Had a bit of a down week spending wise this week just gone.
I work in the City Centre and going out is always a temptation. This week I ended up going out to a restaurant for dinner twice!
I really beat myself up about it and feel terrible going out when I am in the situation that I am.
Just wondered if anyone had any practical tips on saying no or just budgeting say £50 for eating out a month.

    Probably budgeting is a good idea, then you CAN enjoy it without beating yourself up. do you look out groupon deals or 5pm.co.uk?

    Do you like to cook? Are you able to ask friends round for dinner instead and its a case of make a dish each... even boost the fun by doing a come dine with me with friends. You could get fed once a week if you spaced it out lol.
