I’m going to start saving any leftover food budget towards counselling sessions for my husband and me in the future. Sessions with our local branch of Relate cost £40/hour, plus an initial consultation fee of £35, so I’d like to save £435 to cover ten sessions.

Counselling budget – £38.17/£435 – 9%
