    Back on track 6th Sep 17 at 9:08 AM
    After already having two diaries on here i have decided to start again... real life gets in the way and you end up losing track but i am just about to start a new chapter of my life so i need to pull up my socks and start paying down my Halifax card and then save up for my new bathroom.

    I have fallen off the wagon and been spending money all over the place on unnecessary stuff and going out. October will be a tough month money wise due to my first mortgage payment, rent, moving costs and everything else that comes with moving house so i've decided to meal plan.

    Wish me luck!

    Spendy weekend with 21.90 pound spend on bowling and 40.60 pound for a meal for our anniversary. I also went out for coffee with a friend over the weekend and spent under a fiver in costa. Bought some dinner for saturday evening, cant remember the exact amount but it was about 20. I am due a refund of 91 pound and also a family member paid me back 27 pound for money i have borrowed, plan to use this, this week.

    Not much in the way of spends the week coming up apart from the chiropractor 65 pound. (my pound sign has broken on my computer!)

    All my bills will be paid by the end of this week so then i will know what im left with for next month, which will be the most expensive of my life. Haha

    Aims this week - hoping to have at least three non spend days
