    Just quick to say the shopping worked well although I wasn't overcharged for anything I spent far less than I have been doing lately and got everything on my list.:D
    This week it's back to my tidying up list that I had pre house disaster and I want to get completely out of the rented accomodation, clean it up and hand it back. It'll mean bringing a load of our stuff back before there's anywhere to put it but at least all my mess will be under one roof!
    Might pop into Flylady and see how she's been coping without me:rolleyes:
  • Amazing!

    I have actually managed to put all the stuff back into the cupboard and it is really organised now! Woohoo!! My house is the tidiest it has ever been.

    This weeks challenge is to do some excercise every day as I would like to lose 3/4 stone. I have cycled 3 miles today and am feeling good.

    Best wishes to everyone else! :T

    This weeks challenge for me is to get everything sorted for a long weekend away. As far as I know we are staying at our grandads so I have to take EVERYTHING with me as he lives alone, I even have to take a beach towel with me :rolleyes: Must also remember to wrap MIL's birthday pressie :eek:

    I don't know what to do for this week's challenge. I'm feeling very down in the dumps and really can't be bothered with anything very much at the moment. Not good. I did manage to keep my spending diary last week but can't see the point in keeping it up - I know where my financial weaknesses lie and roughly how much I'm spending, the difficulty is actually changing my habits.

    (((hugs))) chin up hun!! Spending diary is a good idea so that you can keep on top of the spending. What about tackling one weakness at a time?

  • Sorry you are feeling down nabowla.

    What about a lifestyle change rather than purely moneysaving? I find it really difficult to drink 1.5 litres of water every day like you are supposed to, so that is one of my challenges. It may make you feel a bit brighter?

    Best of luck,

  • Hi everyone,

    Still going to keep up with the doing of the dirty dishes after dinner and am going to do 15 minutes decluttering in my (Flylady) zone as my new challenge. (OH asked me if I wasn't embarrased when I opened the door to people :o - well d'uh! of course I am but no point banging on and on and on about it :rolleyes: ) so very lucky the current Flylady zone is the entrance and hallway :p

    Well I managed to extract all our belongings from the rented accomodation and clean it through ready for OH to hand back keys today.:D Wow we're back home at last!:j
    Downside is there is stuff EVERYWHERE.:eek:
    This week DD1's bedroom is going to be put back together again and I want to get on top of my shopping by going back to using tescos online once a month and then being able to do weekly shop at different places to pick up the best offers.
  • Is this challenge/idea still active ? just seen how old the posts are but sounds like a great idea to me. I'm up for it

  • Im joining this one. I already keep a spending diary but have slipped on menu planning. I will start that on Monday also like the idea of drinking at least a litre of water a day. For rest of this week I will eat my bowl of porridge a day as I do forget to eat breakfast.
    Future goals will be do ironing before it builds up, get out of bed and down to allotment early and stop fretting about what others think of me.
    One challange per week will be fine.
