    Yeah! June's grocery shop ends at £235 - £5 under despite all the increases! I'm going to go for £220 next month I think!
    Resolution:
    Think twice before spending anything!

    Did well I think, spent £222.88 so had £27 odd left i am thinking of sticking that in my savings for the car tax and mot tea end of July. and all this on my first try, so, maybe I was doing better than I thouhgt.

    QP.
    Grocery Challenge. £400. - £35.22 + £19.80 + £109.01 = £164.03
    Other spends (Clothes Luxuries etc)£11.97 + £1.19 + £7.36 + £69.00 + £38.50 + £5.50 + £23.00 +£2.00 = £158.52:shocked::sad:

    Please can you put me down for £160 for July as I don't dare try any lower with all the price increases at the moment, and the college summer holidays start next Wednesday so DD bound to eat more at home!!!

    :hello: Hi all

    Can I declare £165.00 for June please.

    I am going to go again for £180.00 for July also.

    Am going to try harder this month though, I found it very difficult to keep up with myself and I know, I just know I can spend much less than that :o:o

    Thanks

    angelnikki please can you put my June total at £225.92 out of £275 i've added up my weekly spends to make it into a month's total ;) so yaay!! thats just under £50 going into my sealed tin :T

    gonna have a go at managing on a fiver a week less this month, so am gonna try for £50 a week and see how i go. the freezers still have a fair bit in them, and i used a load of coupons to stock up on dog food for the month, so that should help me out a bit :D

    right, i'm off to the july thread..........good luck everyone with your final spends, but don't be down if you go over...just think what you would have been spending before this thread!!

    Hello everyone.
    Can I declare at £334.01 for this month please.
    It used to be a lot worse (well I think it did, I never used to manage to keep track - just never had any money!)

    I have, however learnt a lot about my shopping habits:o
    So I'm off over to the July board, ready to start on Tuesday, where I will be mostly meal planning and only shopping once a week:rolleyes:
