I am obviously one day late with this end of month round up but I needed to publish the last shopping that I bought in April on yesterday's post to get up to date.
The figures are now making shocking and slightly scary reading, and actually looking at the cash left in the pot and taking the above photograph really brought it home to me, and made me ask myself ... will I be able to see this Challenge through, can I claw back and somehow get the finances back on track? There really is only one thing I can do in my opinion to try and get us back to a level playing field ... I have decided to get serious, very serious!!
This month there will be a very limited spend and I will tell you more about it tomorrow when I have finally worked out just how serious to get.
My biggest learning curve this month - that I haven't been taking this as seriously as I should if I do actually want to see this Challenge out!
How am I feeling at the end of Month Four - even more determined to get this Challenge back on track and make it more frugally interesting. Making better use of what we have available free of charge that is already in the house, the Veggie Patch and the polytunnel.
Today is a No Spend Day - phew!!
