    My little spending diary 12th May 17 at 6:46 AM
    I'm going to keep a spending diary for a while on here as I think it will be useful to see it all written down, and I hope it will help keep me on track!

    I appreciate this really isn't going to be very interesting reading for anyone, please forgive me for being such a dull old bird!

    I won't be counting payment of bills or costs of travel to and from work, but all those trips to the pub and clothes and bits and pieces and junk are going down..... so here I go.

    Even when you are spending, you are spending really small amounts. Congratulations and keep going.

    Do you have a plan or just competing to be the least spendy person on the planet? If so, you may have competition...

    I'm just trying to cut down on all the money I waste of buying stuff I don't need. And sometimes don't even really want!

    So far, I would say your weakness is food. The Ebay spend, was it related to food and its preparation at all?
