Hi,

New diary time for me!

My 2020 goals are;
  • Stay debt free
  • Save £10,000.00
  • Get to goal weight of 10st
  • Get rid of 60 things I don't need
  • Use up the stationary and toiletry stash
  • Buy all Birthday and Christmas gifts in the sales
  • Keep a spending diary
  • £1,000 on surveys
  • Only shop to replace items I use
  • Keep this diary up to date

    3 things done already this morning;

    * Glasgow Credit Union will be best for her, just need to get her to set up the account now
    * Firstbus added an extra day to my current annual pass, bus driver should have accepted the displayed version if the machine wasn't working properly
    * Emails cleared out, most of it surveys that I had missed over the festive period - oops!

    Another 3 thinks ticked off the list;

    * Letters all checked and sent to the shredder in work
    * Contacted Virgin and TV licencing for him
    * Checked my CC balance, £134.99 - God knows how its this high already!

    Dxxx
  • Also NOW TV charged me £8.99 for the Entertainment pass so my current deal must be up, went online to cancel and the offered me £1.60 for the next 3 months.

    Will put a note in my diary to go through the cancellation again in April so that I am not paying full price in May.

    Also just remembered why my CC is so high, £50 petrol and £50 for an upgrade to my Amazon Firestick.

    I love it, wish I had got one years ago.

    I have Amazon Prime which I use when I'm travelling to and from work for music, I use the delivery all the time and the photo storage.
