Hi I’m Selena

And I like to save. Or at least try to! I’m an ex-shopaholic on my journey to a debt free life.

Current debt stands at £15k – eeek.

My plan is to become accountable for my spending and debt repayments by sharing it with you guys. I hope you don’t mind!

I currently reside in Fitzrovia, London. Not the cheapest place to live. My friend rents me a box room and that costs me a damn fortune. So my goal is to move out of Fitz and to somewhere cheaper.

Here’s my problem. I like to live WELL. I like nice things, glamour, and what not. I like to party, date, eat out. You know the deal. I need to learn to live a glamorous life on a budget. Quick.

Today I’ve decided I’ll be doing the following:

  • Cut up my credit cards – stat
  • Assess my needs versus my wants
  • Look for a new place to live that’s cheaper and bigger
  • Cancel a load of my needless subscriptions
  • Get a better-paid job
  • Learn how to cook
  • Find a boyfriend (ok – this isn’t a money thing!)

I hope you’ll follow my journey. I really want to change my life. And without you dear reader, who will make me accountable? Certainly not my social circle!

Stay tuned for further updates on how Selena Saves!
