Frugal spend – w/e 29/11/15

Out of this week’s budget of £20.00, I have spent:

  • Japan Centre various Japanese ingredients – £8.38
  • Dinner for a friend and me – £12.98
  • Cinema ticket – £6.20
  • Drink at cinema – £1.50

Total £29.06, -£9.06 into savings.

I overspent by a large percentage this week, but I did some out-of-the-ordinary activities so it’s to be expected. Unfortunately, with this being Christmas season and more social activities in the pipeline, I don’t expect to be able to recover the overspend next week.

My holiday spend from 19-24 November is detailed in a separate post.
