Sales = overtime

May 27th, 2010 at 12:30 pm

I worked an extra shift today. The sales at work have been really good so there was money to spend. I've also got a few shifts over the next couple of weeks too.

Hubby worked extra today too.

Got a postcard today

May 20th, 2010 at 02:12 pm

It was from my catalogue. I haven't ordered from them in months. They're offering me 15 off my next order of 50 or more. The catalogue bill came at the same time. My minimum monthly payment is the lowest it's been since before I ordered at Christmas last year, I'm not adding to it now.

The sun was shining today

I hope it's nice on Thursday. It was a lovely day outside and I was stuck at work for nine hours. I spoke to my manager and it doesn't look like I'll get overtime this week, so I'm hoping that it will be nice on Thursday.

Never spent anything today.

Still haven't got credit card bill yet but I'm expecting it soon.

back to work tomorrow

May 15th, 2010 at 09:24 pm

I'm back at work tomorrow morning. I've had a good few days off. We went to our friend's for dinner last night, ended up just getting a takeaway.

Hubby got some overtime today, he worked five extra hours. As long as one of us is getting some extra money i don't mind.

Bought my little cousin's birthday present today. Spent 9.22 on her (including card and wrapping paper) I bought her a nice summery dress. I'm going to post it on Monday since I'm not brave enough to drive to visit them yet.

Unplanned spending

May 10th, 2010 at 06:20 pm

Hubby phoned when I finished work. He wanted me to pick up a few things - something for us for dinner tomorrow, beer for him and drink for me for Friday and coleslaw to go with the salad we're having tonight. 17 later and I was done. I could kick myself, I really wanted to keep the money for important things. I guess I can't do anything now, just thought I would have a moan about it.

Also, paid the woman that I work with the sponsor money that I owed her.

The only good thing about today was that I never spent a penny on my breaks. I took my own breakfast and lunch like I had planned so tomorrow will be the same.

Spending today

May 9th, 2010 at 06:16 pm

I spent 7.70 in total today. I put 2 on my card at work and then spent 5.70 after work in Asda. I bought a tub to put cereal in to take to work, cereal bars for work, two packs of snack pack biscuits (4 in each pack) which I will take to work. I heard today that they're raising the prices in the colleague canteen so I'm going to take my own breakfast from now on (usually I buy from the canteen). I always take my own lunch. I also bought a new tub of cream since the one I'm using now is almost done.

Returned the top today, exchanged it for a pair of trousers. The cashier gave me 1 back so that was good.

Seen a few tops I could get my cousin for her birthday so will probably pick them up soon.

I sponsored a woman I work with 5 for the Race For Life. I'll need to give that to her tomorrow.

Breakfast, coffee and clothes!

May 8th, 2010 at 01:31 pm

That basically sums up my day so far.

Bought me and hubby breakfast and 2 large coffees = 9.54

Went to a clearance shop, Hubby found a pair of shorts for me for 2 so picked them up, I found a top. Top is too big so going to take it back and exchange it for something else. 10 spent

Hubby bought me my wine and chocolates for tonight while he's out. I'm going to enjoy them.

Hope everyone has a good day!

I have finally paid back MIL, which means another goal for this year has been met. I've forgotten how to edit it though, so my list of goals hasn't been updated yet.

I paid two bills online before 7 this morning - then I went back to sleep. I really only woke up to check my bank balance.

Hubby and I haven't done much today, been lazing about. He has a night out tomorrow, I'll be home probably watching a dvd with a glass of wine.

So what's coming up this month?

1) Meal at friend's house
2) My cousin's birthday
3) Cinema with my mum to see Sex and the City 2

I think that's all, hopefully I won't be spending too much this month (well I'm going to limit my spending)

Have a good day!

4 hours

May 6th, 2010 at 03:18 pm

That was how much overtime I got today. Hubby worked 4 hours extra too. I'm going to try and do as much as possible this month. It was a long four hours, there wasn't much to do. I'm just glad I managed to get some overtime, I guess that's all that's important.

I'm off for two days now, I won't be doing much though, just taking it easy.

I'm going to keep track of my spending this month. Well for four weeks until my next payday, just to see how I'm doing.

It's the first of May!

I'm glad May is here. I know that one of my goals will be accomplished (paying back MIL). I will be clear of that debt when I get paid next week.

Hubby and I went on a long walk today with my mum and her dog. It was nice. I'm tired now, could do with having dinner soon (it's 5pm here)

Filled up petrol, well it's almost a full tank. Wrote down my current mileage so I can keep track of how many miles I get out of it. I have no idea just now. All I know is that it was nearly three weeks ago that it was full.

Here's hoping May will be a good month!
