Our small budget
For a long time now I've been blogging about and sharing our simple living-below-the-line life.
The things we do are not rocket science - many of the ideas come from Man Wonderful's post-war upbringing and my low-income lifestyle.
Over the years we have given advice as it's been requested, and I've enjoyed putting bits and bobs in writing in this - and my previous - blog. There are other - successful - blogs that have been spawned from this simple advice and many friends take parts of advice that suit them. This makes us very happy.
Today I'm writing about living on a very small budget.
Every month we know what our set income is. We look at what we have already and plan what to buy.
I use an online app to choose what to buy and where, and plan several meals that are flexible.
I order online and either have shopping delivered or use click and collect - whichever is the best deal.
I also defrosted some leftover mince pie filling and made some pastry that is in the fridge - tomorrow when I'm cooking our lunch, the mince pies will bake alongside.
