    In the Lowest Hour 8th Feb 15 at 10:31 PM
    In the Lowest Hour..I wonder if I can get any lower.


    Money ...


    I'm so reliant
    I'm so dependant
    I'm such a fool


    Sam Smith could have written that for me ..


    Where do I start?? ..yes that's right by making a coffee ...and having a long hard look at everything ....


    I know where I am but the denial and longing not to be in my current situation kicks in ...


    Am I motivated ...not in the slightest ...


    SOA going to make me feel sick ..pig sick ...


    My mission is to log in everyday and get sorted ...anything has got to be better than this, I loathe myself and my situation that has got to change.

    Savings update £8400


    I am going to put in a request soon with work to work only 3 days I think, Hopefully this doesn't mean I do 5 days work in 3 and only get paid for 3 lol. Cynical or what :-)


    I am going to start doing ebay again but only 2 things a week.


    Typically Listed and both things sunday and sold so I have some earlier than expected posting to do, although one of them has not paid me yet so hope not a time waster but could mean I will have netted £35 in profit.


    I have £65 ish in cashback sites accrued so I should be able to get this soon.


    If I cut my hours I am not sure in reality how much could be saved but will aim for £150 a month so new aim is 9k By December.


    Hope everyone is good.

    Savings £9000 I hope!!

    Hacked into the savings so now lower than expected.
    Still not sorted the clothes / wardrobe as been sorting the bedroom - still a work in progress but starting to look nicer.


    Few small ebay sales but see what that amounts to at the end of the week But I must admit cant really be motivated to do it.


    Got some Lamps, Rugs and new towels in my online shopping basket to order for the end of the week to finish it off.


    Need to organise making a good 3bay pile or taking it all to a charity.


    then the Kitchen next project

    OK Sorted a mass of things for charity just got to sort that out now to get it there. £bay pile under the bed in suitcases. Winter bedding washed and kitchen de-cluttered.


    Still to do Wardrobe sort out and savings. Send back the rugs that are completely random and not even what I ordered. £10 voucher from argos as compo and that is now gifted to friend.


    Resisting an item in the sales on-line well at least until I sort the wardrobe.


    Hope all is good, savings draining away but good to have some new things as been scrimping so long forgot what new things feel like :-)

    Things to do
    Sort out what I will be earning PT ( scary Thought )
    Phone up the charity so spread the love (well collect the stuff really)
    Look at 3bay sales for August 2 days for items left and current sales are £68.99 so hope to reach £90 by Sunday this week - only aiming for £100 this month as so tired.


    Still haven't done the wardrobe cull but that can wait until the weekend or next week.


    Resisting the online sales :-)

    I blew £200 on a Lguinness Handbag, Purse, Brooch/ Pin, Handbag Mirror and bag charm in the sales.

    Think I suffered withdrawal and well and truly lost the plot there.

    I may well do some 3baying this weekend as BH as I made £120 profit, so actually only spent £80 plus 3bay profits.

    Have internet again :-) as well so happy about that .
