macbook pro 14" with m2 chip when they come out? :)
Definitely not! I barely use my laptop for much more than internet browsing so no need to spend lots on one, hopefully looking at £350 or less

Well my plan to be more sociable was going well, however money is getting tougher so I'm not sure how it'll go for the rest of the year

I was discussing this with an online friend last night. We both had made the effort to be more social, but it is costing too much money. I simply can't afford it. Even just traveling to go to others is tough for me, I don't want to be that person that constantly asks people to come to my place, or help cover cost of just having a coffee somewhere. Or heck, let alone go on vacation on my own for a weekend. Life's stupid like that.

I'm still spending way too much money on food, Christmas is almost done though, so less spending on that now. But I've fallen into an odd mindset of I must buy stuff to entertain me throughout winter, but I already had plenty to do, however now I have even more jigsaws books, that I'll probably not have time to do. It's not a lot of spending but it all adds up.

I have read a few books lately, but I'm still not reading as much as I would like.

Hoping to get credit card paid off by the end of the year, was going to do it next payday, but I've now used it again and don't think I'll be able to until December now. But it will be done and then not used next year unless emergency

Welp it's not going so great so far and it's nearly the end of the year!!!
Not managed to keep any weight loss off.
Managed to save a bit of money but no where near as much as I had hoped as money keeps on being spent on essentials.

Have to think about what goals I have for next year, get credit card done with, hopefully I'll have that done this year though. I'm going on holiday though, so pay for that, and spending/new clothes

Planned spends for 2023

Things I'd like to save up to get:

Electric toothbrush - mine dies far too quickly now
Larger cat scratching post, he's outgrown the ones he has
Laptop - more of a want than a need as I rarely actually use it these days
Excursions for cruise
Jeans - hoping for a gift card or two from my brother for Christmas for these

Jinxed it, fitbit has died so hopefully getting a new one today instead. So much for paying off the credit card

Got the fitbit, and used Christmas money to pay off credit card. So still poor but debt free again!

Got Next gift card so I can get the new jeans, and possibly undies too!
