Mealplan and Spending Update 21/07


As usual, I’ll enter this into Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday

Can’t believe it’s the last week of July already (I get paid on the 25th so new budget then)! I’ve done OK on my newly-lowered £175 budget, and only have a few days left to go. I actually didn’t buy anything during this week, which must be a record!  Dave’s mum was staying at the start of the week and she left some of her longer-life milk, so we were good all week.

It’s a very ‘low-faff’ mealplan this week because we’re really busy. I’m eating out on Monday (my lovely Nana is coming to visit) and on Wednesday am going out straight after work so will probably take a sandwich, so Dave’s fending for himself a bit. We’re having a barbeque on Saturday which I’ll shop for separately at the end of the week, and we have quite a lot in, so didn’t need much at Morrison’s today.  I’ll probably pick up some milk and maybe another bag of salad and that’s about it, so we should be fine for hitting target this month.


Sun 21 – grilled lemon & mint chicken with couscous and roasted vegetables

Mon 22 – I’m out; pizza and salad for Dave

Tues 23 – tomato and mushroom pasta bake with salad

Wed 24 – probably a sandwich or leftovers for me and maybe some kind of veggie curry for Dave

Thurs 25 – mac and cheese with broccoli and peas

Fri 26 – sausage casserole with rice

Sat 27 – barbeque
