We don't really have any debt apart from our mortgage which we've just started overpaying to save ourselves over £26,000!!! I have completed an income and expenditure form and this tells me that after all our essential bills have been paid we should be able to save £800 a month, we bought our home 2 years ago and while we love it it was previously owned by an old couple (in their 70's) so we need to change the decor, on moving in we decorated our 2 daughters rooms and then decided to get married so had to save for that but now we just don't seem to be able to save, this summer we paid to have some work done clearing our garden ready for a patio but now we're left with an awful "mud expanse" as we've ran out of money and can't buy the materials to complete it... please give me some tips on how to save and not spend that £800 or i feel i will forever wear wellies in my garden!
