    Had to get milk again today , and some bits I've run out of, also is SIL birthdate tomorrow so got her card out of GC and as I'm doing so well got her a lucky dip lotto also out of GC...
    Can go into 2nd weeks envelope tomorrow and I've put 2nd £10 in my Xmas club! :rotfl:
    :money: I will never be rich but I'm happy :rotfl:
  • I spent £22.75 on pizza express pizzas for everyone and a magazine for me, I need to do a fairly large shop tomorrow, I think it will be mainly pet food though as I think I have quite a lot of food left in the freezer and stock cupboard for us.

    £1.60 in Sains. Bt will also have to pick bread and milk up when's I get back from my first diet class!

    This month has been a bit of a learning curve as I never really know what I spend and I did try in Sept or Oct but bowed out before the end of the month. Reckon I'm going to come in waaaaaay over budget this month but at least I will have a figure to lower in future months

    I've just booked part of my summer hol so I really need to get a grip with the spending

    No spend day today for me, hoping my partner managed it too so I can update my signature!

    Will be another graze box tomorrow and a mini shop to get a couple of things as I'm making a birthday cake for my Dad on Saturday :)

    Doh! He couldn't resist the temptation to buy a packet of crisps out the vending machine! Only 30p but a spend is a spend so fingers crossed we can make it on Friday! :)

    First proper shop of the year. Mr A delivered and I managed to keep it down to just under £40 including delivery. Got mainly fruit, and veg fresh and frozen. Should be set up now for about two weeks with what is still in the freezers. Here's hoping.

    Hi - some of the more obvious ones are:

    NSD - no spend day
    YS/RTC - yellow stickered/reduced to clear items

    HTH (hope that helps!)

    Just trying to think of some others:

    DH - Dearest Husband
    DW - Dearest Wife
    OH - Other half
    DD - Dearest Daughter (therefore DD2 would be the second daughter)
    DS - Dearest Son
    GDD/GDS - Great grand daughter/son
    FIL/MIL - Father/Mother in law

    Mr A - Asda
    Mr T - Tesco
    Sainsbob, Mr S - Sainsburys

    Hope that helps. ;)

  • I forgot it was my turn to supply the milk at work, so 90p on the way in today... Luckily that's all I've spent today, so not too bad! Sadly, it does mean that I didn't get the NSD that I was hoping for... But there's still tomorrow :)

    Just to warn all of you breadmakers out there...A fews days ago I went to asda to buy strong white flour as it was only 60p a bag. Unfortunately the shelves were bare.

    Today I went to try again and it has gone up to 80p per bag :shocked::shocked::shocked:!!!! So the bad harvests are beginning to hit. Obviously I didn't buy it, I nipped to Tesco and bought it there as it's still 66p a bag, but I'm sure all the supermarkets will soon follow.

    Thought this may help someone.

    Thanks for this ^^^:) Although, I did hear a news report yesterday which said that although, Barley and Potato crops had been hit by the weather, Wheat had not and that this would mean meat and bread prices would not be affected by the huge food price hikes. I don't think I agree with this. Judging by my shop this week in Mr S*, I don't think it will matter whether crops have been badly affected by the weather or not, the prices will still go up and up:mad: Having said that, their white bread flour was still 66p per bag, but the other branded varieties were much higher.:(

    A NSD for me. We are on day 2 of our HM veggie soup which is yummy, one more day left.

    Can't remember the exact price, but I'm sure Lidl's price for flours including strong flour were good. Will have to check next time I pop in. Haven't bought any flour for a while. :)
