When we start out on the DFW trail we do loads of "big stuff" that makes quite a difference to our situation. These include having our lightbulb moment, cutting up the credit cards and cancelling Sky and the gym.

But once we have done the bigger stuff, we often feel that we are not making the same amount of progress, when in fact the small steps are helping us form good financial habits and helping us get closer everyday to staying in control and becoming debt free, or staying debt free.

Examples could be hanging washing out instead of using the tumble dryer or leaving your purse/wallet at home to avoid the risk of spending.

So be proud of those small steps, they really are important 😀

    What are you doing to me???!!! All this talk of Jam roly poly and chocolate sponge and custard!! :wink:
    Thanks @PurpleFairy26 for this weeks thread.  
    Welcome to new posters/lurkers,  its a great thread. 
    Today in the way of small things...
    * we've washed a load on the quick wash and hung out to dry (took a lot longer to dry then of late as it was a much cooler day)
    * checked banking/updated spreadsheet - last of the dd's out today
    * all meals from stores,  had chicken burgers with salad for lunch and Sunday lunch leftovers for tea. 
    * checked tcb to see if cashback has moved to payable - no such luck
    * chopped and froze a too far gone banana,  froze a loaf of bread for toast
    * watching "my family" on iplayer with dh,  we're enjoying it and its much better for us then watching lots of news! 
    * went out for an hours walk with dh after tea,  we had to wear coats in case of rain but stayed dry thankfully and it was good to get out for an hour. 
    Think thats about it,  take care all

    Sticking with the "Small things" thread to keep up us on the straight and narrow.
