I got a bonus from work:144. I transferred 140 to savings to cover the hotel in April, so that's 290 saved now. I left the 4 in my account. I'm pretty sure that last year I had to use my bonus for daily expenses, so it's nice to use it for something different for a change.

I've been handwashing clothes. I'm hoping hubby can fix the machine though. He looked at it yesterday, tried it but it stopped with two minutes left in the cycle. Then he mentioned something about a ball... I'm hoping it's fixable anyway. He's checking again later.

I'm dropping off a couple of bags of donations soon. It's so nice to get rid of stuff. I've been doing my best to find a bag a day, which Creditcardfree talks about in her other blog. We have so much stuff.

    Great news on the bonus and your plans for. You have come a long way in the past year. So proud of your decluttering work! A small bag each day or even every other doesn't take long as I have found.

    Well done Sarah. Wonderful to be adding sums to cost for trip, yet to come. I too am following progress on CCF's newest declutter project. We're still traveling but I've given thought to how little we need unless laundry service messes us up [as they have today].

    Hope your hubby can fix your machine.

    I'd like to get rid of more stuff to, as i am bursting at the scenes with my mother's stuff after she passed, but I don't want to regret getting rid of certain stuff, so i wait and hope Ii'll get a signal of some sort that certain things are ready to let go of.
