Spending Diary 9th to 15th November 2020

Hi everybody! I am still on a massive urge to spend money. I have no idea why! I also have no money. Maybe it is just a reaction against the two-week fire break lockdown where I live recently which meant all non-essential shops were shut. Though I didn’t want to even go to any shops …

Spending Diary 2nd to 8th November 2020

Hi everybody, I hope you are all well. Wales leaves its lockdown on Monday 9th November morning, but England goes into their lockdown on Thursday 5th November so things still aren’t easing in the UK. As we get nearer to Christmas I become less and less sure that I will be able to spend it …

Spending Diary 26th October to 1st November 2020

Hi everybody, As usual I feel I don’t have any money. This week will however bring about pay day which is always a delight, so the end of the week will probably be quite heavy on the spending. I have decided to be a bit relaxed about how the food budget has gone to hell …

Spending Diary 28th September to 4th October

Hi everybody, I went on a bit of a spending spree last week. New laptop, storage boxes, photo albums and books, I really made my cards work last week! I am hoping for more of a restrained week this week. Though this week will also involve my favourite reoccurring day of ‘pay day’! Who doesn’t …

Spending Diary 21st to 27th September 2020

Hi everybody, Welcome to this week’s spending diary. Let us begin. 21/09/2020 Back to work after the weekend. The notable thing that happened today was I had an anxiety attack and felt I should tell my line manager about it as it happened during working hours. Today felt like a bit of a write off. …

Spending Diary 14th to 20th September 2020

Hi everybody, Welcome to another week in the life of my spending. 14/09/2020 I woke up early today. Well, early for me. I started work at a good time and achieved more by the end of the day than I did last week due to my poor mental health. I was in much better spirits …

Spending Diary for 7th to 13th September 2020

Hi everybody, I have to be really careful with my finances as over the next three paydays I’m going to try and save enough money so I can buy a new laptop. I will then have to hit the saving goals hard again to try and save enough money for moving next year. I currently …
