I would love to join this group for it's september thread!! if you'll have me!! just had a total lightbulb moment when we realised we had spent this month ( pay day to pay day) £518:eek: on supermarket shopping we do have 2 childrem agaed 6 months and 2 years who are both still in nappies but come on £500!!!! thats so stupid! even though we have worked out our budget to £173.19 we have allowed extra for the babies as we are unsure of nappies/wipes and baby milk useage!!!lol
so hoping to save over £300!!! from this month!!lol i know we might not be able to do it and this fist month is really a tester to see what our expenditure shuold be but we really have to give it a go it's all planned now so wish us luck!!! and good luck to you all too!!:T

I need your help, i set myself a budget on what i want to spend on groceries each month, i always manage to stick to it or improve for my main shop, but i can never do this for my weekly shop, ie on the weekly shop i get bread, milk, fruit and veg, yoghurts, that sort of thing. I aim to spend about £20-£25 a week, but always seem to spend about £40.I dont think it helps that my husband and two children come with me, does anyone have any suggestions please.
