I feel so poor 🙁 I know for a lot of people having a thousand pounds in the bank is a dream come true but this is the least amount of money I have had in a very long time. My poor flat still remains empty at home and I’ve not been back to tend to it although I do plan on getting up there this month even if I don’t go with work. So where did all the money go?
I’m actually quite pleased that I’m only £100 over budget but clearly my ratios were a bit off given that I overspent in every area except Essentials. If I’d been able to keep to my food and drink budget I would have actually been under budget this month but as always this is a work in progress.
August is going to be an insane time for me given I’m only in London for one weekend during it and I somehow need to find a flat and move during that time as well so you’ll notice a new Moving category in this months budget which is my deposit and first months rent budget. This is also technically a four-week budget until I go on my big holiday at the end of the month and I’ll be posting a mini budget and spending reports for that. I’m so glad almost everything is prepaid for!
God I can’t wait til my first London paycheque… just fourteen more sleeps!
