This week has seen my finances dramatically dwindle and now I have £7.32 left to last till the 25th.
I actually owe my boyfriend money as he has bought some of the extra groceries this week which have seen us currently stand at £18.27 over budget.
Here is how my money left my wallet this week.
Carrots x 4, Potatoes x 10, Leeks x 2, Spring Onions x 2 = £3.24
Milk and Bread = £1.98
Pizza, Jamaican Pastie and Cornflake bites (can you tell it was my boy shopping?) = £3.54
Apples and Bananas = £2
Milk = £1
Deodorant, Shower Gel, Sponges, Cistern Block, Toothpaste, Sink unblocker = £12
Pitta Bread and Rolls = £1.20
Breakfast Biscuits, Donuts and Bread = £3.28
TOTAL = £28.24
(I owe my boyfriend £3.87 currently)
Milk for work = £0.80
TRAVEL (DAY TO DAY)
Bus to work = £1
The best pizza in the world ever, Gin and Tonic, Diet Pepsi = £20.75
Tip for excellent service = £2.50
Upcoming birthdays and Mothers Day gifts = £38.24
TOTAL DISCRETIONARY SPENDING = £63.29
TOTAL SPENDS THIS WEEK (Including boyfriends shopping) = £91.53
I never realised I was spending so much money each week. I know some of it is from the food budget, and some of it was my boyfriend’s spending, but in the last few weeks I have been spending close to £100 each week.
Where is the money coming from? As I don’t have £400 a month disposable income.
And where is it going? As I am doing a spend free year and am NOT BUYING ANYTHING.
I need to look into this.
Nearly £40 came from Top Cash Back so perhaps it isn’t as bad as I think it is.
Still, I must keep an eye on this.
