It's snowing!!

March 30th, 2010 at 08:04 pm

It's meant to be spring and it's snowing! I really shouldn't be surprised. If it keeps up I'm not taking the car to work tomorrow, I'll either get the bus or walk. I'm hoping it won't land, it's been raining a lot over the past few days.

Next month

Next month is going to be busy. It's my friend's birthday and my mum's. Luckily I already have part of my mum's present in. We're going out for a meal for both of these birthdays. I'm going to take the car to both so that should save us some money. My cousin is also due her baby. I already have a card in from us so just need to get a present.

By May I will have paid MIL the money i owe her, thankfully. I hate owing money. That money can then go towards my credit card which needs cleared and savings.

Going to apply for tax credits for me and hubby next month. This should help Hubby pay back his debt and me save. I don't know how much we will get but anything will help.

Today has been a No Spend Day Smile

Last month I tracked all of my outgoings. I haven't managed to do the same this month...

So how's March so far? I get paid every four weeks so I've got two weeks till payday. I'm just waiting for my first car payment to come out.

I put some money into savings this month (20) However I haven't put anything to my Christmas savings this month - it's 15 a month. I really should have just put that money towards Christmas but I wanted to get a start on my emergency fund.

I'm going to cancel a web browsing pack that I have on my phone, I never use it so it's a waste of money.

First month

March 15th, 2010 at 07:07 pm

This will be my first month with my car payment and car insurance coming out. I keep on checking my bank balance, I'm a bit worried actually. I worked extra last week but won't get the money till next month's pay.

Savings goal

I've been thinking about my savings, I was planning on trying to save three months salary. However, I'm going to start with a smaller goal of 500 pounds. I've added a ticker to my sidebar to track my progress.
