I cannot believe this is the sixth post in my SAVE don't SPEND series! It's actually been really helpful in making me understand where I'm spending money, and I've devised a little plan to help me save and be debt-free by the summer at the same time! If I continue to spend as close to £80/week as possible I will be on course to pay off my credit card debt (which is actually interest free so a sensible debt not a silly one!) but I will also have some pennies put away for a rainy day. This 'plan' makes me feel much more optimistic and in control of my finances - I really recommend trying to write down everything you spend for a week and see whether it could make a difference to you too!

I went a little over this week but my Mum came to London to visit so I decided to treat her to the cinema - we went to see Les Mis together! £10 - it's not the end of the world is it? I feel like my spending ban is going really well now and I'm definitely into the swing of things! But I have been thinking about what I might like to treat myself to at the end of the spending ban and here's what I've thought of so far:
Are you on a spending ban? How are you getting on?
