    Greying - my smart meter showed 69p when the new day started at 1am, but by the time I got up later on it had gone down to 60p, so don't forget the meter 'standing' charge, not sure if it's called that and companies charge different amounts, mine is combined g&e, so when I'm up at 1am again I will go and have a look at the breakdown of both, I found when I last looked they charged more for the gas than electric, don't know why though.

    May I join, food spending seems to be a bit hit and miss for me, not to ad when I remember to meal plan, but once I forget that it's constant popping to shops to get whatever I feel like! 


    Just me and the cat, and all I think he needs this month is cat litter.

    Done a small shop today spent £17.03
