Well, I suck. I've burned through a stupid amount of money in the last week, and I've only myself to blame. And this awful cold I've gone down with, which makes me want to stay in bed all day - and y'know, not cook. Also, to compound matters, our drain clogged, so we were unable to do dishes. A dirty kitchen + a cold = take out. And take out = money burned for nothing.
I have had a few driving lessons as well (Â£100-worth) and I know that some of that emergency fund went on buying the tools to sort the drain out (which IS an emergency) but far more of it went on laziness. I could have bought microwave meals for a tenth of the price of eating out, but I didn't want to walk to the shop.
Because I felt miserable, I compounded the errors by spending money on quick-fix mood boosters... like chocolate. It would have been better off going to fresh fruit!
So. Major set back this month. Major money spent. Luckily it's pay day on Wednesday. But it looks like I'll be doing a very frugal thanksgiving for my other half.
On the plus side, it's money that I had, and not debt (the credit card solely went on groceries - the take-out came from my bank account - and will be paid off on Wednesday)
Here's hoping this cold clears up, and my drain doesn't clog up again.
Just curious - you do Thanksgiving in the UK now?
