Hello!! So it’s been a hot minute since I last wrote on here – I had a bad summer of saving, but looking back I don’t regret it. I made so many genuinely amazing memories and had the best time. BUT….since then I got back to being serious about hacking away at this debt. Let me update you! In June I was left with £16k … Continue reading Net Worth Update – 4 months to go!
So I’m again dreading writing a post but the whole reason I started this blog was to keep myself accountable to my goals. Right now here is where I stand: It hurts to look!! Yeah, pretty much there’s no excuse. Went on holiday, shopped a ton for that holiday, went to a concert and bought stadium drinks. Stupid, but fun. So instead of beating myself … Continue reading Net worth update! I’ve been bad 😦 June 2018
Another quick update on my net worth. Like I said, things aren’t stellar financially right now but I’m in the process of turning that around. I got a little trigger happy when I allowed myself to buy new summer clothes since it had been about 3 years (living in England makes it seem silly since they’re bagged up for about 9 months of the year). … Continue reading Monthly budget results – April 2018
HELLO MONEYBABES!! Firstly let me apologise a million times for being away for so long – I had no intention of being away for this amount of time, but I got put on a project that sent me to Abu Dhabi for 6 weeks and in that time I had a super ~traumatic~ experience that threw me WAYYYY off and of course I will post about it … Continue reading Monthly budget results – Feb and Mar 2018
Ah Valentine’s Day, the most pointless holiday there is. Don’t waste your time booking a restaurant to sit around a bunch of other couples who feel forced to be there. It’s a waste of money. And it takes so much effort. My boyfriend and I luckily feel the exact same way about this holiday. I’d rather spend my evening with my dog and him doing … Continue reading 3 budget friendly Valentines Day ideas
Hello! It was a LONG January. I got paid Dec 21st for January, which I think the company tries to do to help with Christmas expenses, but it ends up making the last 3 weeks of January incredibly painful for everyone. Overall it was an okay month for spending given that it started with my boyfriend’s birthday and included a little bit of late-onset shopping … Continue reading Monthly budget results – January 2018
(I know I’m a little late to the party on this one!) I’ve been thinking for a few weeks about the goals I want to make for this year. I’ve read a few other posts which have talked about this (or specifically not talked about this), and like I’ve mentioned before I need goals to encourage myself to work harder. I want to make overall … Continue reading My goals for 2018 and Q1-18
I’m not actually sure anyone is still interested in seeing this (seeing as it’s already January 4th and it’s not super exciting), so I’m going to make it short and sweet. Christmas in Rome did a number on me, but luckily my very generous parents also gifted me close to $500, which is shown in my net worth numbers below. DECEMBER BUDGET RESULTS So it … Continue reading Monthly Budget Results – December 2017
WEEEEEE It already feels like Christmas…but once a few withdrawals from my matched betting accounts go through hit my account, I am wiping out my smaller loan completely, and then I can partyyyy (snakejuice style). I have never been so excited to pay down debt – seriously I cannot WAIT for these to go through. THE DETAILS The balance is £1375 and it is the … Continue reading Paying off my first loan in four months!
November was a really great month for me financially, and I think I owe that to my No Spend November challenge. At times, it was so so difficult to restrain myself, but it also opened my eyes to how often I ‘treat’ myself to a coffee or a treat because I’ve had a bad day or stressful minute. (A quick apology for being so late … Continue reading Monthly Budget Results – November 2017
