    The Happy Savings Fund 18th Feb 15 at 6:31 PM
    I am going to copy over all my posts about my new kitchen or lack of it!!!!

    I am changing my thread name back to a more saving focussed one so I don't get distracted.

    Addendum: I have changed the name again as I am planning to chill out now I have savings and am going to continue to save for happy times. lol.

    Hello ladies, it's hard as everyone I know is planning to go on a lovely holiday and I wont be able to. Today was a good day, I had a lovely fry up, then we walked round the shops. I bought eye drops, new diary for next year, loaf of bread. My total spend was £3.75.

    I have £15 in my purse now for the week ahead. It'll be cheap as my parents will bring loads of food for me.

    I do have slightly more in my bank account but I am not going to touch it. I hope I am able to take in students over the summer as I don't know how I can cut back any more.

    Ive just put a wash out and will sleep for a bit (as I am tired after the fry up ) then I will do some ironing.

    I might ebay some odd stuff around the house in the holiday. I am looking out for things I can get rid of.

    I'm sure there was a thread in the "Boost Your Income" forum at one point about taking in students over holidays. Might be worth a read to see what other people's experiences have been, and what kinds of questions you should ask the woman who comes to view the house?

    Edit - Found the thread! http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=576176

    Thank you so much. It sounds quite good. I think I might enjoy it if I am accepted!

    I have seen the weather and it will be good tomorrow so I am taking tomorrow as my day off in the week so I can spend the day with my parents who are visiting.

    Housey is tidy - ive cleaned gas cooker, fridge, bathroom so I can chill. I still haven't ironed and might do that tomorrow.
