Frugal – spend cut – w/e 23/08/15

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

  • £1.00 – chocolate
  • £2.40 – return train to Birmingham
  • £22.00 – Japanese group dinner
  • £6.95 – drink and snack in Birmingham
  • £2.40 – train ticket

Total £34.95, -£14.95 into savings. I overspent by quite a lot, partly because the dinner was more expensive than I thought it would be, and partly because I had to take a second trip into Birmingham this week rather than next week. I’ll take £14.95 from next week’s budget.

I made around £100 in eBay sales, and spent £10 on a Scholl Express Pedi (a 75% saving on the shop price).
