    What's fat club Beanielou?

    I still haven't spent anything. I'm not sure how to get around the lack of carrots for ponio this evening as I raided the fridge yesterday. Extra apples I guess!
  • Morning folks! Another win on the pub quiz last night, £70! I think the other teams are starting to hate us. We didn't get much of a clap for winning :( It did meant that we cleared our bar bill so last night was free! Plus there's now £402 in the night out fund.

    Anyway, this week is going pretty well. I've spent £16.50 on various odds & sodds like lunch & coffee. Not got any spendy plans this weekend as my friend hasn't got back to me about lunch. Hopefully going to be a green week!

    DD265~Fat club is Slimming world.
    I bought a new flavour of hifi bar & a wee raffle ticket.

    A NSD today.
    So think that means I am green with a total spend of 4.45 out of 10.00

    Evening all

    Well Wednesday was a spend day. Ooops, after I had said it wouldn't be. Yesterday was a NSD. Spend today got some fruit for hubby, then in my change had 2 x £2 coin and a 50p coin, which we are saving for the little man. So they went into his money boxes, that's the quickest £10 I've ever spent. :D

    Well I have £14.24 left.

    So £35.76 / £50 yay me. :D

    Am setting £40 for next week as that's all I have available until payday. Hoping not to need petrol.

    Will set up the new thread sometime tomorrow.

    Well done on the green weeks so far.

    Sorry about the red splodgethefirst. Onwards and upwards for next week.

    Well done on another win Fiona

    I think we've just managed to find a quiz that's pitched at our level - we've never done this well in any other quiz! We have got an arch rival team though that we seem to beat by a few points every week. They tried to argue over the scores this week!

  • Hi!

    This week I had a massive overspend! Ended up going out last night with some old work mates and managed to spend £14! Not bad for a night out in Chelsea but an overspend.

    So this week I'd like to declare £29! I'm going to set a budget of £8 for next week as it's a very busy work week so won't have time to spend any money hopefully.

    Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy the summer!

    Cheers
    Casper
