    Emma Fun though any Serious Apps 15th Jan 20 at 6:47 PM
    1st Emma annual report tonight.
    Fun though I can't take the numbers seriously.
    Stats such as I spent more than 81.99% of Emma users on groceries.
    No offence my part time earnings have taken some getting used to and I budget 90 pounds per month approx -petrol separate.

    And where did Emma find average weekly spend of 440 pounds!

    Mser's what's my next iphone banking app.
    Mondo or Starling.

    Edit: perhaps I misunderstood the question, I thought you were implying that this was the average for Emma users collectively, rather than yours specifically, in the same way as the 81.99% comparison between your grocery spend and that of others.

    Unless I'm mistaken or mis read

    On average, you spent 440 each week and 218 during weekends.
    No I dIidn't
    Re trying YNAB again though for detailed home budget, thankfully I don't use much cash and can almost stick to 80-90 pounds per month groceries.
