I went to the shops this morning and almost stuck to my list (bread, milk, meat, apples) :/ my 4 year old begged for cookies so I brought a packet lol
I didn't buy any chocolate or energy drinks though and I normally cave and buy energy drinks every time I go tithe shops, I'm trying to kick that habit lol

I'm successful so far.. And I'll tell you why.
I went to order some reusable pouches for Dd online and the website kept timing out...so I took that as a sign to stop trying and save my money, if that hadn't of happened I would have bought them though lol.

I'm in too. I can start by reviewing our PHI premiums.
My DH is overseas for April and he doesn't do things cheaply so I need to find savings elsewhere.

Oh I looked into dh's life insurance as we have changed it for 10 years. Well it turns out that since he now has insulin dependant diabetes. He wouldn't be able to get cover any where near the price we have now.

I'm in. DH has started working for himself this year so will need to watch our pennies until his income picks up.
Trying to be disciplined and meal plan to help stick to a grocery budget. Allowed a big shop on a Sunday and a top up on Thursday only.
I have also setup a couple of online bank accounts with an alternate banking institution to "hide" money for our goals/big bills so I don't get tempted to touch these for everyday things. I have automatic direct debits from our main accounts set up - if I don't see it I can't spend it!
Interested to know what 5 food staples you keep in your pantry/freezer in case of emergency?

I just thoroughly cleaned out the pantry and made sure everything is only one deep (unless multiples of the same) so I can see everything at a glance and stop the buying more of the same because it was hidden in the back.
