Well that is us into week 3 now. We still have plenty of staple foods in the cupboard and we are buying 1 or 2 'big buys' a week (loo roll, nappies, washing powder - each of which cost around £5)
I've also kick started my ebay shop (link at the bottom
I am limited in the amount I can do just now for the other stuff
we are locked in a fixed rate electricity doodah for another 12 months (been in it for 2 years and the prices are much lower than standard rates)
cheapest broadband (for a decent speed in our area) - Talktalk
cheapest mobile packages - Giffgaff
No chance in me getting a part-time or evening job, it would mean dramatically changing our lifestyle and, while I don't mind living on a budget, I am not willing for the GIT to have forced us to change the way our family lives.
I make a little something with my own business, hopefully that will grow in the future.
Once we get back home it will be easier, but I think we will keep our target at £50 a month.... that means there will be the occasional £20 for a family day trip, and to save up for other treats.
Thanks again everyone.
