economy drive DAY7

Another, bar petrol, spend free day, lunch at my mothers and dinner at the inlaws helped a great deal and a day of moaning, laughing, chatting and gossiping was had without the need to spend money.

We have failed in our £20 a week challenge but succeeded in highlighting where our money goes and more importantly why it goes. I don’t feel that it was a total failure we spent in total about £55 for a week, two adults and a child a child friday to sunday. Over budget but still half what we normally spend and without reverting to boiling our shoes or eating the kittens.

What I’ve realized is that if I leave the house I spend money, perhaps not a lot but money changes hands for something, travel, drink, snacks and mostly this is unnecessary and could be avoided with a little more planning.

Will I be carrying on? yes, will I blog about it? probably not, it would get very tedious reading someones shopping lists every day.
