At the beginning of August 2016 I put 150€ in cash in a ceramic Marks and Spencer Stilton jar. This was obviously a mistake as August has 31 days, but never mind.
Shopping for food I eat comes out of the pot. If I am invited to eat elsewhere, the pot generally pays for anything I take, such as wine, nibbles or pudding.
The table is a running total of budget at 5€ a day vs. what is actually left in the pot.
|Month||Month start||Month end||Daily|
|January 2017||218,37€||27,46€||6,15€ *|
- December 2016 and January 2017 are slightly guesstimated because I was absent for the last week of December (and being cooked-for by my mother, bless) then had a friend here for the first week of January 2017 with whom I shared food-spending (there was quite a lot of sparkle-fizz).
