I started spending September’s living allowance the day we got paid in August. Albeit two trips to the office, purchasing lots of food, and lots of transport for Umhlanga, I still came in under budget. I still ran out of money, though, because I upgraded my internet and had to pay in advance for the last two months of the contract. My internet upgrade runs on the same network as before because the company I switched to is sharing cell phone towers, but I have much more internet for more money. The automatic bill pay has not worked, but otherwise, the switch has been worth it.
