Tracking the budget, week by week
Grocery top-up [milk, fruit and bread after arriving home from holiday] ~ £7.90
Nursery snack money ~ £2.50
Total spend for week: £10.40
I didn't keep a detailed spending diary during our recent holiday, but we did come in way under budget, thanks largely to receiving groceries from Sainsbury's as part of our savvy family competition.
Last week also turned out to be a cheap week, with us needing to buy only a few fresh foods upon our return home.
Now we're into May, it's time for my April £2014 in 2014 Money Challenge update. I haven't forgotten. It will be here soon!
P.S: Have you been wondering where I've been recently?
