Frugal spend w/e 22/05/16

Untitled
Out of this week’s budget of £17.80 (£2.20 overspend last week), I have spent:

  • £2.25 – postage
  • £1.50 – drink at language meetup
  • £5.00 – sponsorship for a friend
  • £2.40 – train ticket
  • £5.00 – first direct debit for new phone contract
  • £1.50 – doughnuts

Total £17.65, £0.15 into savings.

Out of money redeemed from TopCashback (£65 – £19.01 remaining ), I have spent £29 on a meal with my Japanese group. I spent £16.99 to pay charges and close down an old bank account. It was historically linked to my Paypal account and a couple of charges had gone through on it, if I hadn’t selected to go onto my credit card. I had problems logging into the online banking and so I was charged for going into overdraft.
