Update

October 1st, 2015 at 06:57 am

It's been a few weeks since my last update. I'll try and remember everything I wanted to write about.

We've just been plodding along here.

I've been making more of an effort to track spending, especially miscellaneous spending. So far this pay, almost two weeks in, miscellaneous spending has included a bake sale at SG's nursery to raise money for charity, a sponsored walk to raise money for her nursery, a magazine for me and a few impulse purchases at the checkout.

I seem to be blowing my way through the food budget. I have been doing my best to meal plan again recently and use things up. Maybe it's time to increase the budget. I'll admit though I have noticed that I have been spending more on food in an effort to gain weight and return to my former self.

I started Christmas shopping. I used 24GBP worth of catalogue rewards to get the kids something, so it was essentially free.

Speaking of the catalogue, the minimum payment is now at double digits. I can't remember the last time it was this low. I will enjoy it while it lasts since my horrendous BNPL item will be added on in December, and that will add 44.xx to my minimum payment.

I don't know my snowflakes total for the month. However, I did finally get all of the money transfered to debt and savings for the month. I am stil getting bored of doing surveys, although I did do one yesterday which shoudl reap rewards soon.

I've saved the best news till last: I finally hit 300 in the emergency fund!

    Yes, if you need more food to gain weight for your health that is money well spent.

    Congratulations on getting to 300 in your EF!! I'm so excited for you.

    I agree with CCF - if you are needing to gain weight for your health, then increasing the food budget is well worth it!
