To help us stay within budget, I track our weekly spending.

- No spend day

- £15.26 DIY (Window handles and a hook)

- No spend day

- £54.99 Microwave Oven

- £36.33 Grocery

- £9.58 Lunch

- No spend day

I finally gave in and purchased a microwave oven this week. We may be without an oven for quite some time and it’ll make thing easier.

M and I were closing down the storage unit on Friday and bought lunch out. Even though we only had the unit briefly it feels good to have it out of our lives!

How was your spending this week?

Yikes that’s a lot of spending. It’s obvious that going our each day (like I do when I’m here), leads to extra spending. I even fell into the Ikea trap on Friday. I took Mum for a browse and ended up spending nearly £40! Must do better this week!

Hi all! Part one of our move is done. Yay! Everything went really well and we’re now settled in at my Mum’s for a short time. We’re going out for a meal with family today, and then from Monday I want to get back to regular meal planning and grocery shopping.

I fully expect the next few weeks/months to be more ‘spendy’ than usual as we move house and then set about updating our new home. I’ll still be tracking everything we spend, but I think I’m going to stop reporting everything on this site as I wonder if you find these posts boring and just a list of numbers! Let me know! :)
