Week 14 – Expense and Debt Update

Ok, so bit of a blow out this week. I also miscalculated last week how much money I had left after planned expense payments – and didn’t realise my error until midweek. I thought I had transferred my board payment of $140.00 to my mum’s account, but actually had not. So I thought I’d had an extra $140.00 kicking around – and rather than spend it, I applied it to my credit card 2. The payment I had planned for last weeks credit card #2 was $500.00 but I threw an extra $200.00 at it. Then realised my error – so it meant obviously needing to withdraw on that cash again.

What’s with the blow out? Well I was interstate again this weekend for a friend’s Hen’s night. Was a great night and I had a ball – but exact calculations of expenditure became somewhat sketchy after a few (read – many) cocktails….so I am just lumping my expenses for this weekend as Hen’s Weekend Expense. It does include train tickets, cab rides, snacks, payment for dinner, some new accessories etc. I didn’t just spend it all on alcohol 😉

  1. Oh well, I guess a minor setback along the way is inevitable. You are still doing great with your debt repayment and very soon you’ll reach a $10k mark, now how exciting would that be?! 😉 I hope you enjoyed your friend’s Hen party!
