    Thats good to know but currently we don't have a Tesco (or an Asda, Morry's or Sainsbury's for that matter lol).
    Will have a look for this once our Tesco opens although hoping my 10kg bag will last a good while lol!

    Well it's all going to plan for the June budget not bad for a first attempt. I have found buying extra bread and milk too freeze when I am doing a big shop has really helped as I haven't needed to pop to the shops to buy a pint and then ending up spending a fiver!!

    I'm off to Skegness tomorrow for the weekend on one of those £15 each Sun deals so I'm going to Asda tonight with my list am not going to let going away make me overspend.

    Also pregnancy is going well so far and morning sickness seems to be getting a bit better HOORAY!

    Been to Mr A on way home to stock up on some milk, treated kids to popcorn for movie night tonight (free lovefilm trial) and hotdogs for tea as ds has friend round.
    Feel quite pleased with way budget is going- we were easily spending £500 beginning of the year :eek:- following ideas on here has reduced things slowly (last month's spend included 2 birthdays- cakes party food etc) but joining in and setting a budget has made even bigger difference! :D

    Off to a conference this weekend, am hoping lunches etc aren't too expensive!

    searching_me, you could try Tesco and go via cashback site for £5 sign up bonus plus use a code to get free money off first order/free delivery etc. But if you have already booked your delivery for Saturday from Sainsbury, the site being down won't affect them delivering your order, assuming you have confirmation that it went through alright. You could try phoning them? :)
    I reserve the right NOT to spend:
    The less I spend, the more I can afford!

    I've used tesco several times and never had a problem, plus there are always discount codes kicking about on the discount thread for tesco.

    MY plans are out of the window cos hubbie didn't get paid today - it's a 5 week month and it won't be in bank until 26th now so I will start July challenge then. I have learnt so much from doing this challenge and I am looking forward to a successful challenge next month.
