FrllyFrugal Friday... the holiday wrap up..

So how much did we spend on our frugal holiday?

5 nights, 6 days:
Accommodation: 211.00 (Port MacQuarie, 2 nights)
Food: 202.20 (Supermarket, includes steaks and prawns, snacks, fruit)
Souvenirs 63.50 (foody stuff mainly, gifts for others)
Dining: 106.00 (Dinner with Cousins, two lunches)
Entertainment: 31.82 (Ricardo's tomatoes and Strawberries)

Total: 614.52

I think that's not too bad!

My next challenge:
I've only spent in groceries since we got back 9.25 for bread and sugar! We've still got loads here, no need for major shops this week... just some milk, more bread and the trusty diet going to limit myself to $50 until next next Thursday..!

I can't understand how you managed to have 2 lunches and 1 dinner OUT for 5 people for only $106!!! I don't know how you do it Liss.

Evening 5 - Panthers Port MacQuarie - 3 kids meals chicken tenders with veg $8 each, Chicken Pot Pie (Hubby)$14, Prawn Fettucine $17 (Me) complimentary drinks... total $55

That's how we did it :)
