100 eyes on Me

My wife and I are bad at not spending money. We do save but fairly unintentionally and as a bi-product of my income. We both want to live a more "fulfilling" life. I want this diary to keep track of our spending and hopefully keep me in check on achieving some kind of early retirement goal. I hope some people can help us by four eyes'ing it all.

I am fairly on top of my accounts and will include my expenses every month.

Wife's expenses aren't incuded (but are less). Gym is for PT sessions, and probably lasts me 4 months. Costs aren't exact as I need to fx them into GBP. We live in Asia. We have no equivalent finance forum unfortunately.

These accounts from March to April. And I will post the more recent accounts in the near future. I thought I should start near a new tax year! Goals are to generally reduce across the board, however this won't happen until I start entering the July accounts!

    Difficult to comment as I have no ideas of costs in Asia & how they compute.
