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”

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.

So that helps a lot since you can’t spendContinue reading “No Spend Diary – 3rd-10th 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”
