Frugal – spend cut – w/e 11/01/15

From my weekly budget of £20, I have spent:

  • £0

Total – £0

I was back at work, and didn’t go out in the evenings, so didn’t need to spend anything. At the weekend I visited family and there were no expenses involved from my weekly  budget.

£10 is being carried forward to next week as I know there will be some extra spend. £10 is going into savings.

I save money from our weekly food budget to cover meals out, so £24 was spent from there on a family birthday lunch for my sister.

Last year I changed my current account to Marks and Spencers via MoneySavingExpert, in order to get a £125 M&S voucher. I bought some new jeans with the voucher for £18. My current jeans are a few years old, a bit too big and getting quite faded, so they did need to be replaced and I’m glad that I could do it for “free”.

From my present budget, I gave my nephew £20 for his birthday. My siblings and I agreed a couple of years ago that we would no longer exchange Christmas presents, and since my birthday last year we agreed not to exchange birthday presents. Therefore, I didn’t spend anything on my sister’s birthday apart from the lunch cost mentioned above.

  1. I’ve found that we haven’t needed to buy much either in the after Christmas period. Not quite $0, but certainly a lot lower than our normal budget. Well done for spending nothing! 🙂
