No Spend Diary 1st-7th Jan

Overall, a pretty cheap week. Definitely not no spend, but after the frenzy that was Christmas it was much calmer. New Years Day was super cheap, we went to the beach and ate some cake. I confess I bought some mash potato, but it was only £1. Sunday 2nd we went to the Deer Centre,Continue reading “No Spend Diary 1st-7th Jan”

Side Hustle #3 KDP (Print on Demand)

If it is passive you are after, this one is golden. Or it least it will be when someone buys my damn books. Next time you are on Amazon, take a look at the books information closely. If it says ‘Independently Published’ then it will be a KDP book, usually created by a side hustlerContinue reading “Side Hustle #3 KDP (Print on Demand)”

My Money Resolutions for 2022

I always feel a little sad at this time of year. Optimistic but with a definite undertone of regret for all the things I resolved to do last year but didn’t. But, 2022. It is going to be my year. Firstly, I am going to learn more about finances. Not just where to buy theContinue reading “My Money Resolutions for 2022”

Investing – Our dip into Crypto

Every few months or a year Mr Calamity comes at me going on about Bitcoin. How its the place to be, making millionaires left, right & centre and if only we saved/invested rather than eating quite so many takeaways. So I had been saving for a while now, just keeping what I could in aContinue reading “Investing – Our dip into Crypto”

No Spend Diary – 11th-18th May

Can’t stop, Won’t Stop. I REALLY NEED TO STOP It has all gone wrong, I don’t even know how it went so wrong when I thought I was doing so well. I have literally bought every cake I can find, then I did my weekly shop at Iceland to save money and still spend £80.Continue reading “No Spend Diary – 11th-18th May”

No Spend Diary – 3rd-10th May

Did I mention I like to spend? Well this week I have blown it out of the water and barely bought a thing. Mystery Shopping (see my Side Hustle #2 blog) took a bunch of my money, which I won’t get reimbursed until next Monday 17th! So that helps a lot since you can’t spendContinue reading “No Spend Diary – 3rd-10th May”

Side Hustle #2 Mystery Shopping

Oh this is the best work if you can get it. For starters, it is now available ONLINE. No more, popping round the shops incognito. Now you can do it from the comfort of your sofa in the relative warmth of your living room. The payment for this isn’t great as a time to moneyContinue reading “Side Hustle #2 Mystery Shopping”

No Spend Diary – 27th -3rd May

I had to switch to weekly as I was spending so much that it was just taking all my time up tracking it. I’m starting to think I might be some kind of compulsive spender. Though that does sound a bit harsh. This week things started to open up again after lockdown here so IContinue reading “No Spend Diary – 27th -3rd May”

No Spend Diary – 26th April

Another day, another trip to Co-Op. I’m in two minds about this. Mr Calamity will only eat Stephens Rolls that we get from Co Op, so I can’t add them to my weekly food delivery and I think they are fairly essential, I can’t find a suitable alternative to them at least. So maybe theyContinue reading “No Spend Diary – 26th April”
