Writing Journal: Fridays Week 16 of the 52 week Money Challenge - Good Friday! Scavenging coins to make the balance.

I'm not sure it's the best thing to write and post a journal in a grumpy mood. But then again, this is about saving money when I'd rather be spending.  So the picture is upside down but money is money, right? So I was short by a pound but thought rather than put another IOU in the money pot, I could scavenge around my home for the cash. So I found forty pence in my bag, fifty pence on my dresser and  ten pence on my desk. So that made up a pound. Why don't I have a pound? It's pretty much a cashless society so I tend to use my cash cards all the time. I rarely used money though I might start again because cash cards lead to impulsive buying, especially food snacks. It's harder to keep to a budget when making purshases on cards. A long time ago, I only made big purchases on cards but now even with transport, I use it. Anyway not time to digress. You should already know what the other two notes are....I'm not going into them.

Then  next  so very interesting picture of the money pot with the takings of £16.00. Yeah, right, and the final is....

Finished - so 16 weeks down and 36 weeks to go. Note, I started on week 7 so I may or may not make up weeks 1 to 6. Just saying.  It's going to be £17.00 next week.

Money back in the pot

For those who just follow this painful challenge, on Monday, I put back the £3.50 I owed. I wasn't but felt a bit guilty and I should honour this challenge and also respect those who read it. Let not's take the 'mick' which means make a mockery. So I dug deep into my pocket and released the money to the pot rather than buying some nice treat.

So I'm now quits with the money jar. Until next week.

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.
