My name is Charlotte and I spend too much money. I also haven't posted on this blog since October last year and so I am a little rusty.
For months now I have been looking at how to fit in, in a blogging world where I felt like I was constantly questioning my standards, feeling like I didn't know what I wanted to write about but knowing that writing seemed to help. Then I remembered how happy I felt at the money bloggers conference last year surrounded by bloggers talking about saving money.
So, with a few goals in mind I thought I would start a money diary here. Starting next Monday every Monday there will be a money diary. I will be documenting everything that I spend and also everything that I want to buy but didn't. I am taking part in a no spend this month on *things* so no clothes, shoes, books, magazines etc you get it I'm not buying it.
Im also hoping to put at least 50% of my weekly earnings into my house/holiday savings. I am doing a nursing degree and I graduate in 2021 and I'd like to be able to buy a house within 6 months which may be a bit optimistic. Especially due to the fact that I refuse to give up my holidays. Nursing is hard! if I am going to get through it without going completely insane I need a week of sun each year!
Are you on a savings journey? Id love to read other blogs
