    Decided to purchase some vinegar online with voucher I received from making a complaint about a very late delivery of large item... such hassle ... £13 approx spent but this does not come out of my total. Going to pickle some veg and make some chutney next week :)

    Nothing spent here today - it is too cold and rainy to go out :(

    Still just £1 / £50 for me :D

    Need shopping for the week tomorrow though, so that will change - but I have done my meal plan, and written a list :)

    Evening

    I bought the last few things for my holiday today and spent £28. Total now £31.50. £18.50 left to last me 3 days!!

    Back to work tomorrow after the long weekend so that will keep spending to a minimum.

    So much for NSD. How did I not know we were running out of cat litter? £2.78 for that, plus 17p for a bottle of lemonade to go with the wine that DH and I are sharing tonight for our wedding anniversary. I am back at work tomorrow so there's really no excuse for spending. Meals are all planned...

    Spent a bit more than expected - film £8, book £17.88:o, cafe £4.50 - total £30.38 for the day.
  • Oh brilliant. I was searching for this as I need a weekly challenge rather than monthly so perfect timing.:beer:thanks.

    Please can I join...And say £150 as that includes everything! I will start from August, so here's my spends...

    Ive spent £5 on drinks....145
    Then a big purchase at Ikea £80 ...So 65 left for the week, but it's doable as I've lots of food in.

    £150/£65

    Hi :)

    Today had to go to the local market town to call at bank etc. Printed off my delivery order which is due on Thursday from Mr Tees. Went Jo Sonsburgs and purchased those items which were cheaper. Also picked up some good yellow sticker items ... asparagus and other vegetables. Some freezer offers too. £21.92 approx

    Local chemist was next and spent 10.46 there on shampoos conditioner toilet rolls candle and some pain relief tabs. Pleased with these purchases as they were large bottles and will last us a few months.

    Lidl for 3 cereal and a cabbage £5.22

    Mr Tees where I picked up leeks and a mango reduced plus dishwasher tablets which were on offer. I could not wait until Thursday when the delivery arrives. £8.06

    Local shop £2 for 2 milk

    Good to get a few bargains.

    So that is a total so far this week of £47.66

    Delivery has to be well below the £50 mark to keep me within my budget of £100. :)

    £47.66 / £100

    Quick check in from me, as I've had a hectic first day back at work. First post all up to date, and as I suspected - I can declare a NSD for today. Work kind of gets me like that.
