    :shock: OUCH!!! That's a lot!

    If we wasn't going out for dinner then it'd probably cost me a lot more but we're only buying a few nibbley bits, chocolates and crisps etc so no-more than £20. I suppose it's different and a bit more expensive for those who are buying lots of alcohol though.

    Ive been buying a few bits each week. So all ill get is the fresh stuff and nibbly bits, im hoping to get away with about £50.
    I wont be going overboard as we end up with so much waste, plus we are going to friends on Boxing Day so that saves a little.

    I got Tesco delivered this morning £75 (£6 delivery fee though, when did that get so expensive lol??) and then I'm doing Asda tomorrow, done a rough version online and should come to £60-ish hopefully but thats including baby milk, baby food (for the days I can't be bothered to eat healthily lol!) and housey bits like dog food, washing up liquid etc. On Christmas alone I reckon it's easily going to push £100, although thats cheap for us!

    I have been buying in bits, so far
    £45 for turkey
    £50 for drink
    £53 for cupboard and freezer food
    £20 for biscuits and sweets
    Still have to do a fresh food and veg shope so that will probably be another £30-£40, so what that about £200 give or take a few £s.

    WOW it really does add up doesnt it ?? Oh I forgot I also had to pay £15 for a smaller turkey for Boxing day.

    We're going to have to spend about $5 maximum for Christmas dinner this year. Just no mone to get extra food. Box of pasta, jar of sauce, maybe some hamburger if we're lucky. That's about all we're going to have for dinner. :(

    Our turkey is £55 :rofl: We probably spend another £60 on booze, and maybe another £100 on actual food.

    :\ more than £200 anyway.
