Nearly a no spend day.....

but fell at the last post.... Had to order a seal for our caravan door on the internet as couldn't get it in our local caravan shop - £27 - a real need as otherwise the rain will start coming in and ruin the floor....

Took a packed lunch into work and didn't buy anything else.

Did another load in the dishwasher last night with Smart price dishwasher tablets - it was a lot dirtier that the first load I tried with them and I have had to put quite a few things back in (including mugs as it didn't take the ring off them) Now I only use a fast wash so it might be that you have to use a hotter wash with these tablets but I think it would cost a lot more in electric just to use cheaper tablets! My quick wash is 40 mins and the normal wash is 1 hour 45 minutes so I think its a false economy having to use a hotter wash with cheaper tablets. I will go back to using Fairy (and only getting it on special offer) I have only had my dishwasher just over a month (got it off Freecycle!) so it will be trial and error until I find stuff I like - never realised how dear dishwasher stuff could be!

May housekeeping - £250 (and £4 into Junes!)
Extra Holiday fund - £50
My allowance I have left - £17.79
Entertainment - £157.70 (really getting out of hand!)
Clothes - £46.50
Household - £33
Spent with money paid back - £423.63


  1. Thanks for linking to my blog in your blog list! Your blog is very inspiring! I'd love it if you'd write a blog post about one of the topics on my list in this post
