The Great British Budget The Final Week
It's the last week of the Great British Budget and I'm pretty pleased with how it's all gone for us. We plan meals regularly and are all eating better as a result. I've even registered with Change4Life for more budget recipe ideas especially ones for the children.
I've continued to lay out my incoming and outgoing finances on the Money Hub app which I installed free on my mobile device. Everything is written down for March so I know exactly what I've got spare as I take on some house redecorating!
I'm really pleased with this weeks shop which only cost me £40 from Tesco. I need to visit the 99p store for lunch box items because that's where these bits are cheapest. I still want to get back into shopping around but it's just been too difficult this month.
My Costa buying was never going to go down easily! I love having one on the school run once or twice a week and I have spent less than I did in January! Money off vouchers have lessened the guilt quite a bit I must add.
I've really enjoyed taking part in The Great British Budget. It has certainly been worth doing because now I think twice as I go around the supermarket and I've been a bit tighter with the pennies, allowing me to start purchasing items for the home and that's a great feeling.
How has The Great British Budget helped you? Let me know!
