Monthly food budget

As part of our new, mortgage busting budget I have set the food budget element at £250 to include food, drink, toiletries, cleaning stuff and pet food (for two cats).  I have been refining the way I tackle the monthly shopping as it is a million times more difficult with a little one to consider.  What is working for us at the moment is this:

  • One large online shop to include all the essentials to last the month.  Using mysupermarket.co.uk the cheapest supermarket for us has been ASDA for the last two months.
  • Weekly (ish) top up shops usually from Morrisons or Lidl depending what we need.
This month the 'big shop' cost £144 and I've done one top up shop at Lidl which was £13.  I'm happy that with three weeks left I've got £93 and fairly full cupboards!  Hopefully I can keep up the good work when I'm back at work (5 weeks left...) as the meal planning can be a little time consuming.

  2. Hello everybody,

    My name is Nicole Morgan from United States. I want to thank Mr Jad.J Harb who helped me to get a loan. For the past three months, I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts, everyone I met scammed and took my money until I finally met Mr Jad. He was able to give me a loan of 87,000 US Dollars. He can also help you. He has also helped some other colleagues of mine. If you need any financial help, kindly contact his company using: jadloandevelopers@yahoo.com I believe he can help you.

    He doesn't know that I am doing this by spreading his goodwill but I feel I should share this with you all to free yourself from scams, please beware of impersonators and contact the right loan company. Thanks..
