  • Please put me down for January 2019. £50 for this & each month. Doesn't sound like a lot, but I live alone & do quite well at cooking, taking a pack up to work etc. I also bulk buy toiletries & household, & £50 goes quite far in 4ldi!

    Happy Xmas morning all and thanks elsiepac for starting the new year and new thread. :j Welcome to all the newcomers and all the old usuals.

    Please put me down for €350 lasting January 1st to January 30th. This will be the last month OH and I share together for a while because I’m returning to America for a few months before we get married later in 2019. I’ll be posting in dollars after January for a while. :) This also means that January is the last month in our apartment and we’re going to eat down the stores to avoid moving things!
