Well, here it is again ... the end of another month and the seventh month of the Challenge. It is also the day after I recorded what could have been the splurge that ended the Challenge, but HEY .... you know me better than that .... way better than that. Of course the Challenge will go on, after all I have a whopping £9.83 left in my cash pot, not to mention a few coupons and hopefully some more to come at the end of this month.
So onwards and upwards .... or downwards in the case of the chest freezer, which for the first time I am actually glimpsing the bottom of!! I should have kept up with the inventory I made for it but like every other one I have ever done before it was never ticked off properly and kept up to date. So many things came out and then went back in in some other form. veggies out curries and stews back in etc etc.
My biggest learning curve this month - that I still have the urge to splurge occasionally, but nowhere near as often as I used to. But I also now do it in a controlled fashion so I guess something's changed for the better :-)
How am I feeling at the end of Month Seven - full of a real sense of drawing back the spending reins and instead plundering the poly and net tunnels to keep this Challenge going for as long as possible in the black. Yesterday's jettisoning of over £40 of the Challenge money in one fell swoop has, if anything. left me feeling even more challenged, but in a good yes we can do it way.
And after all that's what a challenge is all about!!
