We did well this week – spent the least we have all month 🙂 Our ratio of necessary vs indulgence is not as good as last week though. But that’s all good. And unless we completely bugger up this next week, it looks like we are on track to stay within our new budget plan. Only problem is… that we might just totally bugger our budget up… cause this weekend we are travelling to Seoul to see The Red Hot Chili Peppers (hell yes!!!!!!!!!) and the tickets still aren’t paid for… Wish us luck, dear Reader!
