Bad month

March 24th, 2016 at 08:07 am

It's been a tough month. I've completely blown my very low budget of 80gbp for food shopping, withdrew some cash from savings and borrowed some money from my mum. Ugh.

I don't know how on earth I'll reach any of my goals if we keep on like this.

I redeemed 3.00 rewards from my survey today and I'm almost at enough Swagbucks for 5.00 PayPal. When these come through I'll put them towards Jason's cot that km paying off so I don't miss the deadline (29/4)and it gets added to my catalogue bill. I was debating whether to put it towards my credit card, bank of Scotland, but this is more important right now,

I'm thinking from June onwards I'll put any snowflakes towards Christmas shopping.

I'm going to make a note of how much I owe to savings. I really don't know if I'll get it paid back this year. I hate owing myself money. I worked hard to save it.

I'm on the lookout for a new job, work is getting me down.

Hubby has been invited out by his friends. We really can't afford it but I want him to go because it's been over a year since he's seen them.

    It's very hard. Very lonely, and very isolating to be dealing with financial problems like this. We have all been here, and the work and sacrifice is difficult, but worth it. Hugs to you.

    Also, find ways to be with friends, that don't cost as much. Good friends can really be a life raft when you feel like you're drowning.

    Chin up, Buttercup! (As my Grandma always used to say). We're managing financially, I think, until I get the mail and there are MORE medical bills. And since we've started dealing with this 5+ weeks ago, my parents have brought us milk and toilet paper when I haven't had the time or energy to go the bank for money. And my inlaws have helped out with Walmart grocery runs. We're just now facing all the things that have broken or need repair at home. The list just keeps getting longer with little to no progress. *Sigh* But we'll both emerge on the other side, right? Take heart and do the best you can. Smile

    All you can do is more forward. More income, less spending, finding snowflakes...all part of the puzzle to getting on a good financial footing.

    Hang in there. We all have times when things get to us and we spend more than we anticipated. Just keep trying to save when you can.
