Keeping a record of our spending (good or bad!), s a habit – for daily recording I use an app on my phone, and every week (usually on a Sunday when I write this post), I transfer the figures to an excel spreadsheet. It only takes a few minutes, but knowing where all our money goes (or hopefully stays!) is the key to managing our budget.

Money in this week:
As you can see lots of spending this week. We booked a trip to New York in April and the airport parking/hotel for the night before – early flight out of Heathrow on a Tuesday and didn’t want to risk the traffic. Both expenses were booked through a cash back site (3.5% & 10%), so we’ll be getting a bit of the money back (£76.31), in a few weeks.
