Dd is off to school shortly.. and I have nothing to do till 1pm.. Shopping temptation!
I've found a book online that I want to read & im giving myself permission to buy it.. I'm breaking the rules already arnt I!.. ok hear me out. It's called 'it's my life now, starting over again after abusive relationships'. It's supposed to have practical activities in it aswell so I figured as its a self help book it should keep me occupied for hours & help the healing process..

Here's an idea for everyone!
When was the last time you had a clean out/garage sale?
List somethings online & either save the $ or use it to buy something you really need.

Pretty much most of my belongings are in storage so the thought of going through things is overwhelming, there is so much of it!
I'm going to avoid the shops this week, or try to anyway, I am going to celebrate my birthday this weekend though and that will cost me money no doubt.

I will join too. I ended febuary with zero saved. way too many bills in that month, would have been worse if hubby hadn't covered the washing machine repairs. next month I have my rego, so I must focus on savings. I have enough food to not need groceries this week, and I have sorted my grandchildren's easter presents. my youngest son will be 30 next month and I would like to give him something special. ? so I have to stay focused on saving money. marie.

We've just cut down our CS and health insurance.
Current outgoings- rent, health insurance, CS, mobiles, internet, groceries, DH's debts.
Misc- presents (kids have lots of parties this month and they are all during our time??), anniversary celebration (cancelled- see presents), clothing, dental (my turn), optical (DH and kids).
DH is the worst... he loves ebay, and goes on it everyday. I do too, but I never buy anything (unless I have gone onto ebay specifically and found something)... whereas he buys DVDs, books, and music equipment regularly. About 10% of his wage is spent on this... irritating.
My entire wage is spent on groceries, part rent, and daily 'needs' for the kids (e.g. transport, drinks when out, etc).
I shop twice a week- when I finish a morning shift-and eat what we buy.
Determined to spend $100 or less on groceries this week.
