I'm enjoying YNAB very much and it will definitely help me. But, this is my first month on my journey so I know I'm going to have to dip into my overdraft very slightly this month - this will be fine as the first £250 is free (I shant go over much) but I don't want to use my savings so I'd prefer to use my overdraft this month.
It's a work in progress and I'm still learning. Each month will get better and better
Today has been a spendy day.
£20 for 2 presents of £10 each for my niece and partners daughters birthdays
£20 petrol - this should last me until I go on holiday
£60 carpet fitter fee - carpet/vinyl being fitted next Monday
£16.50 for 2 gifts for ladies that work for me - I have wine in to add to these so cheapish presents
£4 zumba class
Next week I still need to pay for the hairdressers, nail appointment and buy euro's.
I get paid whilst I'm away!
Tomorrow should be NSD#4
Today was NSD 4/10.
I'm still getting to grips with YNAB and have finally managed to get it on my iPad and iPhone by downloading the correct app. Looking forward to getting paid now so I can budget my money.
Sounds like a proper busy day. Not long to summer hols
Last big spendy day for a while I hope. I had to go and get some euros for my son who is off to Paris in the morning with school and some for our trip to Spain. We're staying in an all inclusive hotel so I'm only taking 100 euros as we won't need to buy much whilst we're there.
Last supermarket shop at Aldi & Tesco and spent £50, was hopin it would be less but hey ho!
Hoping that I will rack up some NSD now as I don't need anything. I may dip into my overdraft by £60 if my hairdresser cashes my cheque before I get paid - sometimes it can be 2/3 weeks before it's cashed, so we shall see.
But £60 overdrawn is better than £500 which is what its been for months, so I'm pleased with that progress. Hopefully it should be 0 next month and I can start building it up.
Right off to tacklesome washing...
This definitely applies to me too. We will get there must not overnight.
I laughed when I read about your boys drinking all the milk. My brothers were exactly the same growing up! Exactly the same. I dont know what it is with boys and milk! And I don't know how my mum managed to feel us all when we were teenagers. Good luck with your journey. xxx
Overdraft And 1 credit card paid off.
2018 plans - reduce debt
I get maintenance/child benefit on Monday and paid next Wednesday so it's not too bad. Food is sorted for the rest of the week. I've got my euros and £20 in my purse for a drink at the airport on Saturday. I'm sure I can get through the next 3 days!
