Around a month ago, I decided to begin an experiment whereby I attempted to live on a 3 day week salary, just to see if I could. I think I spend rather a lot of money on just, well, stuff really. I'm never quite sure where it's gone at the end of the month!
So, the beginning of the month, I removed two fifths of my earnings and put them in my savings account.
It's actually been very difficult and very eye opening living on a very small budget. When did biscuits get so expensive?! But I got to the end of this month on budget, yay!
On the recommendation of some friends, I've dowloaded a free trial of some software called You Need a Budget. It's amazing and I will definitely be buying it at the end of the trial. I'm a complete dunce at both maths and spreadsheets, but it's SO easy to use!
And the best thing about pretending I only work three days a week is that I have the other bit of my salary left at the end of the month to buy power tools and camera equipment, hurrah!
