I am watching Extreme Cheapskates, it’s great, I’ve never seen this show before.
Anyway, now that I have the internet again I can finally do all the blog posts I have to catch up on.
Let’s see how I spent my disposable income in August!
POSTAGE AND PACKAGING = £43.03
I sold some stuff on Ebay, and I always include what I spent on postage as an expense, even though in theory the buyer is paying for it. I also bought some stamps and had to post some birthday presents to people.
GIFTS = £20.49
I bought some things for my in laws to say thank you for helping me with my taxes, I included the purchase of wrapping paper and bought a card for my mum.
SOCIAL = £38.24
August didn’t involve much socialising.
TRAVEL (VISITING) = £33.75
Bought train tickets to visit my parents in September.
TRAVEL (DAY TO DAY) = £14
I did better in August about not wasting my money on unnecessary bus journeys.
HEALTH = £4.55
On account of my crazy insatiable thirst thing I have now classified chewing gum as a health expense.
CONTRABAND = £21.17
This is better compared to July, but I have lost my way a bit.
TOTAL SPENDING IN AUGUST = £175.23
