AN APOLOGETIC WARNING: There may be a flurry of emails coming through. My 50by50 year is almost up and I need to get blogging!
Well, I’m almost there. I have resisted the urge to burn the plastic this month (what a month to choose!) My credit card company has phoned me twice in a panic to check that I’m still alive but there is not a smidgen of red to be found in my bank statement and for once I have money left over at the end of the month.
I did all my online shopping in November so Christmas shopping was a breeze this year. So what was the hardest thing about this task? It was definitely handing over £50+ cash every ten days or so for petrol. I can’t eat it, wear it or enjoy it so what a waste of my hard earned money. Ah, perhaps now’s the time to dust off my bike and make use of my new found cycling skills…
NB: This was a very useful task and one I’ll try to continue. It has certainly made me think twice about whether or not I need that ‘must have’ pair of shoes/dress/top… It’s always harder to hand over hard earned cash than a piece of plastic. Everyone should try it for at least a month. You’ll be surprised at how much money you save.
