hi lisa I have not been keeping my receipts as it is just everyday spending, i.e fresh food milk etc, petrol and hairdresser every month, are these the nes I should be keeping as I didn't think I would need to for such small amounts

hi foggy, what would be classed as extra-ordinary spending, as I draw out the cash I have left each month for my spending I didn't think it would matter what I spent it on, because sometimes my hair costs more than I stated in my income and expenditure, but I have just been taking this out of my food money. thank you for your quick reply it is really appreciated

thank you so much, I feel much better now. I have nothing to hide, but just want to keep myself right.
