Subway: £3.19 (Meatballs with extra cheese and south west sauce, good but unnecessary)

Budget Remaining: £140.31

29th Oct 08. Back at it for Christmas

I have been very bad indeed with my lack of budget tracking, I can’t believe its been so long since I did this. Luckily my spending hasn’t got too out of control in that time but I know that when I’m not jotting everything down I definately buy a few things here and there that I shouldn’t. So I’m back on track with a new budget and renewed commitment. As punishment I’m allowing myself just £175 for November. Plus I’m going to keep track of my Christmas and Birthday present fund, which is going to be £450 in total. Its frightening to see it in one lump sum like that, especially considering I’m having a budget Christmas this year. Its my boyfriend’s, sister’s and niece’s birthdays in November and December though so they’ll also be included.

So I’ll get back to it from Saturday and it will hopefully help me to keep Christmas on track, especially all those extra nights out that seem to happen.
