    Came in at £293.81 for January so slightly under my £320.00 budget but annoyed with myself as last week spent more on shopping than I planned otherwise would have been more like £100 less hopefully will do better in February.

    Finished the month with £35 to spare. I’ve popped into a saving pot. Will not be the same saving in February unfortunately.

    I have a few pages to catch up on  :)

    I’ve just counted up my spends for January and I’ve come in at £86.78 which includes all food and household buys. I did use some store cupboard ingredients eg lentils but I’ve also got some food left.  So i think that balances it out a bit.  I have another 5 evening meals left and the same for breakfasts and lunches.

    I think I’ll aim for an annual budget of £1200 to include Christmas.  Oh I should say this doesn’t include any money spent on eating out/coffee out.  That’s a separate budget (also being restricted!).
