    spent £9....pleased with that as included 18 toilet rolls...should last 2 weeks hopefully x

    If you squash the toilet rolls so they don't run away when you pull them, they'll last longer ;)

    NSD today :)

    My budget refreshes on Friday as DH is paid. I have overshot this months slightly, but that is ok as building my store cupboard.

    I have just submitted my shopping order for delivery on Friday. I've shopped staples for the month. and used £82 out of my £200 budget.

    Another NSD yesterday (10th). Kept to meal plan to the letter so really pleased. Little disappointed that I ran out of bread flour so had to get a few slices out of the emergency bought bread from freezer.

    Shopping day Wednesday, gosh how sad am I, I am sooo looking forward to it :) it's the only time I get out these day, avoids me spending.

    Done my meal plans for the week, written my list with the cost of the cheapest place next to the item. So going to ald! First (squash is only 95p, as opposed to other sm's at £1.35 odd. Then Mr Ms and then Mr T's.

    Have a good day all.

    hoping for another NSD today! at home with William today all day but will go for a walk later (helps get rid of the baby podge ;))

    for tea tonight is spag bol which we made at the end of last week (got 3 portions of spag bol and 3 portions of mince and onion pie base out of a 800g YS packet of mince !) very pleased to say the least!

    hoping shopping this week is just some bread and rolls as have managed to do another 2 weeks meal plan on what we have in the cupboards and freezer, and we have our very first fruit and veg box coming tomoro! :D im excited! (as usual!) hope everyone has a great day! xx

    Flo your crumble looks so delicious I just have to make one with my 3 sorry looking Bramleys sitting in the fruit bowl. I think I shall make up a big lot of crumble mix and batch freeze it.
    Should be a NSD today, as I've decided the big store cupboard delivery today is coming out of savings. That seems pretty skewed thinking I know but it all comes out of the same pot in the end.
