    Another week gone - and almost on track.

    Spent about £10 more than I'd hoped this week - but the meal plan hasn't exactly gone to plan due to poorly kids, so I'm replacing some things sooner than expected, and have others still sitting in the freezer a week after they should have been used.

    Total spend to date is now £230.27 - which leaves just under £50 for the next 2 weeks - so long as no-one else succumbs to this bug that's doing the rounds, I should be ok with it, as under normal conditions it's only for milk, fruit and bread.

    hoorah nsd for me at last :j:T
    I will lose 2 stone by this summer!!!!!!
  • NSD yesterday but spent £13.06 today - mostly on food for mothers day as my grown up children are coming over for dinner. Should be the other way round but I will enjoy seeing them and they will come armed with chocs and flowers even if I say don`t.

    total left for rest of month £50.85 from total of £140.00.

    Well done everyone you all seem to be doing great.
    Make £2 a day challenge - doing well so far.

    £1.99 spent in Sainsburys today - went to look for the chickens, but couldn't even see a price on the shelf, nevermind any chickens! Oh well. I might have a look in Coop tomorrow, although would be buying one because they're on offer, not because I need one and that kind of defeats the point of all this :p

    Picked up a packet of wraps and a bag of frozen fruit salad to try, no idea what that will be like, but left it in the freezer at work so will try some on Monday.

    I did get a packet of ice lollies for myself and a colleague which i'm not counting as they were a little treat for us after a crappy week!

    I have had 3 NSDs in a row ... I am so proud :D
    Unfortunately tomorrow is a 6 Nations day, which means pub and beer in Wales :beer: - although that comes out of my entertainment budget and 'eating is cheating' so I'll probably have another GC NSD!!! :rotfl::rotfl:

  • Another little spend today of £8 odd on coleslaw for the pizzas tonight, some Aldi diet coke, cucumber & tomatoes, apples, buns & rice puddings. Might do some more baking tomorrow. Made a lovely gluten free banana loaf the other day which tasted completely normal!

    Slowandsteady - hope you had a good time at the greyhound racing. My OH & I went the other weekend to Nottingham & had a great night. Even after entrance, bets, drinks & a curry afterwards, we still cleared about £25 profit so hope you were as lucky.

    Another no spend far managing to do one main shop a week and one fruit and milk top up! My worst time is at the weekend when I feel I deserve a treat! Sometimes I get confused between the GC and WW:o Having the willpower to succeed!
