Uber Frugal Wrap Up

January 31st, 2018 at 03:11 am

Last year's UFMC was way more successful... This year's just highlighted how much money is going towards debt. Despite watching spending, I'm still cutting it pretty close. Payday is on Friday.

This month highlighted that we pay too much on our mobile phone bills - mine will be cancelled in a couple of weeks, but I'm still paying for a sim card for a tablet that broke months ago (but the contract isn't up yet, and we didn't take out insurance!). It's in hubby's name so I need him to check when it's up so we can cancel.

I know I complained about the extra debt repayments, but I know it's worth it to have it gone.

I'm going to keep up using cash only for shopping. I really like doing this. I think I'm more accountable that way.

All in all, I could've done better.

    I think if the month helped you determine your mobile phone bills are high and there is an alternative that is a success! Keep up the great work, that debt it going to be gone and you will be better for it.

    Don't totally discount yourself...you have made progress! Celebrate that and keep plugging along on the other challenges.

    I'm in the same boat, Sarah. Last year's UFM for us was necessitated by DH being out of work so I think I held the line more. I'm going to watch it into February too. But as rob and CCF say, progress is progress.
