    Back in debt but not out

    Back in debt but not out 2nd Aug 16 at 6:58 AM
    Hi,

    It's been over a year since I was here last.

    Last time, we managed to get debt free by consolidating our debts, but due to a lot of things we are back in debt again.

    This past month has brought things to a head, we've been rather stupid and things have gotten out of control.

    So where are we with the debt:

    Barclaycard: 8829.88
    Overdraft: 2750.00
    Total: 11, 579.88

    Ignoring the OD for the moment, as I'm not too worried about that one, I need to make headway on sorting the BC out.

    Things coming up this month are:

    DD's birthday
    Pay remainder of DD's party
    Pay for food at DD's party - already ordered just needs paying
    Pay for DD's cake
    School uniforms for both kids

    Will post my plan in the next post, back in moment

    Afternoon,

    Just a quick round up.

    DS told me that there was no cadets this week but there are next week. The dinger dinner he defrosted, will hopefully be ok by Thursday and I can have it for lunch when I get home.

    Surveys done, got screened out of most of them but happy there.

    Total spent today: 74p which gives me 1.26p to carry over.

    I'm on a three day, working week so I could divide up my 10 between the three days but as DS has sports day on Friday, he's going to want drinks etc from the PTA tent.

    Really pleased about your daughters school report being good. She sounds like she is doing very well anyway, so were you not that surprised?

    Good luck with your interview as well.

    Morning,

    Didn't make my lunch last night, so will be buying it as cheap as possible.

    Dinner ready for tonight. Hairy Bikers Enchiladas, need to cook some rice to go with them.

    Busy day at work again today, but hoping I can get more surveys done while I'm at it.

    Bank account checked, nothing strange there, 2 days to DH's expenses go in.

    Back later x
