Week 12 – Expense and Debt Update

This week, I set myself a $15.00 limit on coffees. Pleased to say that I did stick within that limit – exactly $15 – and it reduced the inner angst of coffee purchasing! (I found a cafe  that does ‘happy hour’ coffee for $2.50 between 10 -11am )

Here are my week 12 stats:

Total Income 

  •  $0.00 (this was not my pay week)

Spending / Expenses:

(Amounts in italics are included in my regular monthly expense budget as listed in this previous post)

  • Monday: $8.20 card and postage
  • Tuesday: $15.00 vitamins, $38.85  facewash, $4.30 coffee, $6.95 moisturiser, $2.00 chocolate, $30.00 phone recharge credit
  •  Wednesday: $3.30 coffee, $29.00 loan insurance
  • Thursday: $2.50 coffee, $8.95 takeaway dinner
  • Friday:  $50.00 travel, $4.90 coffee, $4.20 celebrity magazine (these mags are SUCH a waste of money. I really need to stop!)
  • Saturday: $20.50 breakfast for me and mum, $31.57 face cream, shampoo and conditioner
  • Sunday: $178.00 loan repayment

Total Expenses / spend: $438.22

86 days has past since I started my Debt Smashing Mission – on average, I’m paying off $38.14 of debt per day. That doesn’t really seem like much, considering I earn $159.50 per day? It certainly FEELS like Im paying more than that for all the effort ha. Interesting…

  1. slowly it will come down! Just think how much you would save if you gave up the coffee habit all together…bought a coffee machine and made it yourself
