Confidence looks like different things to different people. For many, it’s what you need when tackling a tough issue with your boss or wearing a slightly more daring outfit than usual. Money confidence can be a more complex beast altogether.

What is money confidence? Is it about having faith in your ability to spend wisely? Is it the guts it takes to face down the debt problems you’ve been meaning to deal with? Is it the joy of building a realistic budget and knowing that by sticking to it, you can become a money-saving superstar?

If you regularly follow our Twitter account, you’ll know that we often chat to a frugal fashionista called Penny Golightly, and you may have seen us tweet about #Tennerweek, the challenge Penny takes every month to live for a week with just £10 to spend. This is meant to cover the food, drink, entertainment, treats and other odd bits of spending for one adult.

I’d been meaning to take the #Tennerweek challenge for quite some time, and finally decided that August would be my month to do it. I read somewhere that summer is meant to be the cheapest of all the seasons, so hopefully the challenge would be a breeze…or so I thought!
