A thorough review of my spending is well overdue. At the moment I’m spending well over £2,000 each month. I need to reduce that significantly if I want to be in with a chance to have a decent deposit by the end of this year. Now is the time to make sacrifices and dial down the spending in order to maximise my savings. Saving £2,500 per month whilst spending only £1,700 seems like wishful thinking given my spending record, but I have to find a way of making that happen to be able to have a meaningful deposit by the end of the year.
