Minimal Spending: Day 1

October 4th, 2013 at 02:50 pm

I spoke to hubby last night, basically said to him that we need to spend as little as possible for the next six weeks. He wondered why six weeks? Because that's how long it is until the next pay that we will have no sick days and possibly extra hours.

SG's got a cold and there's no tissues in the house. I met my mum for a coffee then went to buy some tissues and some olbas. I also needed to get an engagement card (£1.50 was the cheapest), some more milk (£1.99 for 6 pints, we're going through a lot) and a box of teabags (27p). Well my mum ended up paying for it - she said just put it with my stuff. She also bought our coffee too.

For those of you wondering how we're going through so much milk when I just bought four pints yesterday - we had a cheap dinner last night: porridge.

In other news, while catching up with my mum I persuaded her that she has to pay herself first. So, every two weeks, I'm transferring a little to her savings (I've got a laptop, she hasn't) Well I made sure before I left to make absolutely sure that it was ok for me to do this, she said it is. Well, her savings account is now ten pounds better off. Wish I could say the same for mine.

So day one is a NSD - but only thanks to my mum. I'm back to work in a few days so need to plan what I'll take for breakfast and lunch.

    It is nice to be treated by our parents once in awhile. And congrats on convincing your mother to begin saving!!

    My mom and dad pop by regularly with treats from Traders Joes. They rotate between the favorites of the kids. Lovely mum!
