I got paid today and most of it is gone already. It’s not a surprise ‘cos I planned it this way (money taken for rent, credit card payment, savings, etc etc). But it is still simply depressing to see the numbers in my bank account go down. The amount I have control over now for the rest of the month is JPY50,000, JPY30,000 of which should be reserved for food (assuming we spend JPY 7,000 per week in the month). So, that leaves me JPY20,000 for me to survive on….hmmm. If I can lower utility bills (especially electricity and gas), I can have more money to freely use or save….Let’s see what I can do.
