Throughout 2018, I will be tracking every last penny I spend, and sharing it here weekly. I’m a (late) twenty-something lady, living in the North of England with my Other Half, commonly referred to as OH. I travel regularly for work, and often spend more time on the motorway than in my own home, which can often account for my fluctuating Car Expenses and entirely random Grocery costs! By the end of the year, I’m hoping to have a better overview of where my money goes to each month, and have a realistic long term savings plan in place (as well as the many other savings plans I have in my head, but you can read more about that here). You can also read the full series of my money diaries here.
Isn’t it amazing how quickly plans can change? My nice quiet chilled out weekend disappeared swiftly on Friday afternoon when a friend landed his zoo on me for pet-sitting duties.
So I spent my weekend hanging out with his two absolutely gooorgeous huskies, two rabbits and a cat. While it was very enjoyable, it was certainly not relaxing!
On the plus side, it did mean I was unable to go shopping, which had been pretty much my only plan for the weekend. I thought I was in need of a new winter coat, but having dug my old one out of the cupboard, it is like new! I don’t need to buy a new one at all!
I do still seem to have spent a lot of money though and I’m not really sure how? I can’t even blame it on my expenses this week!
