Hi start of a new week, I doubt I would ever do this as in the image, but a new week spells new week to have fun.
Now Henry my son has more energy now and is more aware, saying more words and mimicing more, he wants to be out and exploring. So before the nights and mornings start to get dark later in the morning and early in the evening, I want to make the most of each week.
It is also pay day so before I pay anything out I will need to sort out my finances. If you have read my recent blogs, you would have read that I am trying to be the super saver again. I have managed to save quite a bit. I have had those urges to splurge but have had the willpower to hold back.
I think to myself when I get the urge is, how will I feel if I buy this item?
Happy or regretful?
Then I picture my savings and how that will look in my bank balances and budget. It has made me really be more caring and controlled with my money.
Music I have been listening to is Starship, We Built This City, Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now and Bette Midler, The Wind Beneath My Wings. They are such fill good songs, and I love summer songs like Smooth Operator and Wishing on A Star. They always make me think about the years my family and I when I was a kid would go to Menorca with other families and friends, who we knew and saw regularly. They were such fabulous holidays, that I used always get the holiday blues when it came to going back home.
My holiday essentials are:
Be good to hear of what your holiday essentials are and what you always have to take with you when you go on holiday.
It is that time of year where most people will be going on a holiday of some sort. I love that buzz you get the week before, the night before and in the morning when you are off to the airport.
So to all those off on their holidays or who are already begun their holiday. Have a great one and safe journey there and back.
Many thanks for reading,
Hello and welcome to another blog. Posting on my Monday Check-in page which I haven't done for a few weeks. If you have been following my blogs you would have seen that I am now be very tight with my money as I am trying to be the supersaver I once was. I think I am finding her because by now my account would be almost down to zero, which it isn't and I have money still to spare.
This spent this week £40.12, but this was due to the items I bought online. Some items are a better price when bought online than when you buy them from the high street. I do have a separate budget to what I spend weekly to what I pay online but even when I was purchasing items from Amazon, I was being very cautious as to what I bought and how much. If I go by just my weekly budget I actually only spent £16.80, which is good and feels great.
There have been a lot of things I was already doing to save money, but by my splurging on items I didn't need, was counteracting against what I was saving.
Ways I have already been doing to save money:
Sorry that I have sent this twice, but first time it didn't include the extra bits I had added. Talking about going Digital when planning and doing To Do lists. I wrote a blog on this a few weeks ago. I did this for about a week, and reverted back to writing it all down. I find that, writing it on paper is the preferred method for me, I am a bit old fashioned in that way. I have to have it written for it to go into my head.
To those who like to keep it all stored on your phone, then there are some great APPs to use, but I would always recommend a back up. Have it written somewhere or kept on your computer or tablet aswell as your phone, just in case you lose your phone or your phone decides to brake.
Anyway going to end blog here. Have a good week ahead and I will blog again on Friday.
Many thanks for reading,
