Bills versus Savings

Bills bills bills


Savings savings savings

I have many of the first

None of the second

I’ve decided that 2012 will be the year I finally change this around.

We have lots of plans that require a lot of savings.

A new minibus to fit us all in.

A new oven.

A bathroom makeover

To just name a few.

The trouble is I seem to have so many outgoings and not enough income. So a few changes are needed.

I’ve been told that it’s now fashionable to be thrifty. It’s seems I’ve been in fashion for the last 17 years, I never knew.

My husband and I don’t have many treats his vice is his RC racing mine is definitely my books. But as we both don’t drink or smoke I can’t see this as a massive expense.

The girls are pretty good, they aren’t obsessed by designer names or the latest gadget, thankfully.

So where does our money go?

Well feeding teenagers is a big expense, I’m sure my kids have hollow legs, where do they put it all?



Diesel costs are through the roof and of course being your children’s taxi is rather expensive.

Gas, electric the prices are only going up and up.

Ice skating lessons, singing tuition , horse riding etc etc

All the above aren’t going to change so where can I save money?

Store branded food stuff maybe, Which do you recommend?

Walk if possible rather than use the car.

Shop around for the best fuel prices.

Cut down on our biggest weakness takeaways.

So does anyone have any ideas, any tips???
