    DH has put a spanner in the works for this little project. First of all he goes to the butchers (fine, of course but I don't know what he spends) and then he went to the supermarket as well the other day and no receipt.

    I guess it was a tall order to expect myself to keep this up for long!

    Sod it! I spend what I spend - as long as I'm not throwing stuff away then I am not going to worry too much about it now.
