Well there is now no way I can come in under budget this month.
With six days to go I have spent £2268 and my total budget for the month was £2274. By the time the month is through, I’ll probably be well over that figure.
I have already started reviewing what I spent the money on but I will need to do a full retrospective of the month to figure out where I went wrong. There were some extraordinary expenses (EE) which I could’ve definitely controlled better. I reckon by the time I’ve done the retro, the damage of those EEs will be around £550-£600. Even if I had managed to halve those EEs I would be just under 2K right now in expenses.
Some bad decisions were made this month and I’ll have to learn from them.
