I know exactly what you mean - a treat for us now is that we make home made chinese or indian and you know what we enjoy it more and eat every mouthful.
Some one at work does a Christmas savings so I forfeit some of my food shopping allowance and put it into here to help with Christmas....not a lot but I know it will mean we can still have a "nice" but not luxurious christmas....and it will all be paid for with our hard-earned cash!!
Well, we have a bit left in the bank until hubby gets paid friday so we may treat ourseles tomorrow night with a pub meal.
We would have had to put petrol in car but i took my mom shopping yesterday and she gave me £10 for petrol. x
