3 Months and Still At It.

Tomorrow it is 3 months since I made my first blog entry. It has been such fun, and I am really enjoying it. Blogging focuses the frugal mind.

In that time I have paid off £752.00 off my £1990 debt, learnt new skills and discovered a whole new world.

I thought then today would be a good time to give you an update on past posts.

Back in February, I set myself the challenge of making all my own bread until the end of March.
I achieved it, and made everything from scratch, bar a packet of pitta pockets reduced in Tesco to 5p. I am really pleased with my new skill and for the time being am planning to continue. I am also hoping to add some more breads to my current limited repertoire.

You also may remember back in January I had a go at growing my own mushrooms from a free kit I got off Freecycle. I had been warned the kit was over 12m old, and I know spores have a certain shelf life. So no, no mushrooms, just some mould. :o(

In January, I also discussed the rainy day jar I have here I am still putting change into it every week, but not as much as usual as I am still trying to stop unnecessary trips to the cashpoint. So change gets used up. I am still hoping though for £100 by Christmas.

Life is going pretty well here at W Towers, but there is no doubt still a long way to go to be debt free by the end of 2012.

Plus this month has been expensive and I also need to start rebuilding my savings.

Seems like a 3 month plan is hatched. Save £600 by July.

Thank you everyone for all your support, I cannot tell you how much comments mean. I squeal when I get a new one from someone near by or half way around the world.

Easter beckons now, and I have been looking forward to the long break, The Chap and I have nothing planned except decorating his house and a dinner out courtesy of the £10 Frankie and Bennys voucher.

Happy Easter
Frugally yours
