|Gladstone's Budget Box|
Thankfully, all those one off-ish purchases are now reducing to a trickle. Consequently now is the time that it feels right to set myself a daily budget to meet costs of groceries, diesel, clothing, going out, treats and other odds and sods. Depending on your perspective I've allowed myself the eye wateringly generous or penny pinching sum of twenty pounds a day.
And my own take on the matter? Well, this amount seems right on the money. Enough so I don't feel like I'm living on the poverty line but not so much that I can live profligately buying whatever takes my fancy. What I'm hoping is that I'll be more mindful about what I spend and if it all works out perhaps there'll be enough over for another trip away and to be generous to someone, somewhere who needs a bit more financial support than I do.
