    What small DFW things will you do w/c 8th October?

    What small DFW things will you do w/c 8th October? 8th Oct 18 at 7:06 AM
    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!

    Morning all
    Didn't have a great night, but determined to make the most of today
    I feel the need for fresh air and exercise, so will brave the wind and rain and walk to the post office and back (just a couple of miles), to post an ebay item that should go today. Wet, windy walk, but why not?


    Also need to:
    Get something out of freezer for dinner tonight - thinking beef strips, will do a stir fry with some of the veg I bought yesterday Done, very healthy (possibly a bit too much so for DH )
    Not intending any spends today, ebay postage will be paid via business account (and buyer pays for it anyway) Stocked up on more tissues, and bought a shampoo bar for DD2, so didn't manage a NSD
    Fridge stuff for lunch Done, I have at last finished the avocado hummus
    Check banks and update spreadsheet. I am ridiculously proud of this, as I have tracked every spend since 1 January This includes all bills, groceries, everything. The only grey area is OH's spends, but of these the bigger ones are paid by card (can see these when I check the bank statement) and as for his frittering, I just count the money he gets from the cashpoint and record it as cash spent under his name. This covers most of it, as I know he wouldn't bother / remember to record everything. I am quite shocked by the amount we have got through though It has been an expensive year due to helping kids out, illness, vehicle repairs and various other things. But watching the small things definitely helps - it would be a lot worse if I didn't! Now done

    Paperwork for business, just printed off accounts etc for last month Now done
    Write to aunt Still to do, though I am going to take my note pad upstairs for when I inevitably can't sleep due to coughing and wheezing, and do it then!

    Received a 5 shopping voucher from RM surveys for the recent Correctly Delivered survey

    Did a couple of online surveys

    And if I get anything else done with this rotten cold, it will be a bonus
    Ran out of steam a bit after my walk - spent most of the afternoon looking at handbag p0rn online - my insatiable quest for the perfect handbag Didn't buy one though!

    Morning,

    I'll post a quick update regarding yesterday's to do list.

    - Write out card for wedding and pop money into it. I wrote out the card and added money as a gift. I wasn't sure how much to put in but I figured because I've spent so much this year on the wedding already, they'll understand. They are the type of people who would much prefer your presence, rather then presents and don't expect much. The day is about them, everything else doesn't matter.

    - Visit my friend and her new baby. [I]I went to my friends for the afternoon and had lots of newborn baby cuddles. My friend absolutely loved the gifts.[/I]

    - Put away some of my ironing. I put all my ironing away and my room looks much better now! However I also went through my wardrobe and got rid of any clothes I dont want, ready to go to the charity shop. I've also got some old work uniforms which I'm going to dispose of. My wardrobe looks much better. I'll sort it out and organise it properly next week. There were items I haven't worn for years and always said I'd keep them just in case I lost the weight- well I haven't so far so once I do get back in the game and lose some weight, I'll just treat myself to some new well fitting clothes.


    - Go to the dentist. I went to the dentist yesterday. The boys teeth were spot on! I just need a little work doing to a tooth that's been chipped. I'll pay for this privately as I get discount and what I want isn't offered on the NHS. However the good news is that due to me being with the practice so long as a private patient, they are happy to transfer me over to an NHS patient which is what I wanted. Then if I do want any further work done down the line, I'll just pay private as I trust my dentist and his judgement/work. I'll just put the cost onto my 0%
    card and chip away at it each month. It doesn't feel like a blow to my funds then.



    - Pick my sister up from her inlaws. We picked my sister and her partner up last night. It wasn't too bad of a journey apart from heavy rain/poor visibility on the way there. However we did take the wrong slip round and ended up going down a route where road works were going on . It was indeed a laugh. My sister gave my friend petrol money so all is well in that sense and we finally brought everything home ready for the wedding!
    I've had a rather busy start to the day. The boy had an early ice skating lesson so we were out the door super early! I then dropped him at school and nipped to argos to buy myself something I need and also got some new pyjamas from the supermarket. I wanted a nice pair for this weekend and they were a good price .. so all in all, a rather spendy morning. I've sorted out all my online banking and aligned each fund up.

    I'm now having a rest, but I still have a lot to do to be honest. I'm taking it one step at a time and just doing the important bits. Everything else can wait till next week.

    - Put clothes into charity bags and put other bits away. This should be a quick fifteen minute job.

    - Sort through my socks/underwear drawers and make them tidy. I'll spare ten minutes to do this.

    - Sort through my makeup/toiletries and get rid of what I don't want. I'll spare twenty minutes to this and organise as I go along. I need a good clear out so I can see what I've got.

    - Plan and pack a bag for this weekend. I shall write a list and spare half an hour to this making sure I don't forget anything.

    - Give myself some TLC ready for the weekend. I will do what I can at home and then the rest once we are settled in the hotel.

    - Sort out the money in my purse. This will take me ten minutes at most. I just need to seperate what money I have for the wedding and what money I had left beforehand.

    - Pick the boy up from school and get him changed. I am picking him up early from school so we can set off earlier.

    - Drive to the destination. I am hoping to set off by 4pm at the latest. Hopefully I will avoid traffic.

    - Go for a meal tonight. I will use money from my entertainment fund to cover this as I hadn't thought about it beforehand.

    - If I have time, fill in a form for the boy for an extra curricular activity he is interested in. This isn't that important and it depends if my laptop will let me fill it out as it is a word document. I just need to fill it in and send it off.
    It should only take ten minutes.


    I best crack on really! I'm just having some breathing space before I tackle everything head on.

    Chandelier.

    Afternoon all,

    Dawn, hope you are feeling better after you're windy walk.
    Clf, I hope youre feeling better too.

    Not a lot from me today
    * gym done and refilled water bottle
    * breakfast fridge use up brunch
    * take ds2 & a friend to the library after school whilst we wait for ds1 & friend to finish an after school club
    * pizza at home with the kids rather then out for a Mcd's as I would used to have done
    * after taking the ds's friends home, I think a comedy dvd and cuddles with dh would be a good idea, its been a stressful week and we defintely need some time together and laughing is good for the soul.


    Thinking of those of us with stressful times at the minute, Foxgloves, I hope you're doing ok and CCl you're another week closer to half term.

    Morning all
    Thanks for thinking of me 1LL - I'm ok - just incredibly busy at the moment. I will be fine because I always am.
    I was too tired for anything by the time I got home last night. DS has his swimming lesson after school on a Friday and then I dragged him to Mr S to do the shopping (as it was close to the pool). Was after 6 when we got home so I just sat and watched a bit of tv rather than picking up schoolwork etc.
    I've already been out this morning and finished the shopping at Liddle - was quite disappointed this morning to be honest. Lots of stuff I usually get there wasn't available. Shame because I quite like shopping there as it's such good value.
    Other plans for the day - I need to catch up with bestie, it's been a fortnight.
    Some school work
    Tidy round, hoover, stay on top of washing.
    Relax as much as I can because it's been a long week.
    I've gotten up this morning and just thought that the house is an absolute state so I think I'll be working on that in between other things.
    Have a good day all, and stay safe if you're caught up in Storm Callum.

    Afternoon all
    Heavy rain and wind yesterday and overnight, but warm (though windy) now, just a bit annoyed that I haven't done any washing as it is ideal drying weather! Got up quite late (for me) this morning, still sleeping in the loft conversion to avoid waking OH with my coughing. It is remarkably quiet up there. Cold is much better, just the cough is annoying when it starts. We are supposed to be going out later to a charity thing, and I think if I can avoid coughing I will go. I cough due to being asthmatic and any respiratory thing sets it off, as opposed to it being something others would catch.


    Today's small things:
    Washed hair and left to dry naturally - not sure how moneysaving that was, as I used the shower in the loft conversion ensuite for a change, and discovered that the shower hose is split and needs to be replaced Must do this.
    DD2 came round with kids, and I entertained them for free

    Used up eggs, the last of the kale, a bendy pepper and some mushrooms in a frittata I made for lunch. Added some parmesan and a few chopped up bits of the chorizo mountain (bought several a couple of weeks ago, as Lidl had them on offer, they keep for ages in the fridge, and are so handy when I can't think of what to make for dinner / want something different). GD had a cheese sandwich and an apple, and baby GS had food his mum brought with them, so everyone was fed without any additional spends


    Now got to get clothes ready for the charity thing - it isn't too late, thank goodness. Hoping to meet up with DD1 and family, and some friends there, so hopefully it will be a nice evening It includes a charity auction, so just need to avoid OH bidding on too many of the lots

    Hi all, late check in from me as I wasn't well through the night so am surviving on about 3 1/2hrs sleep today.

    We've not been out of the house all day so no money spent at least.
    Small things wise we've
    * eaten from stores
    * made melting moments biscuits for dessert
    * helped kids make banana & peanut butter muffins to keep the off their games consoles for a while! will freeze and use in lunch boxes in the week
    * watched a film from our stash (ok I say I watched, I tried to follow the story but still couldn't tell you what it was about.
    * had email saying credit card statement was available, decided to add the details into my spreadsheet and found that the spreadsheet is corrupted so frustrating as I'd had in my bullet journal this week to back it up will have to go back to September's sheet and restart October but it could be worse.

    Will definietly be a spendy day tomorrow as ds needs new football boots for school as he's outgrown his current ones and needs a waterproof coat for school too.

    Fingers crossed for a better nights sleep tonight and hugs to all those who need them at the minute.

    Morning all
    1LL and DNMS - hope that you're both feeling better. Sounds all a bit scary DNMS...
    I think the stress is finally getting to me. It doesn't now matter just how much sleep I get - I wake up feeling exhausted. I've overhauled my diet and am being a bit more active so think it's just anxiety etc catching up.
    I managed a reasonably relaxing day yesterday - caught up with bestie as planned for a couple of hours, and I also finished crocheting a couple of hats as well. House is looking a bit better than it was.
    Tried to have a lie in this morning, and failed so I've been up since 7 and am still doing a bit of tidying here and there. There's a load of washing in, I've washed dishes, hoovered and put the recycling out. I'm tutoring for a couple of hours and then visiting my mam later so plenty to keep me occupied.
    Have a good day everyone.

    Thanks guys for your support. I think I'll make a GP appt tomorrow as it was frightening and isn't the first time something like this has happened.

    Wanted to share my dog training success! I was recommended to look at Victoria Stilman site on dog training. I went out today and did the walking on leash training and it was a massive success! A bit annoying that you have to keep turning & walking the other way every time he pulls but it was water to wine! 90% of the time he was walking along calmly with us.

    Went to the dog park and he met a few other older dogs who were calm and happy to interact with him and it was such a better experience than it has been since the incident with my neighbours pup

    All in all counting that as a massive success! I think by the time we drop him back on Thurs he'll be lead trained

    Afternoon all
    Hope all the poorlies feel better soon - there are some horrible things going around atm. Usually seems to coincide with the early weeks of a new school year! Hope you manage to get checked out soon DNMS

    Went to a flea market this morning in the pouring rain Luckily it was held inside, but mad or what! Really horrible weather, rain and high winds, sheets of water on the roads, but not nearly so bad as others are having. A friend in Camarthen posted some pictures of a nearby village on FB, and it looks awful Anyway, not much spent, and that came from business money.

    Totally not MSE, but we decided to replace out ancient, temperamental and inaccurate satnav. Been putting it off for months, but I found a deal on Amazon this morning, and put 10 of gift cards earned from surveys towards it. Getting a Garmin this time, as they seem cheaper than the Tomtoms that we have had before.

    I have decided to make pies this afternoon - I have made the pastry, currently resting in the fridge (it doesn't look as though it will behave well, I can just tell!) and apple and quince, and mince and mushroom pie fillings made. Just got to put them together and bake them now No prizes for guessing what will be for dinner later Done, made 4 apple and quince, and 2 larger minced beef, onion and mushroom pies Gave bro one of the apple pies to take home, one in fridge, and 2 frozen. Had most of one of the meat pies for dinner (fed 3, including OH and my brother, who are gannets, and there is still a portion left) and will have the other pie later in the week

    Also made soup to use up cooked ham and chicken stock and assorted veg


    Other things:
    Started a shopping list as I am starting to run out of staples again
    I won't be going today though!
    Must remember to look on the local food bank's FB page to see what they are particularly requesting atm. I usually donate about 5 worth at the beginning of each month, and haven't yet - October seems to be running away with itself

    Repurposed a bag that came with bagels in it (OH is mad on those atm, for some reason) to put in rest of a YS TTD Mediterranean loaf, basically sun dried tomato bread, which we started for lunch, and whose own wrapping had split.
    Need to sort out and label some items for my sales unit tomorrow.

    Better finish coffee and get on with these pies!

    Thanks Dawn I too haven't got round to putting anything in the foodbank box this month yet and hadn't thought of looking up to see what they actually needed. I normally just put in porridge, pasta and coffee. After reading your post I've looked them up on fb and porridge and pasta were two of the things they had listed as having plenty of. So I've now added some toiletries and squash this time

    * Made a batch of celery and shrapnel soup using mountain of chopped celery from the freezer. Blended with the smoothie maker.

    * Dinner was mince and shrapnel in pastry.


    * Triaged fridge and freezer.
