how i'll save money at work

January 31st, 2006 at 03:42 pm

I'm doing overtime this week so i've decided that I will save money by:

walking to work
taking my own lunch

I haven't spent anything today so I'm hoping to do the same on my next day off, which is Friday.

my other plans have been abandoned

When I started this blog, one of my aims was to save money for when I move in with my boyfriend. However, since we're going on holiday this year it looks as though we're going to have to concentrate on that instead. I'm a bit disappointed because I was hoping to have at least some money saved.

I did some overtime today so when I get paid next month I will put that towards my holiday. I just want to get it paid as soon as possible.

Our holiday's booked

I'm so pleased. My boyfriend phoned me last night and told me that we are going to the Dominician Republic, it's been booked. The only problem is that I will have to save up enough money to go there. It will all be worth it in the end, I'll just really need to budget until we go. I have most of the summer so it shouldn't be too bad.

My last exam was today, so no more until May.

spent more than i saved today

I went shopping today and I still managed to spend a lot, even though I had a list with me. I bought some stuff to help my mum out so I don't feel too bad.

Oh well my birthday's soon so that should cheer me up Smile After that I will be more focused on saving.

still trying

Well I was going to save some money today but I had to help my mum out. I also have two driving lessons this week that I have to pay for then there's money that I will need for bus fare during the week. The only good thing is that I have put my name down for extra hours at work so that should help.

not going according to plan

Well as it turns out saving isn't as easy as I thought it would be. It seems as though I'll need to do overtime at work if I actually want to save anything. If I do enough overtime this month I should be able to save something next month...well hopefully I will be able to.

money i'll need for this week

Here is what I plan to spend this week:

bus fare: 4.00 + 1.60
driving: 18.00
day ticket: 2.30

Total: 25.90

Hopefully I will not spend any more money than this.

My saving is going okay as long as i budget. My boyfriend, however, does not have enough money to put away this month. I wonder if I can help him so he can?

first day

Well I have come up with my financial resolutions for 2006. They are:

1. Save to move in with my boyfriend
2. Put money in a savings account
3. Save for a holiday

I will try and update this journal regularly so I can keep track of my spending.
