the shopping challenge

OK so last week I decided that I need to control my spending.

I wasn't going to begin the challenge until next week but as I checked the fridge I realised I have no fruit/ vegetable in there and I had no bread for lunches  so I thought I would share with you the results of my first week.

My spending at the supermarket for this week was £43.92 now I know that is slightly over the £40 I set as a target spend. I'm not going to beat myself up over it as I had some extra/unusual purchases for Stephanie's birthday next weekend so I am feeling happy with a little over spend this time.


  1. You are right not to beat yourself up about it. You are doing so well, compared to me! Expenditure this week, far too high in my house. I'll just add it to my list of failures and try better next week.

    Good for you, keep it up, well done, Arwedd xx

  2. Arwedd I try not to think of it as failure when I don't achieve my goal- it's a step in the right direction. Good luck next week :-)
