    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie. Was just looking at the site as I'm broke and need to cut down so I was looking for some advice. You lot sound amazing. I was planning to cut down my grocery shopping as I always seem to throw food away at the end of the week. I travel a lot with work so I only need food for the few days a week when I'm at home. Inspired by how little everyone else is planning to spend, I'm going to try to spend £50 from today until the end of July on groceries. OMG, can't belief I'm just about to post this! Help!
