    Spent today =(

    £14.99 for new work shoes as my old ones could practically talk.
    Spent £8.50 on mum's birthday present for tuesday and £8.96 on her mother's day present(s) at the end of the month.

    Personally, I don't see these as spends. They are things that were needed - especially the shoes for work, so if nobody minds, I'm gonna class myself as still within budget with a current £0 spend this week.
    Tomorrow I will be spending £5.80 on Zumba class from my £10 allowance, but shouldn't have any other spends tomorrow.
    Maybe a good luck in your new job/new home card for a colleague who's moving away, but she's not going for a couple of weeks and I could always try and make one (which I'll be doing with my mum's bday & mum day cards).

    Then it's payday on Friday and ready to start from scratch
    Debts (as of 28/10/15)
    Mum: Start £3426.00 Now £2655.00 22.5% Car (on finance): Start 13823.60 Now £8728.59 36.85%
    Current Debt Free Day: 12/1/2019

    Goals:
    £2000 emergency fund £800/£2000 40%
    £5000 House Deposit £62.09/£5000 1.24%
    Car Finance Settlement Fee As of 28/10/15 £0.00/£7152.18 0%
