How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
Secret - careful planning, allocating money at the beginning of the month and not going near the shops.
Unsocial hours at work.. food from home and working through a box of deluxe toiletries as a treat lol..:)
What did you spend the £100 on? Was it necessary? That's what I ask now before I spend any money - is it necessary and then when I answer no, I don't spend. Having said that I did have a splurge a few days ago with a bottle of wine/nice pizza and a glossy shiny mag lol.. It was about £15.. but I have acknowledged that I do need to treat myself every so often but small treats maybe once a week lol..
PS: just a bit of an explanation of my completely out of scale weekend!
I am relocating soon (still waiting for the date, but it might be any-time this week), so I actually had two evenings/early mornings out with colleagues and friends to say goodbye, plus an old friend of mine visited on Sunday and I took her around London. Basically, I'm aware I've overspent, but it was worth it :A
I'm back again this month, a few days late because of a very busy weekend but I'm here all the same. Unfortunately I can't declare and NSD so far BUT I am going to set myself a target of 14 this month I think. This takes into account the number of days left of the month after me joining.
I will be on holiday for a week and have Euros left from last year but I won't be promising not having any spends over and above those so setting my sights a bit lower for April.
Will hopefully be popping in and out regularly.
Work then home. Been up in the lift doing some sorting out.
I made a saut!ed mushroom, onion and garlic sauce to eat over rice pasta with Parma sprinkled on. The cheese was hard to grate as its been 'aging' in the fridge of some time now.
Garlic bread and tossed green salad round out the menu. These are all things I had on hand.
