Daily Writing Journal: Week 15 Fridays Mo Money 52 Week Challenge! Breaking The Rules with £15 savings
I only had £11.50 so it was £3.50 short so I'm breaking the rules and putting in an IOU note for the balance. So lets call it out, one tenner, one pound and fifty pence in coins all make up £11.50 plus the £3.50 on the paper note makes £15. I'm not sure when I'm going to exchange the IOU for real cash. I guess I should at some point. Why? Well I just didn't have the correct change on me for the pot.
So the picture of the money pot and the £11.50 and £3.50 IOU note. I was actually thinking I needed to bank the cash soon but where? I'd probably need to open up a saving accounts. I was thinking a credit union account. Anyway let's just see how far I get.
The camera used the flash so it looks different from the rest of the pictures, but you can see the sad smiley face of my IOU note plus the other monies. Yeah, I guess that's it. Finance is boring, it really is, spending is more interesting but can make you BROKE and IN DEBT.
I'm thinking of cutting back on spending, maybe carrying packed lunch to work. I did try carrying vegetables crudités and homus but I got bored very quickly. I don't like sandwiches because they can get soggy with fillings, and salads just seem wet. What I eat at lunch? Typically just junk or whatever I can find for fancy. I admire people who bring in a packed lunch everyday. Maybe I won't need to do IOUs but at times it's hard to work hard and not feel the need to buy lunch once in while. Anyway that is another blog post for another day.
