Money Diaries: Night Shift


Since June this year, I have been consistently writing down how much I spend every day among other things. Seeing it written down on my daily journal makes me reconsider my spending habits and lets me see just where I spend so much money and how to cut back. If you guys remember, I made a personal finance blog months back but maintaining two blogs is so hard, so I’m incorporating that to my personal blog. I’ll be sharing my financial diaries occasionally – maybe when I have some events affecting my finances.

Budget for a Week

I gave myself a $25 Budget for a week because I need to start paying for the money I took off my savings account while I was out travelling the past months. And I need to have a decent account balance for when I apply for a Korean VISA. And also because, frankly, I lost all my money-savings skills that I acquired last year. I need to have it back!

I actually debated posting this one but you guys reacted so positively on this post I made last month that’s about saving/earning more money.
