I think I'm doing okay, ten days into Uber Frugal Month. I don't know how much money I'll actually save, but I am more conscious of my spending.

I returned three unwanted Christmas presents yesterday. The store didn't offer store credit, so I exchanged them for a new pair of boots for J, and a loofah. Spent 50p.

I also bought a box of baby wipes because I seen they were on offer. Originally, I was going to get them next week but I changed my mind.

Meal planning has been going well. I think I bought in too many bananas though, so I'll get less next time. I shouldn't be shopping until Friday.

Next week I will use up the last tub of turkey in the freezer. I'm still trying to decide how, though. I froze half of the chilli that I made too, but I don't think I want the same again (we had it with rice and tortilla chips)

    Most chicken/poultry recipes work well using turkey. How adventurous is the family? Would your family eat 'Turkey Parmesan?' This recipe is too big but easily reduce quantities by half.


    If you have the cold weather, the family might enjoy hot, home made soup with dumplings. Most children eat chicken/turkey 'fingers' coated in flour, beaten egg and fine bread crumbs with a bit of mixed spice. We bake to crisp breading but most people fry to golden.

    Too many bananas = banana bread!

    Did the store also not offer refunds? Sounds like it worked out well regardless.

    I didn't have a receipt (they were gifts)

    Could you use the leftover chili and put it over spaghetti?
