I am back after some time out! I have recently returned from Egypt- a bit of gamble many have said - but I had a fantastic time. It was great to have spend some stress free time with my boyfriend and recoup.
On the last day of the holiday Money was on my Mind. Typical me had taken plenty of spending money and spent it! As well as spending on my debit card. On one hand I have had a great time and it was money well spent, on the other hand I feel like I need to get some control! I am back in the UK and keeping my head down for the rest of the month.
So what am I going to do about it?
I am going to start drawing cash out at the start of the week. This will help me to realise just how much I am spending. I am constantly putting things on my debit card from chewing gum to clothes! Drawing out a weekly allowance will stagger my spending throughout the month. Hopefully I will not be wishing the month away to get to pay day.
I was speaking to some friends and they all said that their main problem is paying for items by card. So I will see how it goes. Fingers crossed!
