    August Money Challenge

    Hi all, well another month is upon us, it will soon be Christmas, we need to up the aunty on this now me thinks. Lets get back to basics & remind ourselves of the simple savings we can make. Yikes I've got my 'mum' head on, lol

    Okie dokies, it's worth remembering if you've got a credit card with a balance, there are plenty of 0% on transfer deals going on, and if you've got credit card purchases to make there are also some good 0% on purchases deals, I did this earlier this year with the flights to Cambodia instead of using my holiday savings pot I bought the flights on 0% purchases & have set up a direct debit to pay off the balance by the end the intro period ends.

    I've been to Morrisons tonight & apparently they have the '15 Summer Bonus' offer on, it's week 2 now though, basically you collect a bonus coupon each time you spend 40+ in store until 24th August, then bring 4 coupons each from a different week & save 15 off your shop & you don't need to spend 40, happy days!!!

    Happy saving everyone

    After last year`s fiasco, I`ve got Xmas already sorted.
    Back in January I set up a savings account for it.
    Maybe even have some cash left over.

    We`ve got a holiday the first week of September.Hubby`s birthday in November.
    Two more holidays booked for next year.
    Really need to get sorted!!

    Had a great surprise this morning.

    We pay for electricity by direct debit with EDF.
    Had to double check it.

    As we`re low users, from next month our monthly payment has been reduced to 1!!
    At first I thought it was a reduction of 1. But no!
    The full payment is 1!!
    Happy days!!

    I think food is so expensive, isn't there a cheap family foods website, I'm sure somebody once posted something like that on here.

    OH remembered to buy me The Sun so that's a saving, it will go in the holiday tin though for our Trans Siberian trip, whenever that may be, lol.

    Was it approved foods?

    What was the voucher for?

    I want to go back to the days when we had corner shops and just bought what was needed instead of what we might want!

    See we all love our food and different stuff which makes it more expensive I think.

    Now I've got the taste for holidays I'm thinking the money I could save could be spent on holidays lol
