The Northern Girl’s money diaries – Week 7 with Abigail

Hi my name is Abigail, I am 20 years old and I am currently a student. I am currently coming to the end of my undergraduate Psychology degree and I am planning on starting a masters in September. I currently blog at, which is mainly a lifestyle blog with a mix of book reviews and Disney posts. 

Monthly expenditure 

  • Board – £125
  • Phone bill – £12
  • Subscriptions – £23.98
  • Travel – 46.80

1. What does a typical week look like for you? 

It varies to be honest. Whilst I was at university I was in two-three days a week. The thing about being a student is that often your week can change so you don’t always have the same things going on and because you don’t have regular money coming in, as you get your grants and loans periodically, you have to really budget in travel costs and food costs. 

2. What are your usual guilty spends, what can’t you resist buying over and over?

In honesty, I’ve never been the type of person to spend money on things I’ve considered unnecessary but recently I’ve been a sucker for buying clothes from forever 21. I don’t know what it is but I just have an obsession.

3. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought? 

Probably a phone as my current phone cost me around £125. 

4. Are you saving for anything in particular at the moment? 

Unfortunately, I don’t have any savings at the moment. However, I am hoping to get a job or even if I go on to do a masters I will be able to start saving some money so me and my boyfriend can get our own place.

5. If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would go out and buy? 

I would probably buy a piece of land so I could build my dream home. I’ve always loved the idea of building my own home and I would make sure that it was big enough for a family and my mum so she wouldn’t have to worry about paying rent.

6. If money was no object what would be your dream travel destination?

I would love to do a tour around the 50 states! 

7. What’s the best money advice/tip you’ve ever received? 

I honestly don’t recall anyone giving me money advice but I always learnt from my mum to be a savvy shopper and to look for the best deals. 

Thanks Abigail for your involvement, if you’d like to be featured in my money diaries series leave me a comment and I’ll send you the template!
