Happy Birthday To Me! Happy Birthday To Me!

So where are we?

April is coming to a close and tomorrow is pay day.  I like to give an update on my debt before pay day.

My debt currently is sitting at a total of £1240.60, down from £1990.80 in January. This includes this month’s interest on Credit Card 1 of £2.20.

My debt is split as follows

Credit Card 1   £334.78
Credit Card 2   £608.02
Overdraft        £300.00

Tomorrow I can pay more off.

Umm, today is my birthday. I turned 36. Let’s hope that this time next year at 37, I will be debt free. Having a great birthday everyone is so kind.

I turned up to my evening class yesterday with Banana and White Chocolate muffins for everyone. The recipe came from here and they were dead easy to make, though I did add some honey too.

Making cakes is such a small and cheap way to spread the joy around.

Look at the cake work got me! Brilliant! A Ma-hoo-sive Mr Kiplings’s French fancy. Who could not get excited about this? My day is now perfect.

Some Ideas For the next 5 weeks until June Pay Day
-          Shopping under £80.
-          Pay back an extra £40 off the debt by either selling items or economizing.
-          Try my hand at making a different bread.
-          Finish the wrap dress.

Frugally yours
