I am saving money but feel guilty when I spend it watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently studying for a HNC part time and I have a full time job and I am currently on a very good wage. I am still living at home so I have very few outgoings every month when I get paid. I pay my parents £150 just to help with bills and things, I have a £200 direct debit that goes straight from my bank account into my Help to Buy ISA. After this the only outgoings I know I will definitely have are for my car, my gym and my payments for Netflix and Amazon Prime. I also transfer around £200-£300 into just a regular savings account.

    I would say I am sensible with my money and save a lot per month however, whenever I feel like treating myself I always feel guilty after it. For example I have been after a new pair of trainers for ages so today being payday I bought them, they weren't expensive they were only £50 but I feel guilty for spending money on myself.

    Has anybody got any advice on how to stop feeling guilty when I buy myself something?
