Hey guys, starting up a sale thread of my collection so that people on here can get first dibs before I send the rest over to eBay.

Located in Southern California, should shipping end up being a consideration for the weight of large shipments. Will be shipping out via USPS Media when applicable, if not the next grade up.

A week in Suffolk, UK on £28,785
Job Title: Project Officer
Salary Pre-deductions £28,785
Pension (6%) £132 per month (pre tax) Student Loan £22/month (pre tax) Postgraduate Loan £38/month (pre tax) National Insurance & Tax 🤷♀️
Monthly Take Home: £1,760
£750 for the joint account which is used for groceries and my half of rent (£595), council tax (£131), water (£61.04), pet insurance (£13.11), internet (£48.00) and Gas & Electric (£131 - we owe a balance it’s not usually this high).
£30 Gym Membership £30 Phone Bill £17.50 Car Tax £9.83 Home Insurance (not sure why this is coming from my account!)
Savings - around £600 per month usually Credit card - around £100 but I like to top it up with anything leftover in my account. (1.5k remaining and it’s 0%. Used whilst I was studying for my masters)
10am. Wow that was a crazy lay in. Much deserved I think! Up and feed D (the cat!) make myself and T coffee.
12pm. We alternate between playing Tomb Raider and catching up on the news then at midday we tag team the flat and tidy up. I get stuck with taking the bins out which is a slog - yay communal bins. We’re in the middle of buying a house so this won’t be for much longer!
1.30pm. Our friend comes over to have a coffee and give T some money back that he borrowed. At 2.30 I eat leftover spinach and ricotta cannelloni. Friend leaves around 3 and we go back to our vegetive state for a few hours.
8pm. Another friend comes over to use our washing machine and chill, I make vegetarian fajitas at some point. T is a vegetarian and I’m not so we very rarely have meat in the house. Friend leaves around 10.30. We stay up watching Broadchurch (obsessed) I end up waking T from the sofa and heading to bed around 3am.... whoops.
Daily Total: £0.00
9am. Up and at them. Mope around for an hour or so then I put my swimming gear on and head to aqua Zumba for 11.
12.30. Finished, washed and dressed. Head into town to find some work clothes. Manage to find a blouse and pick up some cereal bars from TKMax (£19.37) also get a meal deal from Boots; ham salad sandwich, kinder bueno and a red bull (£3.04) and pay for parking (£1.00).
2.15. Head over to my dads for a catch up and to give him his Father’s Day present (Jelly Babies and a card). Get home around 5.
8pm. More vegetation. Finally get around to making a vegetarian spaghetti bolognese. This weekend has been very uneventful. Spend £10 on the national lottery online games. Cash out £25 so I’m totally not counting this as a spend...
Head to bed around 11pm.
Daily Total: £23.41
6.30am. Up and at them... or not. Snooze my alarm until 7.30!! I’m supposed to go swimming this morning but I really can’t be bothered. My morning involves around 45 minutes of sitting on Instagram or something else with a coffee. Then I shower and do my usual skin routine: Clinique’s take the day off balm, Paula’s Choice Exfoliant and Clinique moisture surge gel. I feel I should explain that T works from home and is never up before 8. Not a single one of my 100 alarms will make him rise from slumber.
Fill up my keep cup with fresh pod coffee, end up leaving around 9 and head to Lidl before going to work. Get 4 packs of biscuits for the office, a chocolate croissant and a goats cheese focaccia (£2.78) do my makeup in the car (Mascara and Powder) then pay to park on the app (£0.62) - we get subsidised parking. I normally walk to work, but I tore my knee ligaments whilst running around 5 weeks ago so I’ve been driving ever since. It’s only 1.5 miles so I miss the walk. I should be allowed to exercise later this week but I’ll see what the physio says. In work by 10am, praise flexitime!!
12pm. I’m out of the office and head to a site for a check. All okay so I head to another site for an event, dropping off a colleague on the way and stopping at the Co-Op for some sugar free red bull... I need to stop with the caffeine!
7.30pm. Finally out of the event - it’s been a long one! I text T who tells me that the mushrooms he wanted to use for the curry were manky so we order Thai when I get home. We don’t normally order takeaway, but it’s been a very busy day. I get beef in black bean and smoked chicken. T gets noodles with satay sauce!
More Broadchurch and in bed around 11.30
Daily Total: £27.40
7am. Here we go again! Feed the cat and make coffee. Chill for a little while then shower and do my normal routine. I’m incredibly low maintenance and only do makeup a few times a week. Fill my keep cup, out the door and in work by 8.20am.
10am. Someone brought in pastry’s for a birthday so I nab two cheese twists. Realise I haven’t yet paid for parking. Pay via app (£1.24) also donate to a colleagues leaving card and present fund (£5)
12.45pm. Walk into town to grab some lunch. Boots meal deal: Duck wrap, smoothie and kinder bueno (£3.04) also grab three lots of batteries from Poundland but charge these to the joint account. (£3). Get the free shuttle bus back to work.
3.30pm. It’s been a slow day and I don’t feel guilty enough not to leave. Head to lidl for our top up shop. I buy; Cola, Milk, Apple Juice, Bread, Cherry Bakewells, 3 kiwis, strawberries, leeks, premade salad, yoghurt, red peppers, mushrooms, 2 bags of share size salt and vinegar crisps, monster munch (pickled onion flavour of course) & a doughnut for T as per his request. Total is £17.65 but I pay for this on the joint card. Check my emails and realise that I’ve got work to do when I get back. Great.
5pm - The work I was going to do I already did last week... reheat Thai leftovers for a snack (there’s really not a lot left just half an appetiser) T won’t be hungry until late. He works from home so our body clocks aren’t always aligned!
8pm - eat some tomato and cheese pasta finally. Follow it up with an ice cream. Spend the evening talking playing fifa and finishing off Broadchurch.
Hit the hay around 10.45. Lay in bed listening to the sound of thunderstorms.
Daily Total: £9.28
7am. Wake up much later than I wanted to but what you gonna do? Meander downstairs to feed the cat and make coffee. Realise we’re nearly out of pods so I can only have one - I leave T a pod because I’m nice like that. (Side note: I got a text message when he woke up berating me for using the last pod. He didn’t see the one I left for him... men!). Skin care, shower and wash my hair. Leave it wet to dry naturally. In work around 8.15. Pay for parking on the app snaffle a cereal bar on the way in.
9.30am. A colleague is leaving and although I’ve only been in this job for 3 months I’m very sad, definitely bonded with her. As a goodbye we go for breakfast as a team. I get a fresh coffee because I’m lagging on the way (£1). Also get a bacon and egg small bap (£1.95).
11am. We head to a site to get some photographs for the cleaners, then onto the pool to check on some works. Also head to the bakery where my colleague gets treats for everyone.
12.30am. Meet an ex colleague over the road for lunch which he graciously pays for. I get quinoa stir fry which is delicious. Head back to the office after an hour and eat half a brownie from colleague.
4pm. I leave the office for the day, head to ASDA to get the rest of our top-up shop. You can’t get everything from lidl unfortunately and T saw an advert for a new cereal. I get 3 bags of coffee pods, 2 boxes of cereal bars, cheese and dairylea dunkers. They don’t even have the cereal T wanted! (£19.05) Scoff a dairylea dunker in the car straight away. Again this goes on the joint card so I don’t add it in. Generally we spend £80 every two weeks and £40 on top up shops in between. Total for the month somewhere between £240 and £300.
5.15pm. I’m home and I feel a little frustrated with the day. Normally I run when I feel like this but that’s not an option due to my knee.
7pm. Eat some cheese and marmite on toast for dinner, T has beans on toast. Healthy I’m sure. End up having sex and I feel instantly relaxed. Spend the evening with T and I head to bed early at 10.15pm. Damn we’re boring now. Praying I’m cleared for exercise tomorrow at physio so I can do something!
Daily Total: £4.19
Thursday 7.50am. Crap up late. I woke up at 6.30 but must’ve dosed off. Fire up computer then make coffee. Do some emails and actions, then shower and run out the door with leftover bolognese, strawberries and a kiwi at 8.45.
9am. Arrive at physio and pay for parking (£2). It goes well and I can go back to exercise tonight as long as I manage my expectations. Give my leftover parking ticket to someone on the way out. Leave to head back to a meeting change out of shorts back at work and pay for parking via the app (£0.62).
12.30pm. Haven’t had a chance for lunch (did grab half a cookie leftover from yesterday) but head to a site visit anyway. Manage to make it back for my 2pm meeting and my boss buys me a coffee whilst I ram another cerealbar in my mouth.
3.45pm. I am out of here... or not. Get a call on my way out saying the tradesperson from earlier left his ladder on site and can’t collect for 45 minutes. Drive to the charity shop to donate some shoes, then back to site. Wait in my car and call to pay our broker who sent an invoice earlier this week (£275 from the joint card)
5pm. Finally home. Crack open a share bag of crisps and go. To. Town. On those bad boys. I spend the next hour ranting to my other half before finally prepping dinner (leek and potato cheesy bake with vegetarian sausages). We eat around 7.15pm.
Daily Total: £2.62
6am. I’m up! Normal routine and am out the door just before 7. It’s payday so I do some moving around of money and resolve to treat myself.
10am. In the office for a fleeting visit. Scoff down some kiwi and strawberries and a cereal bar. Manage to bag a street parking spot for an hour.
12am. My morning has been full of site visits and overseeing contractors. All going to plan but a few fires to put out. Meet two colleagues for lunch at a burger joint. I get a cheeseburger with fries and a Diet Coke £6.90 also pay for parking £2.50
3pm. Finally finished for the day. Today was a chore with lots of mini fires. Head to Sainsbury’s per T’s request. Buy an Xbox controller (£39.99) and alcohol/chocolate (£14.03). Both go on the joint card!
I cancel my gym class and spend the rest of the day lazing round the house. Eat cheese on toast, Doritos, dairylea dunkers and drink ciders that I bought earlier. Fall asleep on the sofa by 10.
Daily Total: £9.40
Week Total: £76.30
Reflections: This seems like an average week. We’re in the middle of buying a house so I’m quite conscious about what I’m spending. I would’ve liked to exercise but that’s off the table, and work was a lot busier than I anticipated. I HATE paying for parking so the fact I have to drive in at the moment is driving me up the wall (ha!). I’m going to attempt to walk into work this coming work and hit the gym too!
