Well hello to my new follower Green flag. I do not always see my new followers so hello to all my followers and thanks for continuing to follow me!
I did the no spend challenge in January and I stuck to it as much as possible! I said no to the book man no to new clothes - other than those that were ordered and bought in December. I said no to eating out.
It meant that I had about £130 pound left over from my wages - I did have almost £100 come December accrued from underspending the months before but this went on Christmas.
I also got £16.00 cash back from my credit card which will go towards my Ipad. I have about £250 saved including that money now.
I did not count the no spend days but there were at least 15 could have been 20. The rest were low spend. I was tempted - it is so hard. I shall get paid tomorrow. I shall try to make February a low spend month - only I need some work clothes and I am going to a Solicitors lunch the week after next and am going to get a new suit and top. I shall use my Christmas vouchers towards it which I still have left!
Tomorrow evening OH and I are going out for a meal at Prezzo's courtesy of Tesco's clubcard - only got £20 but that will do we shall have to pay for our drinks - soft drinks of course!
In terms of meals I am going to try and meal plan I did this for ages until our board fell off the kitchen wall. I keep asking OH and I am sure he will put it back up soon.
I have been buying a lot of yellow sticker items, I went to Mr S last night and this morning and bought nearly all reduced items. I bought some shampoo and conditioner which were less than half price and next week I shall buy more as I have not bought ay bulk buys this month in order to stick to my no spends but I do need them to save me money throughout the year.
Not been well this week, feeling a bit better today. My sister came over with her OH and little ones, they bought me some flowers to cheer me up and bought some cakes.
Have a good week y'all!
