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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
