Guys, I’m gonna be honest I’m struggling…
I’ve been living on my own for about 5 months now, and I still haven’t got the hang of it.
In my head five months should be enough time to know how to handle my money, but I still don’t get it and its becoming a bad habit that the last week of the month I am scraping by. I’ve had to borrow money from my dad which I really hate doing because he works so hard and I don’t deserve it whatsoever. I’m going to pay him back but it’s just a tough process.
I know how I can improve, at the end of the day im still in old habits, like I need to stop eating out and going places so much. I think it comes from when I was at home I just wanted to get out so I kept busy with cinema and mini golf etc and im still in that mindset. Not only that but ive had bigger expenses such as im going away to Amsterdam and as much as I shouldn’t, I need it. Plus my car needed like £300 of work doing but I can’t afford to get a new car so hey that nearly broke my back basically.
Its difficult getting that balance between wanting to save money but not wanting to live under a rock. In all honesty I need a new job for more money, but because im doing my NVQ at the minute its difficult because I can’t leave until ive finished it which won’t be until October.
Ugh I hate that the world revolves around money and as much as I try to say it doesn’t, it most definitely does. I should be okay going forward as I have nothing big planned expense wise for the rest of the year, but if anything does go wrong I am majorly buggered. aaaah we will see, I may have to start selling body parts or something.
I am currently saving money each month but with Amsterdam and my car it’s all gone already.
Wish me luck, and any advise is much appreciated,
Lots of love,
A very broke and poor Sophiemagsx
