Mo Money 52 week money challenge: Breaking the rules again, and taking CHANGE in week 18...£18 in the pot..sort of. What to spend on!!

52 week money challenge

I'm being more efficient with the whole picture thing. I'm trying out a collage app on my phone since really it's kinda of boring just going through the whole process with a stack of same old boring pictures.

Anyway the drama is another twenty quid (pounds sterling note) in the pot which meant I needed two quid (pound sterling) change.

The picture should support that process. The first on the upper left hand side is my twenty, then twenty and the money pot err... a bit of a mistake in ordering so the lower left hand side has the change and my twenty pounds then I put the twenty pounds in the pot. Confused? Confusing? Probably, you can see I had this bright idea on the spot. Next time I'll plan the pictures better.

 What to spend on!!

I'm thinking of getting a new tumble dryer. The old broke so I'm more or less going down the laundrette/ laundromat (US), and drying my clothes there. it's not that expensive, but it would be nice to have one. Who knows  if I continue I might be about to get a posh one...That is only if I continue because I'm starting to feel the pinch and also the annoyance of not having the right change. Plan? Yeah, but I don't have the time.

I could also maybe get a subscription for photoshop as I do my own book covers...or blow the lot (if I finish on my DREAM BAG a Smythson handbag - I've been eyeing them up for about seven years...

So let's look at my choices if I finish

  • A high-end tumble dryer
  • Subscription to Adobe and Vellum publishing - maybe a bit of editorial costs
  • A Smythson's handbag 
  • Savings for a rainy day....
Sounds good but we'll see.

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
