    Missy's spend £10 a week on groceries get the house sorted & hit this debt hard diary 10th Aug 17 at 4:56 PM
    Right debts are at an all time high! House is an all time mess!!!!! I'm going to put the two credit cards onto a single 0% card (hopefully) and try and pay it all off in 2 years! Which means hefty payments of £340 a month!! I CAN do it.
    And to get me started I am going to spend only £10 per week on shopping for the next 6 weeks!!!!! OH is away working so it's just me DD 4yr old May and DS 5yr old Roo to feed.

    I have MASSES of food in all cupboards, freezers and fridge!

    Along side this I need to get the house sorted, img my house is a mess, just stuff everywhere, Everything needs a good clean and a good declutter!

    So who's with me?!

    Will write a meal plan and shopping list for Monday later! And to keep myself accountable I will update daily!

    Much love

    Missy

    Thank you! Have just sat down to prosecco and a muffin, have been cleaning the bathrooms, out front and hallway. No idea why, just felt like it! My day was ok thank you. Not up there with the best though I have to say, but it's always the same. Anyway, small ones are asleep and all bathed, just need to polish Roo's shoes!

    Aw thanks honey! No I didn't write a list! But I think that may be my problem! I write a list and write a million things and don't get half of them done and then give up. But I just randomly decided to do things today! Have lots more to do, but I thoroughly cleaned stuff! I never do that!!!!

    Well I'm awake! I'm super tired, as adidn't get to bed until nearly midnight! But think we're all sorted for school.... Going for coffee with my friend straight after drop off, May is only there until 12 today. Would like to get some more tidying done this afternoon/evening.

    Thank you all again for all of the lovely birthday wishes, I really do appreciate it x

    Bought a few bits of shopping yesterday, need to work out what it comes to.

    Don't know if they are doing the offer in your area but I saw on groupon they are doing 3 odeon tickets for £15 I know it's still pretty expensive when on a budget but ok as a treat! 🙈

    Hope hubby treats you when he is home

    I made croutons last night with bread that was going a bit hard, I am hoping to stay out of the super market until tomorrow, I have carefully planned what I will spend my remaining 4.94 on

    Years ago I worked for a chap who insisted that everyone wrote down first thing in the morning everything we needed to get done that day and then worked our way through it ticking them off as we went .

    I have done it myself often when life seemed to overload, and time seemed to be running away with me, and it does work.

    I think if I do all these odd jobs then I can have a treat myself (usually involves a book and a cup of coffee )

    I love my list, don't write to many things. Be realistic with what can be done in the time you have that day. With your first brew write down 5 things that HAVE to be done. Then write 5 things you'd like to get done
    I love the satisfaction of ticking things off, and when I feel like I've done nothing but not sat down I can see what I have actually done.

    Good luck this morning x

    I too am lover of a list, otherwise I feel overwhelmed. My life is made up of a lot of lists- shopping list, things to be eaten lists, budgets- monthly and annually. I am maybe a bit OTT but it makes me feel in some sort of control in a crazy world haha!!
