Well just balanced my bank account/Freedom account from March and am very pleased indeed. Before I started this blog although not in debt, I seemed to be borrowing from one Freedom account to pay for another - this last month I have only done that for the £50 overspend in my Entertainment budget (I was going to start putting it up from £50 to £100 but have decided against it - there are other ways of enjoying things without spending money!)Although I have reduced my housekeeping I haven't been actually really on top of it (i.e. menu planning) so that's my goal over the next 2 months.
We are getting a new kitchen put in next week (will all be paid for using savings that we put aside for it - its tiny so not costing that much!)so I am not doing a big shop this week (no point - not putting it in cupboards to take it out again!) so meals will be bitty this week. I have taken my "before" pictures and will post them with my "after" pictures so watch this blog!
April housekeeping - £90.50
Holiday fund - £238.65 ( last hol cost £442)
My allowance I have left - £34.79
Entertainment - £22.48
Spent with money paid back - £307.25
All good stuff
