    No you don't have to but you can post your numbers if you like. Otherwise you just keep track of them yourself. Same with the grocery you don't have to post it I trust you to know what you usually spend and try to get it down but 5/10%.

    Thanks Thrifty. I'll post them once i have worked them out :)

    Apple Muncher I am diary free (Vegan) and have loads of cheap, diary and gluten free recipes that I am happy to share :)

    I've got a really busy weekend ahead so am planning my 1st week now!

    I am planning to hit week 1 hard with ZERO spend days (It helps that will not have my car and will be having lifts to and from work with my hubby)

    I have 4 DD coming out (mobile phone-£25, Barclay card £65, RSPB-£8 and dogs trust £9) in week 1 and after a quick look through my cupboards I have enough food, toiletries and cleaning products to last me until next Christmas so that shouldn't be a problem (seeing all the surplus items has really made me think about my shopping habits) The not going out will be though. I usually go out for a drink at least 4 times a week and the pub is a massive part of my social life! A coupe of pints and a takeaway will be replaced with a cup of tea and a home cooked meal!!

    Good luck everyone
    Make £10 a day, October 2023 - £105/£310

    Goooooood morning.

    Only 3 days to go till we lock the doors and throw away the key, superglue shut our purses and cross the road when we see a shop.

    Everybody is listed and number up to crutch_time.

    I did a biggish food shop in Aldi yesterday that will already come out of my November budget. Didn't do it to be sneaky about NSDs but because I was off with a sick DS anyway and was able to avoid going with the whole family in tow on Sunday.

    DH is out tonight and I will do a food audit and refine my meal plan. Our new slow cooker arrived yesterday and I'll stick some soup in tonight for work next week.

    Was dreaming about stripping the wallpaper in the guest bedroom last night. Itching to do up that room. Might add a wee challenge for the first week: Try do do one project for free/very cheap. I might try and source curtain poles, paint etc on free cycle or similar. Any ideas anyone, where to get free unwanted diy materials? If sth like that exists. You know like in those TV programs where they up cycle stuff for free.
