Long story short:
I lost my job on august 30th. Where I live there is a high demand for high qualifications+experience and low demand of no/low qualification jobs. So unfortunately my job chances are slim to none. With the way things going how they are and my debt, I was expecting to be homeless by December 20th.
I spent September through to the end of October working hard to make money and present myself with a second chance. In this time I have managed to turn my monthly income to over 10k.
Most people would say "then why do you need help, thats loads!" but I have a bad spending habit due to depression. I have 13k debt, don't own a house (obviously) or a car(only on my L's, but I'm 24).
I need advice on what I should do. What steps should I take to make the most of my money and in turn kick my spending habit?
One thing I don't need to be told is "don't go on OzBargain", I am actually fine with OzBargain, I don't buy anything and everything when I'm on here. But I do spend all day visiting online shops for deals and look at more expensive items than I need (e.g. a $6000 Mac Book Pro…and I prefer Windows…)
I'm only young so really I guess what I'm after is some older/more experienced person to give me advice.
This income isn't permanent as its requiring complete attention from me for 14-16 hours a day. I will probably keep it up for another 4-5 months and try to get a hands on job in real life after the time comes. (I prefer to physically be up and doing something for my job)
My monthly costs are:
Debt payment: $470
