I hope you guys are having a fantastic weekend! 🙂
I have been crazy busy recently. I have had my parents stay over for about a week, work has been mega busy, and I have also been getting ready for my forthcoming trip to Italy making all the final arrangements. I am catching my flight later this afternoon, and I thought I would post a quick update on my finances before I go away to enjoy the sun, sea and pizza! 🙂
Challenge: £20/week on food
I did it! The numbers are in!
Week one – food/£19.68, personal care/£6.95
Week two – food/£15.74, personal care/£0.44
Week three – food/£10.80, personal care/£10.98
Week four – food/£1.00, personal care/£9.85, my parents were paying for food this week
I have to admit that I am very pleased with these numbers, and although I spent a bit more on personal care products than I had budgeted, I think overall this month has been pretty good! Moreover, I had a bit of money leftover when I got paid, and it’s a first for me as the “old me” would have spent every single penny and then started counting down to a payday.
I have made an extra £55.00 in June by selling a few things I did not need. This may not seem like a lot, but it’s a start!
5 no spends days each week in June
Epic failure! I have had 11 no spend days in June which means on average I have had 3 no spend days each week. I think I am still doing great. There is always room for improvement though. Apart from the first week of July when I’m on holiday, I will take up the challenge again upon my arrival in July!
When I get back, I will write a post about my holiday to Italy and also my forthcoming 3-week trip to South America at the beginning of next year! Stay tuned 😉
