Hi all, not done a diary for a while cos I pretty much sorted myself out (thanx to lots of help from this site):T, but now im back to keep me on track with paying off my caravan loan, that’s the reason why I got rid of all my other little debts, so I could get a loan for the van:cool:.
So now im paying it off with extra bits and hoping to get my DFD down but not too bothered about that, I just want this diary as a reminder to keep paying extra off the loan.
Im hoping to move away in a couple of years, my mam doesn’t know yet so don’t tell her! So I need to start saving for relocation costs e.g. rent deposit, furniture if needed etc.
Ive posted my SOA for me really, just so if im struggling I can come back to it and see what I need to tweak in order to save more money.
Feel free to join in but im not sure there would be anything for you to add…lol

    A spending diary would help you to see where your money goes.
    Could you have a car boot sale/ebay to arget your two small debts?

  • Just came across your diary. So where do you want to relocate to? Where is your Van or is it a touring van. I havent got anything to contribute to your SOA but I am intrigued by the "dont tell mum" because I struggle with my OH's parents SORRY does not do it justice.

    Looking forward to reading more.

    I live in Cumbria but my dad lives in Worcestershire and i was thinking if i lived in Lancashire i would kind of be in the middle of both.
    I moved away to work at Butlins 2 days after my 18th birithday and ended up staying away for 5 years, came back home, had kids and ended up just staying in my home town, but im missing living next to the motorway (its a 45minute drive from here) and i miss my dad, i would be an hour and a half from my mam and dad in both directions and would be able to see my dad more:T
    This time moving would be more difficult because of the kids and the fact that i would have to run it past their dads (who im not with by the way) plus being a single parent could i hack it just having the kids on my own all the time??? im the kind of person to go out and find friends anyway so im not too bothered about that.
    The caravan is about 10 minutes from where i live now, its a static so when i did come home for a visit i could stay there :)

    Beanielou, i deffo need a spending diary, although i cant start today cos im off out on an all day sesh and by 10 i wont be able to see straight ha ha:rotfl::rotfl:
