NO MORE SPENDING
23. 02. 2014

Good morning! Apologies for my absence this week – it’s been one of those weeks where thinking, and/or talking about money has been on the back burner.

On to my spending diary – which has been hastily put together this morning!

Monday:
– £9.80 Kindle Books
– £8.85 Eating Out
– £20.00 Oyster Card Top Up

Tuesday:
– £5.00 Gifts
– £30.00 Donation
– £14.29 Eating Out

Wednesday:
– £36.50 Gifts
– £11.29 Eating Out

Thursday:
– £2.85 Eating Out
– £6.64 Grocery

Friday:
– £25.99 Airport Parking
– £20.08 Grocery

Saturday:
– No spend day

Sunday:
– No spend day

So Monday! I totally forgot I was on a spending freeze in February and bought 3 books for our e-reader! I know they’re not physical purchases, but still, I’m silly (and forgetful!).

I’ve been in London for most of the week so there’s lots of eating out on my list – I’ve used a couple of vouchers so that has kept the cost down a little.

On Friday I booked airport parking for our trip to Portugal in April, which seems to be rapidly approaching!

How did you do this week? Did you track all of your spending?

    Those e-books purchases were probably cheaper than if you had bought the physical versions so you can feel good about the value you’re getting :) By the way my friend Pauline just showed me a UK finance ranking site. Wow, you’re number 14 on the list :D Great job Laura! http://www.sterlingeffort.com/uk-personal-finance-blogs

    Hope things have just been on the backburner because you are busy (and hope nothing is wrong.)The Kindle books look like a good bargain!

    • Thanks Fiona! I’m trying hard to get used to reading on a tablet!

      It was bad news I’m afraid :( My best friend is very poorly – it happened quickly and totally knocked us all for six.

        I’m sorry to hear that, Laura. You’re always very ‘low-key’ on your blog, so if you’ve been knocked for six I know that can’t be good. Sending good vibes and I hope all will be ok. (And I hope the Kindle books will be a welcome mini-distraction in between visits etc.)

  3. Hope you are enjoying London – any museum or gallery visits?

    At first glance, I thought that was a lot of eating out. However, eating out in London for under £10 is a pretty good effort…!

    • :) We don’t eat out when we’re at home, but it’s hard to avoid in London….I’m thankful for all the restaurant money off vouchers available these days!

    I have just deleted my first comment – by mistake! So here goes again.
    Sorry to hear about your friend these things happen when you least expect it. My hubby has a kindle but I am a paper book person and recently I have begun rereading a lot of my existing books so it has kept me out of the bookshops. I desparately need something to keep me out of the stationery shops LOL!
    I think your 2 no spend weekend days will help balance your weeks spending – eating out does mount up these days.

    • I was totally a paper book person too, but I’m converting. I’ve given up with our small local library (unfortunately), and I’m also trying to avoid bringing new stuff into the house, so an e-reader is perfect.
      I love stationery too – it’s hard to resist!
