    £15.10 spent over last couple of days. Getting low on fruit and need to get some more things for mains this week. Mostly veg left in freezer now so I should be able to get it defrosted soon.
    £114.54 left from £150

    Was not planning on spending today, but ended up in Po*ndland, where I splashed out £2. Three tins of tuna, and 250g of medium roast ground coffee. The coffee may turn out to lack taste - who knows - but at that price I'll give it a go, and save my posher one for the odd special cup!

    5.75 spent today in Mr s on eggs, some cooking bits and broccoli. It really is these little shops that push the totals up!

    I spent a total of £19.65 today and yesterday in small shops at Morries, Home Borgains and Tosco, which is not bad at all for my big weekly shop. I still need to cut out a lot of rubbish I buy though, for the sake of both my wallet and my belly!

    I was especially pleased with Tosco this evening, with YS bread, delicious YS croissants and an expecially bargainous YS curry pot deal. I had a very nice chicken curry, rice and Nan for around £2. It was a very good substitute for a Saturday night takeaway and satisfied my yearning for a curry.

    I also got a voucher for £6 off a £40 shop, so I'll do my last big shop of the month there next weekend, and then survive on just a minishop until the end of the month.

    I'm really hoping to stay on budget this month, but it will take really careful planning, as I have guests in a couple of weeks, and I really want to make them welcome. They will probably be subjected to some of the delights of my freezer though!

    Please can I be included again this month, my budget will have to go up to £250 as DS is now home and Im adding more Christmas bits to shop. first week shop came in at 39.42 so leaves me just under £211 for the month. Fortunately a lot of my present shopping is done and Ive managed to do a few hours overtime at work, so that will make a difference come pay day.
    Thoughts to all. Mrs D.
    Grocery challenge £52/£150 for June.

    Popped in to my local Mr S. as I needed some yoghurt for a recipe. Bought some bananas (reduced) while I was there, also some frozen peas. Total spend £2.52 - not bad.
