I,ve ticked all the boxes this week / Financial epidemics
After my 1st payday of my new budget I have spent and done exactly what I intended to do with my wages.
Groceries $70.00 I had a budget of $100
Ebay $30 I used left over Grocery money because I forgot I had to make this payment.
Rent $200 not something I usually contribute to.
Petrol $20 this is my normal weekly amount
Debt $25 a fortnightly payment
Day out for lunch $26 I had budgeted $30
I had forgotten when doing up my budget that I have 4 Birthdays in the next couple of weeks, so instead of banking the remainder of my money I will use it to source out inexpensive gifts.
My lunch out with the girls was really enjoyable and educational as it turns out that one of the girls is using a Budgeting Company to organise her wages, from what I can gather she hands over all her wages to them and they pay her bills and give her pocket money, as well as which they contact her creditors and arrange payments with them as well. Another of the girls is a budgeting Guru and a third is in a complete financial mess as she is the sole bread winner, as her husband is now to obese to work. I thought I was the only one with money issues amongst our friends but it seems to me that we have an epidemic on our hands.
Nearly forgot to mention that I lost another pound of weight this week, I,ll fit into my dress yet yippeeeeeee
