Happy Easter (Financial Review of Week 15)

Happy Easter everyone.

I am planning on turning my chocolate eggs into either a tiffin or brownies, but haven’t decided yet.

Any who…

FINANCIAL REVIEW OF WEEK 15

FOOD AND HOUSEHOLD SHOPPING

Bread £1.19

Wraps £0.65

Frozen Onion, Frozen Sweetcorn, Frozen Broccoli and Milk £4.33

Indian Sides and Poppadoms £3.45

Milk, Apples, Bananas, Meat Pie for the boy, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Cucumber, Margarine £7.74

TOTAL = £17.46

 

DISCRETIONARY/DISPOSABLE INCOME

Travel (Day to Day)

Bus Tickets x 5 = £13!

Work Expense

Milk and drink = £2.35

Social

Meal out with the football girls £17.20

Train Ticket to tourist destination with brother £2.60

Mexican dinner and many drinks with brother, brother’s girlfriend and the boy £25

TOTAL DISPOSABLE SPENDING = £60.15!

TOTAL SPENDING COMBINED THIS WEEK = £77.61

I have a confession to make.

I have £6.86 of the food budget left, with 10 days to go. Yikes!

I have also spent ALL of the money I had in my bank account and today took out £40 from my savings.

So I am not in debt as such, but I will have to rejig the budgets and the fact is that I have spent more than I wanted to this month.

I was on a reduced income due to moving a lot of money to my savings, but I also had birthday money so it should have balanced out.

I feel like I may have lost my way a little and will try to get back on track as I can’t guarantee how much money I will be paid on the 27th of April due to being out of work for 1.5 weeks and doing some self employed work during that time.

I think I will survive though.

(Sings I will survive. Badly)
