Financial update

April 15th, 2010 at 08:50 am

I've been slacking off... meant to update when I got paid but decided not to. The reason being is that I don't have any good news to report.

Got paid on Friday. Went out for a meal for my friend's birthday. Me and Hubby both spent all of the money we had with us. Not good - I wanted to come back with some money.

On Friday Hubby had a funeral to go to. We went to his gran's grave after the funeral. We didn't find out until the day before the funeral when it was so that was more unplanned spending.

Saturday we got invited to the pub at the last minute. More spending. We enjoyed ourselves though.

I checked my bank balance and after my direct debits come out I will only have 9 left. Nine pounds! It's crazy, I worked overtime last month (only two shifts but still) There's money in the bank just, it's just allocated for other things.

The only good news I have to report is that I added to my Christmas savings and I only have 70 left to pay back MIL and then that's her out of the way. That won't be until next month though.

Hope everyone's having a good day! I'm off to read your blogs now.

    It's true that one weekend can really lead one to shoot a hole in the budget! The good news is that there is still SOMETHING in the account to get you through (very frugally). I was reading about your emergency fund goal in another post and I think that 500 pounds is a great amount to get to... it offers a little insurance buffer for you. Good luck!
