3 things I want to achieve in 2018.
Budgeting & finances.
This is a big one for me that I absolutely want to get right next year. As an ex-accountant, you'd think I'd have my finances a little more in check than I do right now. Not to make excuses, but my move to London hit the little old bank account harder than expected, and I guess I've struggled to 'catch up' since.
Obviously, things are a lot more expensive in London than in the North West, and so I think I need to draw up a proper budget again and keep track of what I'm spending.
First task is to do exactly that; keep track. I'm going to spend a week or two just listing out everything that I buy. Every coffee, every train ticket, every totally-unnecessary-clothes-purchase, too, and then I'll go from there in allocating myself how much of my monthly salary I can spend on what - making sure to save some too, of course!
