...Yeah, so I couldn't finish the title as basically I haven't done very well so far.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and tips. Most were about food, I deffo do OK with food, I spend no more than £200 a month on food and household palava which for a family of 5 I think is pretty good, but I am definitely going to try a lot of the tips and see if I can get it lower.
I have however, been turning off TVs, lights and chargers a lot more. I have had a word with the children about excess toilet paper use. I have started up a food share scheme with friends and neighbours and I have sat down and worked to the penny what is coming in and what needs to go out and what's left etc.
So doing great yeah? Well errrrrrrrrrm...
I have bought some things that I was planning on waiting to buy but once I get the bug!
I am still happy though as my purchases were savvy(can't spell it!)
I bought a 1930s art deco drop leaf table which is in pretty good condition for £15
Two windsor style dining chairs for £10
and a painted pine bookcase(that I am re-painting) for £45
I don't think that is tooo bad, I will just have to snip it off the budget somewhere else. Maybe swap the loo roll for newspaper(then maybe the kids would appreciate toilet paper more and be a little more careful with it!)
I would have pictures but I can't find my camera and I am a little doped up on painkillers as I have really hurt my hand(I think it is broken!)
I will be reading all your blogs as soon as I have this house back to normal and I am a little more with it.
Happy Wednesday xx
