Every day, I try to be frugal, I try not to spend and try to be a better person.
That is my philosophy.
Recently I have increased my debt a little bit, but overall I have paid off very nearly 70% in 9months.
But the next few weeks are going to be expensive.
The cost of moving means Christmas may be a little less cheery this year.
When you rent your property there are a lot of checks etc that need legally to be carried out.
Gas and electricity certificate. c£55 each.
I also need to close off the EDF energy accounts for gas and electrcity. I need to pay for storage for 3months whilst we get organised and I want to get the oven professionally cleaned ready for some new tennants.
Finally, the garage door has been broken now for circa 10 years (yes I know! But I know the knack!) so that either needs to be fixed or replaced £90-350.
Oh and did I mention the £350 required to pass to the letting agents to find the reliable and checked tennant.
I think in total I am looking about c£600-800 just to move out.
So I will continue to chip away at the credit card bill, but realistically this last £600 odd pounds is not going to get cleared until next year.
However, Hurrayyyyyyy! for moving in together.
Even something really exciting costs!
