Firstly apologies if this has been raised before.
Let’s say I do a lot of required traveling, and want to treat my expenditure on petrol over the month as committed. Also I don’t go to the same petrol station each time I fill up.
How am I best managing that? Instinctively I feel like I want to set up a weekly subscription for any merchant in transport where the spend is about the same as my weekly costs. So the committed spending can be adjusted when I fill up.
If I understand correctly subscriptions are only based on transactions though?
I know I could not do committed spending and do a budget instead but I love not having to do the mental juggling to see how much money is mine.
The same principal also applies to my weekly shop where I do an online order from Tesco, Morrisons or Sainsbury’s depending on which delivery slots are available. Be nice to commit to £50 week on groceries, regardless of merchant.
Hope that makes sense, any ideas on the best way to handle these kinds of things?
