Really want to cut unnecessary spends, with a cheaper to run car, and no pets should be doable. Although the pet part is under review.
I would prefer a max weekly amount for groceries, toilet roll, cleaning stuff etc to be £100, but that might be ambitious to do all at once. Will try for £115 a week, which will come out at £575 for the month.
Have done a very rough meal plan with lots of flexibility, with the aim of doing a massive monthly shop for cupboards, freezer, bread and meat. Then will do everything else weekly and try to run down what I have.
£575 for the month for me please!

£3000 annual target please
Just realised you have added me with that presumption - thankyou. Please leave the contingency too. I also intend adding a row for treats and entertainment to my spreadsheet so I can track my monthly spend there properly (still won't include it in GC though). This is because I have bought quite a lot of wine and then wondered why I needed to juggle funds between three accounts!
Count me “in” please with a budget of £140.
That’s for all grocery shopping for two adults - food, cleaning products and toiletries - but excludes any money spent at our local butcher’s shop (separate budget). Our month will run from the 1st to the 31st.
Thanks for the shiny new thread, @elsiepac
