No big surprises in my spending diary, and have now reached a total of six No Spend Days. Obviously I did spend more than normal as I went to London, but even so did not go too mad.

I could technically have got more no spend days in, but I have a lot of money off coupons to use up this month, so it’s financially more sensible to do small regular shops in Tesco to ensure I use these up, rather than one big one.

I will keep on with the spending diary until the end of the month, but it has really just confirmed to me that I’m not a spendthrift, and I don’t think that there is really any wastage that needs plugging anywhere: I’m happy with the overall level of spending.
