It’s the end of the first week of my no spend month. I didn’t do a grocery shop this week as we’ve eaten meals I’ve prepared earlier and frozen. Instead this week, I used some of the food budget to buy our Christmas meat: beef, pork and turkey for £17.50. Once upon a time, this wouldn’t have paid for a turkey but we’ve pared back Christmas and we do that thriftily too.
I used ziffit to sell a load of DVDs and book and they’ve now credited the money to my paypal account, that’ll fill our car with diesel this week. It sort of feels like we can go to work and back for free next week.
When it’s turned nippy, we’ve heated the house with firewood bought in spring so we’re heating prepaid and for way less than turning on the gas central heating. We have a tiny house, tiny stove and heat ourselves for the autumn and winter for £20 a month.
We’ve listed and sold on eBay and added money to savings and given ourselves some space.
Don everything we usually do: packed lunches, taken our own coffee, home cooked food, laundry dried on the line, amused ourselves for free.
