Well, it’s less than last week, I think, which is good as I now have £10 discretionary spending money left and £12.38 in the food budget.
To last 12 more days.
This doesn’t include my football training costs and a ticket to a women’s football match as these have been budgeted for but not yet paid for. They are safely in an envelope in my wallet. Hopefully the money in the envelope will fornicate with the lone £10 note and make money babies as I need cash.
My social life is looking pretty thin on the ground for the next 12 days, so that’s one good thing, and in all honesty we shouldn’t be buying any food other than bread, milk and fruit/veggies, so it is possible I will survive.
