I fear IKEA...

Another Tuesday has dawned....dd wasn't up to going out so I got my hair done (why? in this wind and rain did I get a blow dry?????) so that's £25 down so far....

Then OH suggested a trip to IKEA for a meatball lunch.....£9.85 for that....then there was the dreaded walk round IKEA (yes, I shouldn't have done it...) but actually I was very restrained indeed - bought another pan (the set I got didn't have a middle sized pan), kitchen scissors, rubber gloves, washing up brushes and a stuffed rabbit for our granddaughter who is far too young for Easter eggs (which I must actually buy!) So I spent £23.45 which for me in IKEA is a world record.

(and when I have totalled up I realised I have gone over my £100 entertainment budget for this month and am now in debt to next month - this is not good!....I must get a grip as that's 3 budgets I have over-spent on this month - bad girl)

So this blog is making me plug the holes (or at least see where they are!) I am getting better and not just hoping that it all will balance. My eldest dd laughs at me as I wont lie on this blog and hope the spend just vanishes - first step to ruin if I did that....

March grocery spend - £250 and £65 from Aprils!
Holiday fund - £188.65 ( last hol cost £442)
My allowance I have left - £0 (and £4.51 from April)
Clothes - £8.35
Birthdays - £8.47
Household - £55.91
Entertainment - £100 (and £5.13 in debt to April)
Spent with money paid back - £307.25
