This is what I was calculating on my spreadsheet at 11.50 pm yesterday. GIFTS £37.68 The majority was […]

Financial Review of Week 42

Hi everyone. It’s time to confess. My mental health hasn’t been great recently and I have been spending. The thing is, what I am buying is all essential things. Food, toiletries etc. BUT, we are so shockingly over the ‘Food and Household Shopping Budget’ that it seems laughable to say we ever had a budget […]

Be Prepared to be Bored…6 Month Expenditure Comparisons

I decided that on the 1st of April 2015 I would start keeping a thorough spending diary. I said that this was because it was the start of a new tax year but really it was because I hadn’t had the idea in January. I never expected to keep it up, but I did. And […]

I am a Consumer, Therefore I Consume

I have been flexing my shopping muscles. Restrained, considered purchases, contraband in terms of the no spend year but not wild and decadent items in them self, they were all practical, but still I have anxiety. Things needed replacing in our house. The clock in the kitchen broke, we didn’t realise how essential it was […]
