Good afternoon, I hope you have all had a nice weekend!
Its time for our weekly spending update. I am going to separate the spending between food and other items we paid for this week.
ASDA £17.03 09/08/15 Window cleaner £12.50
ASDA £27.27 10/08/15
ASDA £24.83 12/08/15 Total expenses cash £160.26
BP GARAGE £4.08 13/08/15
ASDA £55.15 15/08/15
TOTAL - £125.76
McDonald's £22.00 13/08/15
TOTAL - 147.76
Oh dear, It felt as if we had improved this week but with the McDonald's (which was an A level results day treat) we actually spent more than last week. We went to the shops less this week but the large shop yesterday really topped it up.
Ideally, I would like to get our food shopping down to £80.00 per week. Once we get paid I am planning on doing a once a week online shop with Tesco to see if this makes a difference.
In addition to the above, I bought some curtains for my eldest boys room which were £15.00 in the Next sale but I used a gift card so I'm not counting this as money spent.
