Hi all! Here’s the breakdown of our spending for January.
Electricity was higher than usual – it’s been colder, and we had the heating on a lot more over the holiday period. We also made our last council tax payment for a couple of months, and paid the bi-annual maintenance charges for our apartment.
I nearly made grocery budget – going over by £1.71. I spent a lot on hair and beauty this month – I got my hair coloured for the first time, and I stockpiled body butter and moisturiser. Body Shop had an offer on and I purchased 4 coconut Body Butters for £6.75 each – a lot cheaper than the regular £13 per pot. My supply should last me all year.
I also filled the car up with petrol at the very end of the month and so we might not have to buy any fuel in February.
2015 Financial Goals progress:
It’s early days but here’s how I’m doing so far.
1. The sum of invested assets at 25% of goal by December 2016. At the end of January progress is at 11.3%
2. Spend no more than £2,520 on grocery & household in 2015. £211.71/£2,520
3. Track every penny spent in 2015. So far so good
How did you do in January?
