Hello dear reader,
This month feels like a round of spend, spend, spending and not my usual frugal self. First of all, we bought a tonne of logs and paid for the heating up front at £100. I then totalled up my personal spending and I have bought make up and a new pair of shoes and have spent £30.25, which as you can imagine is a lot to spend on myself in a month.
We’ve stuck to a food budget of £140 for the month and our combined travel costs have come to £205. We’ve had no debts or bills to pay (other than direct debits which are all accounted for) so out total spend, in terms of cash that left our hands came to £475.25. We’ve paid the mortgage interest payment as usual and all the rest will go towards a capital repayment!
I haven’t really done much at all this month. I’ve made a few chutneys and jellies but all the rest has just been about work.
Do you total up your spending daily? Weekly or monthly? I try to aim for a few months where we don’t spend a single penny. I think I’m going to have to rein in the spending next month!
Love Froogs xxxx
