The normal boring things. Food, Bill's, petrol for car.
Oh yes a little bit of self indulgence. Clothes, lingerie.

I've been working since I was 16 and I still live at home. I'm not a big spender at all - I dislike spending money unless I really need to! :P I keep a monthly log of my incomings and outgoings and make sure I always have more coming in than going out. I only ever have more going out than in near the Christmas period.

How much are those things. like 1k or something?

not worth it imo

my smartphone cost me 60 quid, it was 3g internet, it has andriod, it has a decent camera, it can make and recieve calls, it doesn't look dated

that's all you need basically.
i'm surprised at 3G though, it's faster than my old 4g smartphone.. ?

Thanks and no I'm not an accountant - I just like being organised... and using spreadsheets. :lol: It would feel irresponsible to ignore what's going on in my bank! I always check that what's going out is correct too! I see my money as my ticket to my future so it's kind of important. :P
