Well, as planned, today was another no-spend day. How I now love those days. As a result, I made up ground of £40 which brings me to just about 2% over plan for this time of the month.
Although I am one no-spend day away from being back in the green, Saturday is a day with friends so I imagine there will be some spending to keep me over budget. I will try though to minimise that spending as much as possible.
One of the things I’ve like most about tracking my expenditure in this level of detail is how much motivation it’s given me to save money and how much I want to win at this game of coming in under budget. The game is well and truly on. If I succeed, I’ll have to think up some sort of reward for myself and perhaps a penalty if I fail.
