First of all, well done to Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow for their amazing Bronze medal. I thought they were all amazing. You can see how committed and work they have to put in. They make it look so easy.
I am loving the Olympics, great chance to see so many sports in one set of games. It is a great event for other sportspersons to get recognition. I do think they are often forgotten about due to other sports taking over, such as football and rugby.
After a busy weekend I did manage to catch up on some other TV yesterday and watching Long Lost Family on ITV 1 does make me put my own life in perspective. It makes you realise how lucky you are, when there are people out there who have never met their biological parents, or whom have had to give up their child for adoption because of bringing shame to families having children out of wedlock as it was often seen years and years ago, and then wanting to find their child years later.
I do think we do live in a different society now.
Today I finally got to do an inventory list of all the food we have in our fridge, freezer and cupboards, as I was fed up of wasting food, and finally wanted to put an end to it. I am going to make sure every thing is used up. It did open my eyes to how much we waste and it is money at the end of the day.
Being more careful with my money has made a massive difference. Organising my bank accounts so I have one for everyday spending, bills and savings has been a massive change and best thing I have done. I am now going to do the same with buying items on the high street and groceries to buying items online.
Doing this helps to see where my money is going and to be more careful with what I buy and spend. Sometimes we can so easily press the buy button and go into denial of if I can't see my bank balance then I don't have to think about it, but it will still be there. I have made a rule that if I do want something then I see if I can buy it in store first and check the price and #Ifitworksout to be more #costeffective including delivery charge to buy online or if I am not able to find the item in any local store.
I have also been working on this months budget, which has also helped massively in looking at my finances and I will find some really good online tools to share on my blog posts if you are also needing some help with money, and will help get you started.
Have a good week.
Many thanks for reading,
