Mealplan and Spending Update 09/06

Can’t believe it’s Sunday again already!  The mealplan is very unadventurous this week – we’re having workmen in to plaster some of the rooms in our flat this week, so we wanted to plan easy, no-fuss meals.  Next week’s will hopefully be more exciting, as Dave’s mum is coming to stay for a few days so we’ll want to do a couple of nice meals.

We’re a bit ahead of where I’d like to be budget-wise this month – there are two more Sundays before I get paid, so two shopping days.  As there’s only £40 left in the budget I’ll try to make up mealplans next week using up everything we have in – if I succeed I’ll post about it in case this is useful for anybody!  As I tend to stock up at the start of the month, the ends are always a bit tight, but it’s really hard to keep on track during a ‘five-weekend’ month like this one.

Only bought milk and the pizza during the week; everything else came from the Asda delivery today.  No substitutions or problems with this one so I’m very pleased.  Though i accidentally ordered ‘share’ size bags of crisps rather than multipacks – the perils of ordering online!
