spend so far (before bills etc): washing machine, telly, ps3, car repairs, 800 drum & bass records.
That's a little excessive, where do you find the time to buy 800 records already?
He's sold 100 in a couple of months via discogs and made £300. He's prepared to punt the rest for £300 in a one shot. I'll probably sell a few over time and just keep the rest. Everybody wins.
have £100 left over for the rest of the month now :/
hurts so bad
but there hasn't been a weekend yet so WE'LL SEE.
i can technically survive assuming i see no one. that's a risk i think i'm willing to take to not be skint
cause moving flat at the end of the month which will cost a fair bit.
But then again I like going out to brunch and going to expensive yoga classes so not sure how its going to pan out.
i love how inevitable it all seems. 'i mean yeah i'll be fine if i don't do bruch but... i... i *do* do brunch'
you can do it, i believe in you.
Thanks for your support bbz xx
I'm planning to buy some trousers (work); trousers (casual); trousers (technical) AND some headphones.
Listening to music whilst having covered legs. Oh baby.
about £14K for a coke or something. Bloody london.
and then take everything and spit the ticket in your face
overspending during December, and being paid a week early so having to stretch December's salary over 5 weeks.
Getting paid before Christmas Eve = :D
Realising you have to go about six weekends before the next payday = :(
got a Big Christmas bonus. Had already spent it before Christmas day. :(
Instead I was so bored I spent every day in local coffee shops, going for lunch, and every evening in the pub.
I had four or five pub lunches in the space of a week, plus coffees, over a tenner in parking costs, and £40 on petrol.
in any month.
give me your salary for a month and i guarantee i will destroy it WITHOUT accruing anything of any worth at all.
my autofill for that was brilliant
Every eventuality covered.
that's even nicer than "THEO BELIEVE"
mod can achieve
sean one you will
You will when will believe
to hire some pest controllers to get the squirrel(s) out of my roof space. Value for money.
not really, but that was my last extravagance for the month
got some evening meeting money coming in at the end of the month so hopefully it should balance out if i dont go crazy (i.e leave my house)
I vowed not to spend any more money until the weekend after splurging on the steam sale (despite having a backlog of games that could well last me the rest of my life) and within half an hour I'm on amazon ordering a replacement garlic crusher thing. Because I couldn't just slice garlic for a couple of weeks. Oh no.
However it appears that I have -£500 pounds and a) my rent hasn't come out b) I haven't bought my ma a present for her birthday TOMORROW c) oh dear
I'm going to the pub.
Times are tough
i'd offer to lend, but, y'know, Yorkshireman
i always just think it's about the scottish
My friend used to do business with a Scottish Jew. Said he was genuinely the most generous person he'd ever met.
I'm not /that/ generous though.
i have to buy my railcard tomorrow and it's going to hurt
In a bit of a quandary actually. Bought a load of beer (72 cans to be exact) for the house which I was going to ask everyone to chip in for. Thing is though I think two of the crates got stolen by a neighbour on NYE before my housemates had a chance to dig in. Do I still ask them to chip in for something they didn't really use? It's not bloody fair. And yesterday my phone called Canada for 20 minutes. FS.
either sort that beforehand or just treat your mates to a beer
Didn't realise my house would be invaded by fucking freeloaders though. They took my bottle of Southern Comfort too.
i admire your generosity anyway. that's worth something
1. I'd bring it up about how it was annoying and what your plan was and hope they offer
2. Was the phone call a pocket call? Is Tim back in Canada now?
Think Tim went back today. It wasn't him who I called whoever. Was someone from a the band Islands *boast*.
They were nice that time they stayed at your house...
Was probably more likely one of his waster mates as well.
This was all agreed to in advance. No one has paid me yet. I could really do with that money. I know they're all thinking 'it's only £12, it can wait', but collectively, it's a ball ache.
after everything else has come out, we've got £130 to last us til the 18th :/
nearly a tenner a day? that seems alright
£130 left over that doesn't need to be spent on anything. enjoy january!
i know that doesn't work but imagine you'd said somerset
so it's £130 to feed four of us for two weeks, plus nappies etc for our youngest. We should be okay though
I'm going to continue ostrich-style until the day before my rent's due. Then shit gets real.
Jan the same. I should get a payrise in the net few weeks to we will see. but feb is 28 days so that's always good.
thank you again man. went with Batofar, and took your recommendation on a ton of restaurants too. you were right - almost EVERYTHING else was closed!
but le comptoir wasn't! and i also had the falafel you mentioned too. Awesome.
got paid £21, to last me threw January..... yeaaaah about that
- bought a tablet (£200)
- booked Spanish lessons (£85)
- got a huge phone bill from using my mobile in america (£73)
- just booked my ticket for United (£56)
and it's not even close to pay day.UH OH
I've got loads of money to spend. I havent taken anything out my accoutn since 20th December :o)
I bought some train tickets to Manchester. That cost money.
I bought 2 bags of pasta in aldi the other day. TWO.
and you bought a bag of pasta and just started eatign the shells like sweets at the till? Still embarrassed for you.
Yeah, it wasn't as embarrassing as when you pissed yourself in the middle of Northumberland Street and all those kids started pointing and laughing, though, was it. Just proper mortifying.
Until you asked for a plate at greggs like some kind of princess
She TOLD you she was married and you just kept trying for her phone number, it was desperate as. I can't go back in that greggs now.
That means "sexy bastard" where Im from. Shouldve been colloquialsm free
doesn't mean that you get to harrass old women from Byker. Give it up, man.
this conversation escalated quickly
Normally Ive spent less than I thought, but its still scary sometimes
I just avoid looking at the account until the latest possible moment and then realise I had even LESS than I expected
TEXTBOOK DAY SOON AS WELL
I *think* I only have to spend forty quid this time.
do you not need them?
or do you just go down library?
I like having several thousands of pages of physics on the shelf. Makes me feel like a professional
i hate having archaeology in my personal space FUCK OFF ARCHAEOLOGY
Can't wait to be within five hundred pounds of a positive bank balance!!!!!!!!!!!
what a G
By seemingly nothing I mean bills and paying people money I owe them.
It probably doesn't sound like a lot to most of you but it's about 40% of my salary.
I need to buy less crap this month.
So i'm quids in. Went to the pub for a bit last night, but i was with some people who didn't seem to be getting charged for their drinks at the bar. Make that a triple Balvenie Port Wood 21, thanks bartender!
Yeah, if I lay low today I can probably get away with being pretty rolling in it by the weekend.
1. I still have a weekend in Scotland to get through
2. I need to buy that laser
3. I need to buy a ticket back to London this Sunday.
I can lift up fairly robust men using just one arm, mind you.
such a good burn too: YOU SMUG BUTCH.
smug femme up there.
5 weeks in January. :(
i've spent <£20 on groceries and fruit juice (can't actually drink anymore in combination with certain autoimmune/lupus meds)
I hope you start feeling better soon.
...rent payment bounced :D
I feel for you <3
spent all of the 1st and some of the 2nd in the pub, went out for tea last night, spent like £35 in asda today. it's fine, some people have nothing.
That's like thirteen weekends. What the fuck?
I've basically drunk all my wages.
£100 left till the 25th. Fuck. I'm looking at this as a good thing. Stay in. Read more. Learn to be a loner again.
but all my money is spent. every month.
This month I've already: gone to a very drunken up-til-8am chalet party; seen 65daysofstatic + bought some merch; went to the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the MCA; bought loads of (cheap) clothes; about to purchase a ticket for tonight's Blood Red Shoes gig. I haven't worked in two weeks - I'm on a contract and paid hourly - and I have more rent to pay next week. I won't get paid again until the week after. So yeah, I've spent too much. Might use a free cinema ticket I've saved for Life of Pi tomorrow though.
...or close to it.
this is craven boastfulness disguised as angst
