This is my first weekly stats update for awhile! I’m now in the 40’s weeks. The Debt Breakup has been around almost a year 🙂
To keep things simple, moving forward I will only be reporting on my expenses that come from my allocated ‘spending allowance’ per week. All other regular and fixed expenses are outlined in my budget here and automatically debited etc.
By tracking my spending expenses on these updates, you guys can see if I have stuck with my allocated allowance for the week! With all other regular expenses allocated, the spending allowance really will be the make or break of my budget if I consistently meet (or don’t meet) the target.
Spending funds allocated for Week 42 – $90.00
Actual funds spent for Week 42 – $102.35
$12.35 overspent – not too bad considering I wasn’t expecting to go to the lunch on Thursday
Monday: No spend.
Tuesday: No spend
Wednesday: $7.95 lunch
Thursday: $15.00 lunch (this was a work lunch which I kinda had to go too)
Friday: $10.00 lunch for bf, $12.95 gift, $4.95 card, $19.00 drinks
Saturday: $8.50 coffee, $11.00 shoes
Sunday: $13.00 breakfast
I passed my 2 spend free days per week challenge 🙂
Starting debt at March 2013: $14,774.12
Current Debt: $5,925.05
Debt paid: $8849.07 divided by 42 weeks = $210.69 debt repayment per week on average
