This & That

September 22nd, 2016 at 11:36 pm

Just a little update.

Nationwide sent me a letter about increasing my credit limit. I'm ignoring it; I don't want an increase.

I found husband's PIN in my budgeting notebook, so no need to get in touch with the bank.

I paid the last of my Christmas high street vouchers this pay. It's only half of what we saved last year. We should get them soon.

Bought a new winter jacket for J and some clothes, SG got clothes. Her jacket needs replaced next but J didn't have a warm enough jacket for winter.

I also bought a collection of Peter Rabbit books from Amazon. They were 29.99,originally over 100. When ordering I accidentally signed up for Amazon Prime so I'll have to remember to cancel.

Bought husband a book for his birthday. 12.91.

I planned meals for next week. I've got a Tesco order coming on Wednesday.

I applied for Warm Home Discount yesterday. I heard about it through Martin Lewis. I'll see if we qualify, it's first come, first served. If we do that's 140 towards our electricity.

I think that's all for now.

    Money towards electricity would be very helpful.

    Non-bank credit cards seem to have ridiculous interest rates. Macy's for example charges me nearly 25%. Crazy!

    A minor lapse in paying a bill could be a costly mistake. I'd rather stick with major credit cards, which, while still featuring high rates, aren't approaching ursury rates like most retailers.

    Hope you get the discount, that's a good idea. Just think of the savings that you can then add to your EF!

    Can you set reminders on your phone with alerts? That's what I do when I know I need to cancel something by a certain date. (I usually set the first reminder a week out, and then repeat daily ... to help ensure it actually happens!)

    Is chilly weather on its way soon?
    Oh, I read some of Martin Lewis' website sometimes. God stuff. Wink
