I have just been updating my Food Diary, link at the top of the page, and it seems I am on target for the first eight weeks at least, to get my food spending down to £10 a week. It's a struggle though, every penny has to be accounted for, the cost of every morsel that passes my lips is included. Of course I already had some food in when I started, but if I monitor it over a six month period it should give a fairly accurate figure. That's if I don't starve to death during the experiment, ha ha. Shouldn't joke, but it's interesting to discover just how much you can cut from your food budget if you really try hard.
Start of project 15th October 2011
4 weeks I spent £46.08
Spend up to date £79.66. The 8 weeks will come on Saturday 10th December, so only 33p left to spend. Will I make it :o)
Of course all this could change as I run out of things. I have a voucher for £4 off at Tesco to use next week so that will help a bit. Swings and roundabouts really. I will stick at it and see what happens. No extras for Christmas, don't know how I am going to get round that when I am going to visit a friend, can't expect her to feed me, I will have to take something. Toodle pip.
