    - £150 on a bigger hutch for my rabbits and some materials for a run
    - £30 on some new add ons for my gerbil cage
    - £45 on some chickens
    - £20 on some materials for fixing up my shed for the chickens.
    - £15 for food, bedding, mealworm, seeds and mite powder for chickens
    - around £10 on food, bedding and little extras for gerbils, mice and rabbits
    - £5 on squeaky toys for my dog
    - possibly spending £20 on a good undercoat brush for my dog tonight.
    -£12 for a sack of rabbit food.


    this month is an expensive month but you get the idea.... I don't have to spend those amounts of money I just enjoy giving them more space and things when I can.

    Sadly, most of my money is saved for fieldwork. It sucks that for my degree i have to spend my money on compulsory fieldwork. I think it should either be added to my tuition fees (so i just get a bigger loan for it and pay it off later) or all paid for by my school but no, i'm having to scrimp and save my way through university to find loads of money for fieldwork. Last year's was only about £250 but this years is £250 in the easter, £100 in the summer and then a 6 week mapping report which will end up costing something like £600. It's a good thing i've got a bursary otherwise i'd be completely ******. Also, i'm going on tour with one of the music groups i play in so that's another £250 that's just about killing off my bursary!

    I think the only thing that i buy for myself now except for food is a pint or 2 at the pub and recently a bit of clarinet music i've been looking for but that's on ebay and costs a few pounds!

    Well this month I had to have eyes tested and get new glasses, that was £130 all together, something I found very hard to afford TBH. But usually its my kids that seem to drain away money :p: . I dont have any nights out, new clothes, holidays yada yada as we cannot afford them .

    Oh and around £80 a month on diesel for my hubbys car!.He works quite a way away, thats why he has to spend so much on fuel.

    Food, petrol, random bits for motorbike which I usually cant actually afford.... casino, beer, insurance for car + bike.

    I live a very expensive lifestyle for a student, but then I put in the hours at work to pay for it.

    Seeing as other than the no nos that is about it (transport is only like 20/month for me term time)

    That is depressing.
