Well, I hate to be all ‘spoiler alert’ but on account of being very poor and on Saturday borrowing £750 from The Boy in order to pay my bills, I did not spend any money on myself this week, all purchases were food only.
So this will be a shorter post then usual.
Saturday marked the beginning of a new food budget month because Saturday would have been the day if I was still working at my old job. We ended up going £24.47 over last month’s budget. Let’s hope we do better this month.
One thing I can say is we bought a lot of milk this week. And milk prices have gone up! (Somehow I doubt the increase in price is going to the farmers) Also I have switched my allegiance from the ‘Every little helps’ supermarket to the ”little’ on price’ supermarket as I just can’t pay their prices anymore.
There have been some great posts on WordPress about the UK Budget announcement this week, so I will leave you to search them out rather than say anything myself.
