Interest Rates rise by another 0.25%

Getting pretty used to the little text from Barclays now, informing me of yet another rise to my mortgage payments. If you have a mortgage and you aren’t on a fixed deal then expect a text or letter through the door soon. I don’t think I have ever heard from bank as much as IContinue reading “Interest Rates rise by another 0.25%”

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.

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”

No Spend Diary – 25th April

The day started off on a bit of a low when I checked my emails to find there was nothing to say I had won the lottery. I then ventured into the kitchen (at 6.28am on Sunday thanks to the 2 year old) to discover Mr Calamity had left the Ice Cream out all night.Continue reading “No Spend Diary – 25th April”
