One of my favourite days of the month is the first. I love seeing all the big payments going out to the loan and CCs. We pay £1032 in total a month for the last year. At the time that meant we would be debt free by the end of 2022 but we kept spending without thought so we are now having to pay that and find overpayments to achieve the same goal - you live and learn!
Nice weekend plans for us with the usual kids classes and a play date with friends at our house then lunch with friends ok Sunday. Meal out is the only big expense and it’s not an expensive place so fingers crossed will be well within budget.
stuff this week and also we seem to run out of kids lunch hits half way through the week and then need to keep topping it up. We’ve made a plan to increase our snacks/lunch bits in the food shop so we have extra to take in our lunches so we’re less tempted to buy something on a whim and then make plans for my day off so I’m less likely to want to go to the bakery at the end of the road.
