The answer is, not too well. Or, not as well as I wanted it to? We weren’t well for some of the month and that just leads to spending more on convenience foods.
So, we have the categories as follows:
bills – electric, water, gas, mobiles and internet ¥50,000
–> Actually spent: ¥28,363
–> Actually spent: ¥34,903 (this is the one!!)
eating out/leisure ¥40,000
–> Actually spent: ¥26,864 (we did all right, still a lot of money if you consider it. I’d ideally like it around the ¥20,000 mark)
–> Actually spent: ¥50,000 (he had a lot of work events to attend)
emily (that’s me) ¥70,000
–> Actually spent: ¥9,972
–> Actually spent: ¥5,000
–> Actually spent: ¥0
That means we spent, with regards to this budget, ¥280,102 out of ¥385,000 so saved a grand total of ¥104, 898. Could be better and will be better!
