Around this time of the month every month I find myself filling baskets online of clothes, Skincare stuff and other general tat that I probably don’t need.
Getting Paid monthly is not the most fun thing but I think budgeting becomes so important when your wages only comes in once every four weeks.. sometimes a little longer depending.
Anyway I like to keep it simple by just having a little exec sheet saved with my usual expenses, phone bill and the likes things that are regular and then once i know what I’m getting paid just pop that figure in, deduct your expenses and then you know what the balance is that is left over to spend.. this is always the figure that i am watching because if it isn’t enough i need to streamline my online baskets and thats never fun.. 😦
As I’m writing this post I currently have tonnes of holiday clothes in an ASOS basket and a nice little boots basket full to the brim of skincare/grooming essentials. On top of that i have to pay for our flight to Budapest and start putting away some spending money all mixed in to the regular expenses.
Fingers crossed that this month my wages is like a phone number so that i can afford all the expenses and still buy my baskets.. If i can, expect a couple of haul posts – Hopefully.
Thanks for reading,
