Money Diary: Junior Doctor In Stoke-On-Trent On 62.8k

Welcome to Money Diaries, where we're tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We're asking a cross-section of women how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period – and we're tracking every last penny.
This week, we're with a junior doctor who is training to become an orthopaedic surgeon. She and her husband are buying a house at the moment. It's a new-build and they've paid half the deposit already, so they're trying hard to save up for the second half while keeping some money aside for furniture!
