From my weekly budget of £20, I have spent:
- £4.49 – bubble wrap and brown paper for posting sold items, Toffifee.
- £0.60 – Cadbury’s fudge on three separate occasions
- £2.50 – Tortilla chips and chocolate from Sainsburys
- £3.00 – Chocolate from Thornton’s
Total – £10.59
£10 to savings (I took £0.59 out of change in my purse). However, I’m going to allocate £5 to actual savings and £5 to a replacement winter coat as mentioned in previous posts.
As part of decluttering and simplifying my wardrobe, I have got rid of a lot of clothes and am replacing some of them with classic items which I can wear for years to come. I sold a DVD boxset on Amazon, so I spent part of the profit from this on a white cardigan in a merino-cashmere blend which I can wear for work.
There was one clear item dominating the spend this week! I’m working on a project which is quite difficult and which has to be completed by the end of July. While my willpower is being used on this, I don’t have any left to resist chocolate. Unfortunately, eating a lot of chocolate tends to carry over to eating junk food generally: I’ve also had a takeaway and pizza this week! So I need to put some thought into making it easier to eat healthily and less convenient to buy chocolate.
