How we did compared to budget in December:

December Budget Round - Up

Financial Goals:

1. Stay within grocery budget (£200). Fail (ish) although I nearly made it. At least £48 of the grocery spending was on coffee (for our stockpile), so I only went over budget by about £14. At this time of the year I’m happy with that :)

2. Increase income by at least £100. Yes. We gained an extra £218.17 in December

  • £45.00 Gifts (anniversary)
  • £19.45 Lottery winnings
  • £78.72 Blog income
  • £56.62 Sealed pot
  • £18.48 Cash back


We also very gratefully received a bonus from hubby’s company. It was a total surprise and will enable us to finish all of the work on our house in 2013. We’re saving a percentage of it as they’re as likely to let him go as reward him next year!

Personal Spending:

  • £20.39 Postage
  • £35.01 Gifts
  • £3.86 Books
  • £32.06 Kids
  • £55.26 Eating out
  • £2.50 Car Parking
  • £2.15 Coffee
  • £0.75 Sweets!
  • £36.37 Donation
  • £8.00 Lottery
  • £79.87 Blog update
  • £80.00 Hubby


January WILL be a lot less spendy……..I hope!

  1. You did really well with your budget Laura. I haven’t really kept to a budget in the last 2 months.

    But now i’m technically in January (my months go from 26th to 26th) I am back on track.

    Great news about your hubby’s bonus.
