Extra expenses this week:

Four no spend days – which I’m very happy about. March is a busy birthday month for us, so the gift account took a hit, and I needed to buy a new iron. Ours developed a burning smell, and so for safety’s sake I bought a new one.

Of my £80 personal spending allowance I’ve spent £49.17 – hopefully I’ll be able to keep within this budget as I might need a little extra for the grocery this month and I don’t want to decrease any of our savings amounts.

In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.
