    September Money Challenge

    I know there`s a few days left in August but I thought I`d set up a September money challenge!!

    I`m on holiday the first week of the month but have already saved my spending money and don`t intend to dip into the housekeeping!

    On my return I intend to save with a vengance.

    Everyone`s welcome to join!!

    I'm in again!!!

    I'm also already thinking about September, we go away end of Sept & I've bought everything we need for then.

    I'm going to be really frugal in Sept and only buy Christmas stuff, I've no birthdays and no other spends other than bills/food/petrol to pay for.

    You said the 'C' word!

    Seriously, it's good to plan ahead if you can.Having said that, I set up a savings plan in January to ease the pain! I'm still hoping not to use the whole amount so that the remainder can go in the holiday fund.

    Well, I`m on hols on Monday and already in holiday mode.
    Hope I don`t undo my hard work foodwise!!

    Got my spending money all sorted in advance so don`t need to dip into my wages that went into the bank today.
    That should help towards saving in September!!

    This month I am going back to only buying what I need for the week.Not stocking up on 'bargains'.

    I have 500 to pay for food and any bills that may pop through the door.I don't think I have any water,gas or electric this month I think they are all next month.

    Don't need to buy meat or fish as I have enough for about 3/4 weeks before I bulk order again.I only really got to buy lunch food,fruit which I'm cutting back on and veg for dinners.

    I know I will need to go and get lettuce on Wednesday and maybe some more veg but I will only be taking enough money to cover it.

    I'm not falling for any more supermarket tricks to get me to part with my money.
