HAPPY NEW YEAR! WELCOME TO 2013
Life will be back to 'normal' soon enough, so make the most of the break and prepare to meet 2013 with renewed vigour and let's all try to have more frugal fun.
Usual resolutions are made - get fitter, eat less, stick to the budget, avoid debt and make a Will. The latter has been on my list for several years but I really do need to sort this out now that I'm part-owner of a house. The legalities are complicated, so best be prepared for all events.
No spending to be done today but the year got off to a good start with email from Amazon informing me that I have a voucher heaing my way to the tune of £27 something or other, so that's a great start to my 'EEK' Money-making Challenge. Added to what's left over from 2012's vouchers earned through cashback sites and Nectar points, that should take me up to about £35. For the benefit of new readers, EEK stands for 'Everything Else Kitty', which is a separate challenge from my £4,000 household budget challenge.
That's all from me today, dinner is almost cooked and I haven't even finished making the trifle. Organisational skills haven't improved since 2012 left us last night, that's for sure.
Have a great year, everyone!
