So another week of heavy spending.

I’m definitely going to have to rein it in as I have very little money left.

I have:

£50 in my savings.

£5 in my wallet

£38.73 in my bank account from a Top Cash Back payout.

I have about £15.70 worth of confirmed expenses between now and payday, so I do have the money to cover my expenses, but I won’t be able to do anything extra. I will have to be careful.

As said in a previous post this month will be a bit of a challenge because I won’t have any Christmas money behind me as a buffer, and in reality March will also be a challenge because February is the shortest month.

So things will be struggle, struggle, struggle for the next while.

But it will hopefully all be fine.

I have decided that for the most part all social activities, including any plans I had to celebrate my birthday at the end of March, are cancelled.

This is because my contract at work is not being accepted, and I wasn’t shortlisted for the job I had applied for.

This means my job situation is looking a lot more dire than it was previously.

I’m going to have to step up the job hunt.

I do not want another four months unemployed this year!
