Made it on schedule to £5000 put into savings by the end of October. However, I paid out for my season ticket at the end of September which has screwed up my calculations of how much I will end up with in total. Next September I’ll get an interest free loan from my employers so that the money is tidier (and I don’t lose the interest on my savings) but until then I’ll need to put away at least £300 a month more although it is just paying myself back really.
November and December I want to add 1600 more to my savings in total. Ideally another 200 for what I didn’t pay in September.
I’ve just spent several thousand of my savings on a season ticket for a new job. Although I’ll get more money each month so I’ll make it back I still feel poor. I didn’t put any money into savings at the end of September as I was too deflated about the whole thing.
Anyway. I’ve started keeping a diary and spreadsheet of all spending so hopefully this will help me not to waste money.
I hae changed this goal to 40 hours. I may not manage this by the end of the year but I’ll definitely get to 30.
I’m really struggling with this at the moment. I’ve got a new job which makes swimming (or doing much else)after work impossible and I’ve just been tired for the last month as so busy. I’ve also found myself wussing out of going to the roller disco. I haven’t been for ages so worry about it (I always get like this) I’ve increased my gym routine so it’s longer and a little tougher but if that’s the only exercise I do each week it’s just not enough. Next week I’m going to check the local facilities to work and see if there’s anything I can do on my lunch break. I could really do with yoga or something.
