Week 43 – Spend and Debt update

Week 43 report 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. Grocery spend – although variable, is outlined in my fortnightly budget too.

Spending funds allocated for Week 43 – $35.55 – yep, super duper small allowance this week! I am heading to New Zealand next week (YAY!) so really wanted to channel as much cash as possible into my spending for NZ!

Actual funds spent for Week 42 – $24.85. Under budget! Yay!

Monday: No spend.

Tuesday: No spend

Wednesday: No spend

Thursday: $7.45 lunch takeaway

Friday: $4.95 coffee, $5.95 lunch, $1.00 movie rental

Saturday: $2.00 movie rental

Sunday: $3.50 coffee

I passed my 2 spend free days per week challenge, actually had 3 days!!

Starting debt at March 2013: $14,774.12

Current Debt: $5,850.05

Debt paid: $8,924.07 divided by 43 weeks = $207. 53  debt repayment per week on average

  1. Nicely done – I have a bunch of no spend days (until the weekends) and that’s because I work on a farm so I typically smell like cow pooh haha and I don’t want to go out in public.

  2. Debt hater says:

    Great job on your spending this week, that was a really small budget and you even ended up coming under that. I’d definitely be doing the same if I had a vacation to New Zealand (or anywhere!) coming up, so enjoy that 🙂

    • Thanks! I didn’t mind having a frugal week for a good cause! Looking forward to the trip – even if it is just a week 🙂 as it will be my only holiday until Dec this year when I plan to go backpacking again! Thanks for your comment 🙂
