    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!!
    Happy Holidays and acc like this.

    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!!

    This isn't money saving unless you already buy any of these mags in the shop.

    You can get 5 issues of some mags for £5.

    I got the Wildlife mag last time it was on offer,cancelled the dd and started the sub up again with this offer.2 weeks into the 4th one you must cancel the dd so you don't get charged for any more.

    There are a variety of mags.I get a knitting one,Sky at night and Wildlife all for £1 a month each.

    The only one not £5 is the wedding one.But thats still a good buy.

    Can't put the link but if you google buy subscriptions you will find the offer.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    "I don’t think there’s any excuse for women not to stay in shape. We just need to stop gorging, put on our trainers, and use some self-control. No one else is going to do it for us." Linda Barker

    “Eating crappy food isn't a reward -- it's a punishment.” ― Drew Carey

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
    Loving life,Loving my body.

    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.
