purse.
Exactly the same as if I had walked to Sainsbobs out got the loo rolls off THEIR shelf......I just get to keep the money myself and can use it on whatever I want :T
If I tried to keep money from savings in the bank like you said, I would simply fritter it away......

I must admit that I'm with Rising on this one. I couldn't get my head round the 2nd & 3rd purse ...not the doings of it (the principles as explained are fine), but the benefit.
I've come to the conclusion that the benefit is that you keep the savings in the 3rd (?) purse, and therefore can focus on them rather more than when the money is left in the bank.
It's really, to my very simplistic mind, another savings pot, though slightly more complex in that you've a budget in addition to the GC budget.If it works for you, that's good enough for me :rotfl: I'm going to just keep trying to spend less :A
Have a lovely Sunday everyone...another NSD for me to log in my siggy...need lots more of these to pull my budget back on track for July...but I WILL succeed! :A
