I caved in and bought grocery today, but I’ll be counting it in January’s budget (slightly cheating!), but we were totally out of fruit and fresh veg and I was craving something healthy for dinner!

More details on my grocery haul in Friday’s post, but I bought quite a bit of stuff and spent £82.91…and made a (bad!) video: Grocery Haul Video :)

Our menu Sunday through Saturday:

Linking up with I’m an Organizing Junkie

What’s on your menu this week?


In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

  1. I had to break down and go to the grocery store yesterday, too, spending my last $22 for the month! Still, just one more day and then we’re home free…though I have no idea how I’m going to bring something to NYE parties tomorrow. :)

    Hi Laura, been busy myself menu planning today for January. Ordered online for del Jan 3rd ( I had free del voucher). I’m hoping my £120 spend will last all month with £20 for fresh top ups if required. Trying to eat healthier in 2014 with a budget of £140 for three. Fruit and veg has become so expensive.
