It was always going to be an expensive day today, as the rent comes out at the beginning of the month, and at £450, it is by far my biggest outgoing. I have thought of moving somewhere cheaper, but i just don't think it would be possible, unless i moved into a shared house, which i don't particularly want to do. Besides which, that £450 per month is an absolute bargain for what I get – A two bedroom terrace house with council tax and TV licence included, on top of which, its only 5 minutes cycle away from work!! I would have to be crazy to move anywhere else without really good reason!!
My second outgoing of the day, was £6.00 for the lottery I pay into at work. It goes without saying that we have never won big yet, and I could probably save myself £150 throughout the year by not doing it. On the other hand, if by some miracle, the syndicate does win, i don't want to be the only titty bollock turning up for work on a Monday morning when everyone else is enjoying their winnings on a beach in Barbados!
So £456 spend for the day, which has been added to the monthly spreadsheet which can be found here – April 2013 Daily Spend
