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.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
