Woohoo! I made it past week one on budget and without becoming a hermit! Living on a
budget definitely takes organisation- remembering to make lunches the night before,
shopping in budget supermarkets like aldi and lidl rather than going to convenience shops.
I have to say that i did eat very well on the budget and didn't have to resort to junk food
or cereal for dinner any night. Eating out and coffees fall by the wayside and i haven't had phone
credit since saturday afternoon. This is the longest i've gone without credit in years! Socialising takes imagination as dinners out and the pub are a bit out of the question on such a small budget.
Bus to and from work: 3.70
Total spend for the day: 11.40
Total spend for the week: 98.65
Verdict: Within budget for week 1- Bring on week 2 of the challenge!
