Spend Free April? How Did It Go?!

For those of you who don’t know, I promised to myself I would have a spend free month, taking note of every expense I made, and avoiding buying makeup, clothes, eating out, all the usual expenses I rack up.

I mean, I failed. I booked a holiday for crying out loud! However, it was fascinating to see just how much I spend where in my life!

First thing to note, April was a really hard month to attempt this! I didn’t have WiFi at home for over two weeks! Meaning I spent a lot of time in coffee shops using their WiFi, I also paid for BT Hotspots for the second week. It also made me pretty grumpy, which is actually when I spend more! Overall, it was a pretty spendy week in that department.

However, here are my expenses for the month:


So, with my income being as low as it is… I managed to save all of £24 this month…. wow…. haha! However, it was not a wasted exercise. It made me realise just how much I actually spend on food a month! It doesn’t look like much when you see it on mobile banking (£2 here, £3.15 there), but by golly does it all add up! Also, my monthly outgoings are ridiculous, with my phone, various insurances, Netflix, Amazon, etc.etc…. wow

So, not entirely successful, but very useful!
