Yay for being under budget in April!

    Well done Laura! I haven’t been tracking my spending on groceries but have decided to start doing that again using Spendingdiary.com. I’ve accepted a decluttering challenge from one of my readers – to bring home 3 items a day from school. A big chunk of my life is in that classroom and it’s time to start bringing home the things I want to keep.

    Has somebody been nibbling those grapes before the photo ……. tsk tsk…. naughty nibblers :-)

  3. A delicious looking haul, as always. I haven’t been shopping in over a week and have been eating out like crazy. That needs to stop. To the store!

  4. Way to be under budget! I remember having the roughest time finding coupons for groceries when I lived in England. I used to email companies begging for them for a poor student – it often worked!

    • Thanks Mel! I’ve given up trying to find coupons as they never seem to be for the products I buy. It’s easier to concentrate on buying items on sale. I see the Extreme Couponing shows and I’m in awe. although they’re a bit over the top :)

    Brilliant work to be under Budget again for March! I have to finish adding mine up but it will have to be on the weekend when term finishes.
