This & That

May 23rd, 2016 at 07:56 am

Last night I noticed on Facebook that my cousin was bragging about how much she had saved on her shopping. She uses coupons and shopping apps, it looks as though she spends a lot of time printing off coupons. It inspired me to install new apps. Any money I make from them will go towards debt. Who knows how long it will take though.

I'm considering transferring my ISA to get a better interest rate.

I want to aim to get two items that hubby got from the catalogue last month - before the loan, without telling me - paid off by December. Think they're about 240. Works out at about 30/month. I think it's manageable.

I need to start putting more money aside for Christmas. Right now we're only saving ten pounds each pay.

It's payday on Friday.

J turns two next month. I bought him a new waistcoat to wear from a friend's small business, I just need to get a shirt and trousers for him. Other than that, he will be getting a small gift and I'll bake a cake.

    What is ISA?

    Savings from apps can be a good deal IF you need the item. I've found they do sometimes promote more buying, so just keep a careful eye! Smile

    Does your husband still have the ability to use his catalogues? Is there a way you could convince him to cancel his subscription or whatever it is? That note gave me a cold chill, because if he keeps using them, there's no way you'll get out of debt, no matter how much of your own debt you get paid off.

    You do have to be careful with the apps - I sometimes find myself buying more than I need just to get the savings ...Even though I try not to.

    CCF, an Isa is an individual savings account. You can contribute 15,240 per tax year. It's tax free.

    CJ he is still able to use them but he knows I've taken over paying them to get rid of debt so he can't.
