Week 13

Week 13 and the end of MONTH 3! I can’t quite believe it. It feels like we did ok this week, despite having the big expense of all the bills coming in. Then during the weekend we travelled to Icheon to see The Red Hot Chili Peppers live – they were absolutely incredible 🙂 🙂 🙂 And in terms of The Brat Experiment the true brilliance was that we ended up getting our tickets for FREE (a saving of 320 000 won)!! And it goes without saying that the travel and other costs involved were 100% worth it 🙂

So I think that we JUST managed to scrape in under budget this month but I won’t know until I do the monthly report. 665 601 won is a little higher than I was hoping for this week though… The main money gobblers seems to be Fees & Bills and Travel… which is to be expected. So now it’s just a matter of seeing how we did in the month overall… Hold thumbs!
