Week 25 of the 52 week Mo Money Challenge: Went to the bank and got the money out! Ouch!



Week twenty-five! Can you believe it? Wow! So today, I had a half day holiday from work and so decided instead of doing another IOU for twenty five pounds maybe I should just make a withdrawal. Normally, the banks are closed by the time I get home so I took this opportunity and that's the reason why I have twenty five pounds.  It was painful withdrawing the money, but it was better than owing the money jar more money. 

These challenges are only fun for those who make them, and write on how to do them. The actual doing  and saving is boring. Again, if you want to have regular savings, get a saving accounts and put a fixed sum preferably on the same day of your payday and put that money away. 

Look at how many times, I've put in an IOU into the pot. I think it's about three times now though I paid one off, paid a pound towards one and the larger one is still outstanding. And there has been a couple of  occasions when I needed change so I got it from the money jar. Yeah, I broke the rules, but it's a bit foolish if I needed to break a larger sum into smaller ones and I didn't use the money jar.  I think I broke a twenty into two tens or something. 

Anyway, regular savings is good but since it's a financial investment, remember my disclaimer, I am not  qualified to give financial advice so please seek  qualified financial advice before you make any investments.

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
