June is going to be tough. Last June I think I done a No Spend Month, that won't happen this year.

My statutory maternity pay has started: less than 150 per week.

Our first gas and electricity bill came: 101.

Only paid just over minimum to both cards.

Hoping catalogue payment will drastically decrease next month. If I've worked it out right it should.

Hubby is going to do overtime this week, and next, so that will help us next month.

My baby girl had her vaccines today - she'll be eight weeks tomorrow. How time flies.

I'm currently looking at meal ideas online, stretch our food budget as much as I can.

It's been over a month!

My updates will be few and far between now. We moved into our own place last week and we don't have internet, we can access it at our parents though.

We're both trying to adjust to having our own space and running a household. We have a big notebook that we use to write down all of our upcoming expenses. We've been food shopping. Since it was our first one we had to buy some essential items so it was more than a normal week will be. We're going to use up all of the food that we have before we go shopping again. We only have a fridge so we have to buy fresh.

I can see my goals for this year taking a back seat. My savings have been used buying stuff in for the house. I need to upodate my sidebar. I will try my best to meet some of my goals.

I've been trying to think of some cheap meal ideas. We bought in a lot of pasta so that will be one of our main dishes I think.
