Week 5: I’m not so sure…

This week was a short week (Monday and Tuesday were part of Month 1) so our budget was technically 160 000 won for the both of us. But I already know that we blew that out of the water. These bloody bills, or in this case a school union fee, are killing us… Plan 1 definitely doesn’t take proper account of the bills…

 

18 000 won Dinner out Indulgence to celebrate payday. Problem was the meal was horrible so it didn’t feel like much of a celebration…
3850 won Groceries Milk and ice cream. Necessary. Well not the ice cream. But something needed to save the horrid meal we had just had…
7800 won Acupuncture Necessary. And really helpful for those of you who have never tried it 🙂
5300 won Acupuncture Necessary
2800 won Taxi Necessary so as not to undo what was achieved with acupuncture.
26 400 won Brewing pot Necessary for Husband to brew beer (and so live in line with what we think is valuable).
19 800 won Clothes Necessary. And on sale 🙂
3500 won Beer Indulgence. But from the grocery store so cheap.
6000 won Acupuncture Necessary
11 280 won Groceries Necessary
45 000 won Bag Indulgence. But thought about it for over a month and ultimately decided it was worth the money.
700 won Soft drink Indulgence
15 000 won Gifts Hats for our grandmothers. Necessary.
3600 won Taxi Necessary so as not to undo what was achieved with acupuncture.
3300 won Taxi Necessary so as not to undo what was achieved with acupuncture.
46 860 won Groceries Necessary
121 500 won School union fee Necessary. And 6 months’ worth of fees.
850 won Water at beach Indulgence

 

Week’s total: 341 542 won

Necessary: 273 490 won (80%)

Indulgence: 68 050 won (20%)

 

So… not great. But again, I am stoked with the necessary vs indulgent ratio. Although, to be honest, dear Reader, some things that I have labelled as “necessary” we could technically survive without…
