Sometimes one gets the urge just to have a wander around the shops just to see how the prices are but I have resisted that as I think thats when you can be tempted by 'Oh that looks good, and on the offer' I have some old christmas cards that I have cut up into handy purse size pieces and I keep them in the kitchen by the kettle.If I really use the last of something and need to replace it then I put it down on my card and until I have at least five things on there I don't go near a shop. Sometimes its just a case of substituting something to save popping out for just one thing .I used up a litre of longlife last weekend rather than go out just to get some milk.I live so close to a shopping presinct its only a few minutes walk away so I do have to really make an effort to stay away. I have been turning in the opposite direction when going out for a walk and going round to the park instead.Nothing to spend and cash on there. Slowly working down my freezer I can see a little bit of room in there but I am hoping not to put any more in until its empty so I can give it a good defrost before Christmas.I'm already thinking ahead for whoopsied stuff from Christmas to go into a nice empty freezer
Well onwards and upwards chums

Can I ask you guys, I know we all differ as to what we include in our grocery budgets but do you mostly include toiletries, cleaning products and loo rolls etc? I do.
Also how much do you are your budgets for how many? I get inspired when I see people living on the same amounts or less as what I budget and they have 4 mouths to feed or something.
My budget is for 2 adults and 1 toddler.
