  • Just been out to get a few essential bits to keep us going, spent £9.82 in A!di, £3.61 in Waitrose and about £8 in Sainsbobs (have lost the receipt - doh!). Total of £21.43 - just need to update my sig now, and that leaves me about £20 till the end of the month!!
    Should be do-able as have most of our meals already in the freezer


  • Hi, just stopping by here to get some ideas, for my all in £49 weekly challenge (see thread on oldstyle board), so I hope that's ok.

    Rej-C - can I ask where you got your jogger bottoms x2 £10? Do they do women's sizes too? Is the quality good?

    When I get home on Friday, I'll spend some time with our daughter and have dinner before heading to Aldi at 7, then to the ASDA behind for the rest of the bits.

    Over £3 for bin bags!

    Headed to Aldi tonight so I can make a Bolognese tomorrow night to fill the freezer. Bought loads of food, plenty for next two weeks, may have to pop back for some fresh veg but in total it came to £70 including some beer for tomorrow night. :beer:
    Got the £2 bin bags!
  • Reporting a £5.99 spend at Tesco...two shower gels and a bottle of wine - my partner got offered the job he had a second-stage interview for the other day!!!!!
