So does anyone else have several little stashes saving for things way in advance or is that just me

I thought now that it is coming up to the new tax year I would start myself a new thread to keep a track of all my savings stashes so that I can keep the focus on topping them up each month and not borrowing from them

I swear at the end of every year I end up with a bank account with nowt in it and about a hundred IOU post it notes I have written myself for things that I have spent the money on

No more I say, no moreeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  • This wee stash is coming to an end as we are away in May 2017, one more wage to go then that is it.

    Had a great plan from away last year that kind of fell to the wayside a bit just because I took my eye off the ball a bit.

    Not gonna happen with the rest of the stashes :money:

    £298.00 transferred into the stash today.
    £298.00 to be transferred to the stash on 1 May 2017.

    Waiting on an acceptance or a decline on an M&S CC to see if I can use that to get a better rate on our currency for this trip.

    We are going to be visiting the US so will need both USD and CAD.

  • £25.00 per month

    Girls trip to Edinburgh to see Dirty Dancing, planned to save each month so that I am not looking for all the spending money in June which would be a nightmare.

    Once this is out of the way I will divert this £25.00 per month to the Nieces 18th Birthday Trip Stash :money:

    £25.00 - April 2017 - Paid :D
